Used less salt because I prefer less. Puffed up beautifully, and it was delicious! I think I went a bit more on the spinach because I had a bit of extra to use up. This recipe is a good starting point that allows you to individualize it.

Ditch the salt, wayyyy too much it HAD to have been a type-O. Season with salt and pepper to your liking is what i'm sure they meant to say..(haha). Delicious though, and super easy!

HEY MARTHA STEWART PEOPLE DO YOU EVER READ THESE REVIEWS? TOOOOO SALTY. Some people don't check all the comments and there is a huge mistake in the instructions. TOO MUCH SALT. PLEASE CHANGE NOW. I had to eat it anyways since I can't afford to throw out good ingredients. It might be good but who can tell when you can't taste the cheese eggs or spinach? No stars yet!

This was so salty that my husband and I could not eat it. There must be a misprint in this recipe. Very disappointing.

This was really easy to whip up and tasty, but I found the teaspoon of salt the recipe called for was way to salty! I will scale back on the sodium, I think 1/8 tsp would work for my taste.

Not sure why most of my previous comment didn't show up. What I meant to say was that I agree that this was very easy
