Eight oz. of mushrooms for 5 eggs? A whole onion? Even more startling, 1-1/2 TABLESPOONS of Italian seasoning? For 5 eggs? Especially regarding the seasoning, one could reasonably assume this has to be a typo! That said, if I were to rate this recipe according to these measurements, I would assign it one star, and according to AR’s guidelines, that means inedible. If I were to rate this, however, on more sensible measurements, I would rate this 5 stars. Not only did I not use 1-1/2 T. of Italian seasoning, I used none at all – because I don’t use “Italian” seasoning. But if I was to use it, I’d use a more reasonable 1/4-1/2 tsp. – “to taste” if you will. Besides, garlic and herb Boursin has quite a lot of flavor on its own and because of it you’d be pushing it with extra seasoning. I did, however, add some chopped fresh chives to compensate for omitting the “Italian” seasoning. As for the mushrooms and onions, I added what looked right to me, and it was far less than what the recipe directed. The Boursin added a pleasant, subtle, herby creaminess, and while the mozzarella didn’t contribute much flavor, it added a decadent gooiness. So in the final analysis, made as directed with at least one possible typo (the amount of Italian seasoning) this would be 1-star inedible. With more conservative amounts of everything, we loved it, 5 stars. In fairness, I’ll rate it midway in between at 3 stars, which assumes the reader takes into account these considerations.
