Looks delightful, Thanksgiving is on Monday, October 13th, so this is an easy recipe for a long weekend.

Sara S mentioned that eggs can 'carry various diseases.' If one obtains eggs from non-factory farmed sources there are few threats, but most of the population have eaten eggs at one time or another and the majority of humanity has not died in droves as of yet. Looking forward to all of the ingredients, especially the maple syrup and pumpkin and yes, delicious farm fresh eggs.

There are vegan thickening agents available. Eggs can carry all sorts of diseases, given the conditions in factory farming facilities.
