Helpful Tips!

Check your eggs before you buy them and avoid cracked or dirty eggs. To keep food safe, always cook eggs until they are set, not runny. It’s best to refrigerate your eggs in the carton they came in – they’ll stay fresh longer that way.

Using cheese made from 2% milk instead of whole milk lowers the fat in this recipe, and most people don’t taste any difference.
