"Made it exactly according to recipe 1st time but seemed to be missing something. 2nd time around I included nearly one pound of bacon and some onion flakes and it was perfect."

"great recipe, but a little bit too sweet for breakfast. Perhaps some lemon juice would be a good idea, or what else could be done to cut the sweetness?"

"My husband and I LOVED this. The flavor was wonderful. I'll certainly make it again. Next time I'll make the turnovers ahead so that I only have to assemble and bake."
