WOW, this is good!!! I made it for breakfast this morning and fell in love. I did replace the cream with fat free coffee creamer to trim the fat and used 2 eggs in stead of 3, also used a more heart healthy margarine on the toast. That said, I used the garlic and everything else ask for and it was delicious served with a slice of cantaloupe and some kiwi slices on the side :D. Made for ZWT 8
