I used this recipe last night for an experiment - I'm trying to make a Ham and Cheese Pye similar to one I ate in Weston MO. at the American Bowman Restaurant. This was good and my DH said I could make this again. I did add 1/2 C. half and half to the 2 beaten eggs and 2 1/2 C. shredded cheese=1 C. sharp cheddar 1 C. Mont. Jack and 1/2C. Velveeta. This is a hearty tasty filling pie and easy to make. Though I am still searching for a recipe for Ham and Cheese Pye. Read More

It came out beautifully from the oven. It was just right neither too dry nor wet. I put some onion inside as well. Tasted great. Everybody liked it in the family, even the most grumpy one over food. I fried the ham a bit before filling the pie. That removes excess liquids. Read More

These are pretty good and you can't beat how quick and easy they are. Mine was a little watery from the ham but otherwise had a great flavor. It'd be a nice quick breakfast treat. I think it'd be great with a cornbread crust too. Or with other fillings. Read More

I used 4 eggs and added diced onions and asparagus to give more it veggies and nutritional content! Delicious! Better then when mom made it growing up. I'm a seasoning girl so I was nervous there was no additional spices but it doesn't need it. Easy meal to cook after you have leftover ham ( Easter and Christmas especially!) Read More

Great dinner and if there is any leftovers an imaging breakfast reheat. I used 4 eggs instead of 2 to make it a bit more moist and keep the crust from drying out! Read More

I was apprehensive that their were no spices but decided to try as is. This was GREAT the family loved it! My husband did add tabasco to his portion and said that made it even better. Very easy to prepare and I just added green beans as a side as I made this for dinner very filling Read More
