No Heinz in my house. This applesauce and stevia sweetened recipe tastes fresh and turns ketchup from sugar-laden red stuff into an egg enhancing vegetable topping! Not that I am a breakfast expert or anything ( ok, I am), but so far it is about 8 to 1 AGAINST ketchup on eggs; for what it's worth. There are more takers when homemade is at hand, but still.
