    Made this over the weekend and it was a hit. It was so easy to make and delicious. I followed the recipe, I used green onions instead and added asparagus.

    i do not have kefir on me now. Could I use greek yogurt and thin it out with milk or water? If not, I’ll bake when I have kefir on hand. Thank you. :-)

    There is no amount for the nutmeg on this recipes for the breakfast salmon egg bake. We just added a little but the receipt has only to add nutmeg not how much. ??
