    How is the least bit healthy?? Sugar, butter, half and half cream??? You have 15 g of fat and 48 carbs and the cholesterol content is not good. This is a heart attack dish and shouldn't be on a diet recipes site. - 11/29/07

    cutting calories and not taste in this recipe is easy enough - substitute egg whites for the whole eggs; use skim milk; eliminate the half and half; and reduce the sugar/butter amounts on the topping. - 7/6/11
