Another juicy tidbit from my grandmother, Margaret Whitehead. I get so many good ones from them, I just have to share.

This looks great, but to double check... 2 C whipping cream seems like a lot for only 4 eggs?

I thought that too. I checked my grandmother's recipe and it's correct. I assumed that it was to compensate for the cheese component as well. If you make it, let me know how it turns out. Thanks
