This was a solid recipe that I'm keeping in my files for future use. I agree with the previous reviewer that the taste was a bit bland (and I believe the texture was a tad rubbery). However, this is such an easy recipe that uses staples so it is worth keeping and tweaking. I made the following adjustments in my first try: I used Egg Beaters instead of eggs, I used canned diced tomatoes instead of slices. I added a couple of dashes of Tabasco to the wet mixture before baking. Next time, I believe I will try using Bisquick instead of just plain flour.
We had this dish for brunch today & loved it! I made it in a 9 in round glass pie dish sprayed w/PAM + 1 ramekin as a test. The ramekin was perfectly done in 30 min & the pie needed 45 min to cook. DH loves food for 1 reason - taste. I loved this for its delicate taste + ease of prep & lovely presentation, but it did seem a tiny bit bland to me. This is surely the most subjective of all personal preferences. It is so difficult to please all the people all the time. DH thought it was just delicious & did not need tweaking at all. When I make again, I will likely add some McCormick Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning Salt, a much-favoured blend that seems to work well for me. Pls see my rating system & thx for sharing this w/us.
