    Can also add milk (excellent use for SOUR milk!) & can lower/omit amount of cheddar &/eggs. Also can make this in microwave, about 10-15 min (depending on alts). Can mix it all* in a souffle pan/something with VERY high sides, at least twice as high as mix.
    *Only'nuke'wheat germ mix in last few min

    Made this as the recipe says and it was a bit dry. I will try some other things to moisten it up next time. The flavor is good. - 7/13/09
