    These eggs are very light and fluffy almost like custard. They need to be made at least 6 hours before baking. From The Hoyt House of Fernandina Beach Florida.

      I cut the serving size down to one, placing one slice of buttered Jewish rye bread into a 6.5 inch cast iron fry pan and used american cheese with two eggs. Due to my bad planning, It was breakfast time and I was hungry! I set it in the fridge for about 30 minutes. I figured since it was a single serving, it would be ok. As it baked, I had to use a fork to poke it down as it kept fluffing up (perhaps because it was sliced cheese). Well, all that detail is important if your thinking of making this for one. And this recipe is highly recommended! What a delightful treat for breakfast. Custardy, creamy, dreamy, fluffy, etc., etc., etc.! It's a cross between very creamy eggs and and a perfect cheese omelet. The rye bread added wonderful flavor, so I would definitely recommend trying it that way, or with your own favorite bread. Cookiedog, you have made my morning! A definite keeper. Thanks for posting. ~Bird
