Scrum-dittily-umptious! I've been looking for a quick savory breakfast for a loooooong time. I'm not a big sweets-in-the-morning girl and this really hit the spot! Next time I'm going to add scrambled eggs!

Carianne, I came to post this myself, but here they are! I just baked up a batch for today's breakfast, and they're very good. I used 3 strips of leftover bacon, and half parmesan for the cheese. I also used whole wheat pastry flour, replacing 1/2 c with soy flour for added protein and fiber. Next time I'll add more salt (because I didn't use the called-for amount of the salty meat, they could've used a bit more-- that was solved this time around by sprinkling a bit of salt on each half post-baking). My copy of Eating Well indicates 2 T melted butter and 1 cup sliced scallions. Thanks for posting!
