Sunday Brunch - very nice recipe. I had to use dried basil, some chopped sweet onion and dried chives and it was stil very tasty. I used cottage cheese instead of sour cream - Do again for sure.

Just as good as an omlette and much easier to make for multiple servings. I think step 2 means to say green onion.

We tasted the eggs before adding the sour cream and really like them but after adding the sour cream it changed the texture which we didn't care for. We thought we should have topped the eggs with the sour cream instead of mixing it into the eggs. Bullwinkle
