Very delicious! I served this as dinner for two, along with a green salad. The only changes I made were as follow: 1. Since I had no green onions, I substituted lots of chopped chives. 2. I used lowfat milk instead of half-and-half. Fantastic recipe!

This was a great lunch meal! I had it with the bacon, because I indulged myself. :) A really nice recipe. UPDATE: Hubby made this for lunch today, and used rye bread crumbs - an excellent addition that makes the recipe even better!

This was good, but seemed to lack something. I didn't like the crumb crust at all...would be better with a biscuit-type crust or a pie crust. I think that would've helped.
