A friend who is low-carbing it gave me this recipe. I think she got it from a low-carb website; I'm not sure. Use your imagination to come up with filling ingredients - this is simply my favorite variation.

This was delicious!! Both my husband and I loved it. I used bacon in place of the olive oil and ham and added just a few halved cherry tomatoes. Will be making this again and again!

This is a very good recipe. I traded 1/2 n 1/2 for heavy cream and chicken for ham. I needed to season the chicken before and add some more seasoning but it was very good.

Yummy! My husband and I have been eatting a low carb diet for over a year now and I'm constantly on the lookout for more recipes to change things up a bit. Instead of broccoli I cut up several mushrooms, onions, and half a green pepper and added it to the ham. I like the light and fluffy texture the cream provided in this dish. I ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning. :) I plan on making variations of this recipe in the future, thank you for providing the good bones.
