My entire family loved this dish. It was really tasty and the texture was great. I increased the eggs to a total of 9, and used 1/3 cup of half and half. I used 2 medium zucchini, a whole red bell pepper, 8 oz of mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic and a whole yellow onion. I didn't do the measurments stated in the recipe. I chopped all of the veggies quite fine in the food processor, and I was very happy with the result. Make sure you cook the veggies very well, until all of the water is cooked off. I will definitely keep this recipe and make it again and again.
This was good, but not great. I used the food processor to process all the veggies (zucchini, yellow squash, red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, and onion) If I do this again, will add more herbs to liven up the flavor.
Great recipe cold or hot although a bit more flavorful hot. Cutting the cream cheese in half also cuts the baking time a bit. Watch carefully. For more flavor I added 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, eliminated the salt and pepper and substituted 1 tsp. Mrs. Dash and 1-2 tsp. Spike. This recipe got raves from a very picky brunch guest!
another rave review! I made this for mothers day, a big crowd. As hostess, I LOVE these mix and dump recipes. This one has the added benefit of looking really pretty if you thinly slice a large tomato and embed it into the wet mixture and bake. Looks party and shower pretty but so easy.
I used asparagus and canned artichoke hearts. 9 eggs as earlier posters suggested. Asparagus were steamed until crisp before baking.
This is always a hit at office parties, as well as my house. I use red bell pepper instead of green; red onion; a package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained; and WAY more garlic. I love cremini (also called baby portabella) mushrooms in this. I believe I've used fresh tomatoes in this, and it was awesome. Make sure to drain the sautéed veggies before and after cooling before mixing with egg and cheese mixture so your end product isn’t watery. You can up the number of eggs if there appears to be too little to hold it all together, just eyeball it after mixing. I can't eat wheat, so I skip the bread altogether. I’ve made it with the 2 blocks of cream cheese, and just one, it was good both ways but VERY cheesy with both. Adding herbs is always tasty, but for those merely looking for more kick, it’s all-about the hot sauce at the table so everyone can alter exactly to their taste. Personally, I love chipotle Tabasco on any and all eggs.
This was excellent hot (and later, cold!). I served this to guests, and it flew off the platter! Next time, I won't add oil, and just saute in my nonstick pan (or spritz with Pam). I used chopped mushrooms, and with those and the oil, I ended up with a soggy mess in the saute pan. I had to drain/press out the liquid. If I hadn't, this would have been too soggy to eat. Next time I will add meat and/or veggies to this: sausage, chopped ham, crab, asparagus, broccoli, Swiss cheese, etc., would be some wonderful additions. I used one brick of reg cream cheese, and one of fat free. Next time, I'll try this with Egg Beaters. Also, be sure to butter the 9x13 pan well, to help get these out. I took them out when they were just out of the oven; if I had waited much longer, maybe they would have stuck a little more to the pan.
This is excellent *when* served cold. It's so much better the next day! It was just ok hot out of the oven, and that's why I gave it 4 stars. I topped it with sliced tomatoes and parmesan cheese after 50 mins in the oven. Also, I increased the amount of eggs like suggested by other reviewers (to 10). I used fat free cream cheese and grated my own white cheddar Wisconsin Private Reserve. Additionally, I used freshly ground pepper, sea salt, and red, yellow, and green peppers for color.
Great flavor! Very popular= served it to the PTA and they loved it. Added broccoli and substituted two small cooked potatoes for the bread. Have made it a couple of times. Once you get on to it, it is easy to change vegetables/quantities. Cream cheese is a nice touch. Will print it out and cover it in plastic this time!
