  1. I used half bacon/half mild Italian sausage, added asparagus, mushrooms, 6 cloves of garlic, a sprinkle of fresh nutmeg and doubled the heavy cream, cheese and egg yolk. My husband literally licked his plate and my toddlers loved it too. Thanks for such a delicious, easy recipe! Absolutely going into the rotation.
