    I don't like eggs (really!) but I do like sour cream and onion, so I decided to give this a whirl. I subtracted one egg and added a little extra sour cream (to reduce the eggy-ness) and enjoyed every single bite. A stand out recipe, one I am sure I will make again. And such an easy lunch to make. Thank you!

    Tastes great! Legit tastes like the pringles, lol. I saw the room temp sour cream mention and squinted a bit, for an easy breakfast I don't really want to have to plan ahead. Used sour cream from the fridge, no apparent downside. Also made some bacon beforehand and used the grease to fry the egg, do recommend.
