My boss brought this delectable stuff to a staff luncheon. She said that the spice measurements are approximate and to feel free to tweak tem according to taste. Easy to heat quickly in a microwave.

Co workers loved it but I had to modify it because the pan size was so iregular. I used 9x13 pan, cut the milk to 32oz and the eggs to 9.
