    I've made this recipe using Perdue Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausage, egg beaters and added lots of veggies (ex. peppers, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, etc.). Boosts the fiber and helps get the veggies in for the day. I also serve it with a dollop of salsa on top. Yummy!!! - 1/3/09

    We used italian turkey sausage, added mushrooms, finely chopped fresh spinach and 1/4 of an onion that was cooked with the sausage. We also did 1/2 egg beaters and 1/2 egg. I put this into muffin cups, and it made 24. We had 2 of these for breakfast and and now have bfast to go ready for others. - 2/28/09

    Made a few adjustments like using turkey breakfast sausage and eggbeater's instead of the eggs. I added 1/4 c. chopped onion to the sausage while browning it. The whole family loved it, I'll definitely be making it again. - 9/19/07

    I didn't have all cheddar so I used the package of mozarella and cheddar combo, I also added one medium can of mushrooms, one small can of green chilies and some onion ... it was delicious. Today I added diced tomatoes and am anxiously waiting for it to come out of the oven so I can try it. - 6/14/08

    I don't use sausage so I substituted turkey pepperoni...Today, I am substituting with Oscar Mayer Ready to Eat bacon. My family loves it!! I did add onions and left out the salt. I think the cheese adds plenty and I use the coarse grind black pepper with a sprinkle (1/4 tsp.) of cayenne pepper!! - 1/18/09
