    Made a beautiful presentation. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. I would add salt and pepper into the recipe next time. Cuts cleanly from the pie plate.

    This is such a great dish. I forgot to get the Monterey cheese and used all sharp and also added fresh garlic! Out of this world. Will make it a lot!

    Very good flavor and it lends itself to innovations; you could add bacon bits, sausage crumbles, or ham bits…
