Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was so delicious. It was so easy to prepare (the eggs boiled while I made the sauce in the microwave, so it all seemed to go seamlessly). And I love the zesty tone of all the ingredients. I followed the recipe as written, but next time I'll continue to use large eggs but go with just 1 egg per person. It was a great breakfast. Thank you, Mikekey. Made for Susie's World Tour 2018 (Cajun/Creole).

It's a winner, Mikekey! I loved how easily it came together. I cut it down for 2 of us and only used 1 egg per person -it was plenty! made for SWT
