To make things easy, about half the recipe as stated. I don't know exactly how much dried cream cheese I should have used, 95ml or 2Tbsp cream cheese and I don't know what spices to reduce, so I used what I thought was best on a hand-pressed biscuit/crumb, later that same morning, so I could lift the weight off my baked beans and put them in the freezer to be gone by the time I got around to reviewing this recipe. If I made my biscuit shells smaller, it compressed them more tightly together, resulting in a texture issue when climbing down, so I stopped doing that and started weighing the eggs, only doing it after scraping the top of my working meal.
This is an excellent alternative to soup that you would normally use in place of broth - canned beans. Instead of water, I put 1/2 cup of whole tomatoes, enough to fill 8-10 cans. Then I must add salt and pepper, because I don't like over-populated cans. Still, YUM! Will make this often.
