My husband and I LOVE breakfast and brunch food. We're both pretty carb intolerant, so protein, whole grains, complex carbs and lots of fruits and vegetables are what you will find the most of in the kitchen and on our table. So this is the perfect morning meal. This can easily be made into a low calorie meal, too - one that you will make over and over again! Just use eggs substitute, fat-free half and half and low-fat cheese. —vivisue

Is the milk in the list a substitute for the cream in the instructions, or is it a preference?

The milk was just what I had on hand. I would have used cream, had I had any. :D Enjoy!

What temp does the oven need to be?

Thanks! I don't think you will find there has been any compromise. They make great snacks, too!
