I used 3 eggs, halfnhalf instead of cream, and added some garlic and chopped green onions for extra flavor. My family loved it. Very quick to prepare (20 min.) A keeper.

Quick and easy to make, restaurant quality, as advertised. Everything was perfect, a little bland but overall texture, feel and taste was great.
