1. Eggs: You can use 4 Egg whites or 2 Whole Eggs instead of using this combo.
2. Cheese: You can choose any kind of Cheese you like.Just make sure to add cheeses that would melt.
3. Water: Its not really necessary to add water to this recipe. You can instead use even full fat milk. The addition of milk results in a creamier texture while water provides more fluffiness.
