That seemed like a lot of salt, so I cut it down to 1 teaspoon. That's all you need. Do it like that and this recipe is great.

I thought that a bit much on the salt so I cut that back to 1 tsp. I loved the results. Maybe you should adjust the salt in your recipe.

I used teaspoon salt, but this would be good with your favorite salt-free seasoning (Mrs. Dash/ Maurer's Northwest Essence) in place of the salt and pepper. This is a great recipe for Sunday brunch or other family gatherings.

Hi. I reduced the salt to a teaspoon and we thought this was really good. I think that might be a misprint that Mr. Breakfast should change

Waaaaay too much salt. It really overpowered the dish and pretty much ruined it.

Experienced cooks will recognize the first part of the recipe as a roux, inexperienced people will make the mistake of adding the milk too fast, and so the directions here could be clearer. Overall however this is a good recipe and a practical way of serving a large breakfast group.
