Tasty but a bit bland. It either needs more herbs or spices or more cheese in the egg mixture. It *really* sucks up chard, though, so don't be afraid to use a whole bunch from the store. It cooks down a lot. I used rainbow chard and hot italian turkey sausage, and subbed a poblano pepper for the mushrooms. I chopped up the chard stems and threw them in too and that was fine. Because it tasted bland, we added Cholula hot sauce to serve. I think using table salt instead of kosher salt might help too by helping it dissolve and get distributed easier. Good base recipe, but next time I will either add herbes de provence or Italian seasoning or double the cheese.
