i tried this recipe for our family easter dinner. unfortunately, it sank like the heavy dish it was. I am sorry but we found it to be bland, heavy, gritty in texture, and eggy in flavor, almost like a cheesecake went head on with a quiche. we threw over 3/4 of it away, which was a very expensive venture.
