    Lazarus's Note:

    This is so simple I feel guilty calling it a recipe, but it sure is delicious. This is my breakfast staple going on 3 years now.

      Loved this breakfast! Easy to make and delicious. I made just as specified, being generous with the hot sauce. I was afraid that 5 minutes under the broiler would be too much but it was just right. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009

      Really good breakfast. Added a little extra cheese and salsa, but didn't change anything else. This will be a regular on our breakfast menu. Great eye appeal as well as taste makes this a great breakfast for guests as well. Thanks for posting Lazarus.
