I will warn you that this recipe is high in fat. The eggs, combined with cheese, make for a large percentage of the calories coming from fat. I made this with 1% milk and regular cheddar cheese. Here are some suggestions for varying the recipe, including a way to cut down on fat and calories. Enjoy!
- Add very small pieces of cauliflower to the mix, cooking with the onions and celery.
- Add small chunks of ham or bacon. Cook meat first before adding to the mixture.
- Change the cheese to low-fat cheese and decrease the cheese. To really save fat calories, omit the cheese altogether.
