I love Todd Wilbur's copycat recipes because they taste like the original and they are tasty even if you haven't been to that restaurant. This recipe is no exception. I control the ingredients, fat and calories and make it at home with the taste the family loves. In this recipe you can us a tuna can, egg ring, egg pan or metal cookie cutter to get the egg just right. I use the Joie de Vivre 50162 from Amazon to make it perfect every time.
