Amazing egg dish my mom has made every Christmas morning for a long time. My picky fiance loves it and decided to call them "basil cakes", but they aren't actually cakes... Anyway, it's great, try it with hashbrowns or country potatoes.

A very enjoyable way of serving eggs! Made it this time just to see how it would work, & another time I'll jazz 'em up with some baked potato wedges! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

A very easy recipe that turns out a very fancy breakfast! Great flavor. Would be good with Swiss instead of mozzarella, also. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
