“Thank you for posting such an outstanding recipe! The second I saw how pretty it looked, I needed to make it! I made it for lunch that very day. The mixture of favors was especially satisfying.
I did should bake the egg a couple of minutes longer. Next time I simply may upload a poached egg. Instead of the pronounced cheese, I grated a wholesome component of elderly cheddar. On top, I sprinkled sautéed diced bacon. Yum! Very smart for a different occasion.”  ~ June
