I finally made this for the first time! If you would like to cut down on some of the sodium from the dried beef, rinse the slices under water for 10-15 seconds, being sure to fan out the slices. I assume the dash of ground pepper goes into the eggs since it does not say in the description, but that is where I put it. It turned out great! Even with 1/3 of the mushrooms ;-)

I made this again this year and rinsed the dried beef again - even soaked it in water as well for a minute or so. Amazing how much of the sodium it cuts out. I shockingly even felt like the finished product could use some salt! Haha. Yummy as always, and again with only one can of mushrooms :-D
