Sounds really good...

But I wonder why the egg substitute? Since we can have regular eggs...

I can't see having brocoli with breakfast, but maybe spinach... I'll let you know...

I've actually made it both ways. The spinich was a little too strong for me so I thought I'd try the broccoli and it was just right. It's all a matter of taste buds, try it both ways and see what ya think. I'm sure they would taste better with real eggs but it would be a lot of eggs to make this recipe. Maybe you could throw in a couple for good measure.

It seems to me like they often use egg substitute.......
I don't use them, but only because they are soooo expensive, and I feed a lot of people.
I have found that 1 large egg usually equals about 1/4 cup........so for this recipe, it would probably be 8-10 eggs......also, I have heard that the best recipes call for eggs by their measure, not number........so I suppose it couldn't hurt to crack them into a measuring cup.
