What a delicious surprise! I used 2 full eggs instead of 4 egg whites. I also mixed in some diced red peppers with the eggs and topped with freshed diced tomato instead of salsa. I really enjoyed it and it was very filling. Read More

The strangest texture ever...could it be because I used whole eggs rather than egg whites? I doubt it. Seems like a lot of you had the same problem. However, the flavor would have been pretty awesome if it weren't for the mushy texture! Read More

MMMMMMM good yummy lunch. I prefer to use the egg white in a carton as it tastes much like regular eggs. Other than that and adding a little green onion I loved it! Thanks Camille! Read More

My changes seem greater considering the simplicity of the recipe but I wanted to review it anyway. I used my small skillet and egg beaters simply poured in the egg added some leftover diced green pepper and covered-no scrambling. When it was cooked through I used the same burner to warm the tostada for a couple of seconds per side. I then put the perfectly-sized egg on the tostada and topped with the cheese(sharp cheddar) and a little green onion. I didn't have any salsa so used several dashes of chipotle hot sauce(tobasco) on top and this was very good. I liked the crunch of the shell. It was a nice change from breakfast burritos. Read More

This had excellent flavor. Too bad the texture was mushy. I didn't like the texture at all and couldn't get over the mush factor. Next time I will just cook the eggs and add the salsa after they are done. I used store brand medium salsa. Read More

Liked this a bunch. So simple to prepare. From the time that I decided to make this to taking the first bite was no more than five minutes. Made another one for my son who loves breakfast burritos. He didn't actually love it but I got him to eat it anyway. Made his with the whole egg instead of just the white not sure which one I liked better. Reduced recipe to two eggs and eyeballed the amounts of cheese salsa etc. Easily could have made two tortillas with it. Also used regular flour tortillas instead of whole wheat. Read More

The eggs cooked really weird and they almost looked like baby food so next time I would leave the cheese and salsa out of the beaten eggs and just add them ontop. Very easy would be great with some green onion on top! Read More
