I tagged this for zaar tag. This was very easy to assemble. It reminded me of an egg souffle my mom use to make for christmas. I enjoyed this. Next time I will add more spices cause this was just a tad bland. I want to try it with ham in it. I LOVE LOVE the cheese. Also love how it puffed up while it cooked. Thanks for another great recipe!
