Terrific recipe! Made a double batch for a cast party last weekend; everyone raved, many asked for the recipe. Served with homemade pita chips (some sprinkled with Jordanian za'atar, the others sprinkled with my pumpkin seed dukkah). A keeper! ;o) P.S. The smidgen of leftovers made the perfect filling for an omelet. So, so delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
