Review This Recipe
Interesting twist on old favorite!
Very good! I didn't have evaporated milk so had to use a regular milk (used a little less) but they still turned out okay. They'd probably be more fluffy with evaporated. I look forward to trying the leftovers in the next few days for my quick breakfasts!
