    This was quite the crown pleaser for an Irish breakfast celebration on Thursday. I quickly realized that the eggs would never cook in a timely manner and made an executive decision to bake the eggs at 350º for about 15-20 minutes until lightly browned then finished with a final browning under the broiled and then a garnish of fresh scallions and flat leaf parsley. I'm not eating cheese right now but next time I will add some grated Dubliner or Skellig to the eggs (1/3 cup or so) and a garnish of same cheese on top after removing from the oven. We really liked the taste of the browned butter and also, before I forget I increased the breadcrumbs closer to six ounces. I saved the best part for last and only two words: Irish Butter. Amen. Thank you for posting. I will certainly be making this again soon! Prepared for FYC.

    I've made this three times over the last two weeks, and I loved it every time. It has the texture of an omelet, so it's light and fluffy but a bit more savory. It makes a great breakfast dish. Thanks, Baby Kato. We really loved this recipe!

    Very interesting and tasty dish! Not really a pancake, more of an omelet; actually kind of like eggs with the toast cooked right in! The herbs are a great flavoring in this and it's very hearty and satisfying. I made half of the recipe and it easily served three. Enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
