This was a good filling breakfast. It took me longer that I thought for the eggs to cook. Once the whites were cooked, the yolk were hard, so I'm not sure how to remedy that. The cheese sauce was really thick and I added an additional 1/4 milk to thin it out for the top. All in all a good, filling breakfast, saved best for the weekend.
