Lovely recipe. I would probably use ham or bacon alternately, as well. So convenient. I don't understand, when folks say, they won't or might not try the recipe again, just because it needs more spice. Can a person not pick up the cayenne or red pepper flakes & put some in? That makes no sense to me. Read More

This was not a hit with my family. My boyfriend thought it could use more seasoning. Tried it with and without sausage. Definetley recommend sausage to give it more flavor. Don't think I will make this again. Read More

WOW! These are delicious! I used Jimmy Dean's Sausage Skillet package which has peppers, potatoes, onions, and sausage in it-found in the freezer section. Cook the skillet contents first before adding it to the eggs and only use a little more than half of the package. Also, I figured there would be enough seasoning in that that I wouldn't have to add the garlic powder,black pepper, and salt, but I was wrong. If You use the Skillet package, You should add the garlic powder and pepper, but no salt. Anyways, these are amazing if You follow the recipe exactly too! Who would have thought to bake eggs in cupcake liners. This recipe is a keeper! :) Read More

I added in one large minced fresh red pepper and a little Frank's Hot Sauce. This was quick, easy and filling. I served these with homemade home fries and whole wheat toast. The great thing about recipes like this is they are great with any kind of meat you have on hand or any kind of vegetable you want to throw in. Read More

I make 3 meals a day for a disabled person and this recipe has been a huge hit! After months of frozen pancakes and waffles this egg-muffin was met with rave reviews!! Since the meals are made 8 hours ahead reheating was a major concern. This recipe works very well for making ahead and reheating in the microwave. If you have a 700W micro reheat for 1 minute 30 seconds and let rest 30 seconds before eating. If you have a 1100/1200W micro reheat for 1 minute 10 seconds and let rest 30 seconds before eating. If at all possible reheat in a dish covered with waxed paper so that steam builds up. Try "HOT" flavor sausage for a change also mix it up with different additions. I've added chopped sweet red pepper, cubed fresh bread, several different types of chees (Swiss, Gruyere, Fontina, manchego). Winter squash puree (butternut) and asparagus are also great additions!!

This is a great recipe and can be altered for any taste. You can add a 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup mayo so they puff up. Very easy and can be kept in the fridge for days and re-heated as needed. Great for kids in the morning, as they can microwave them on the way out the door and eat them on the bus. Super mom time saver!!! Read More

My family loved these. I did use 1lb of pork sausage instead of half. Read More

This could obviously be made a lot faster and with a lot less fuss if just simply scrambled on the stovetop - but then you'd totally lose that "these are so darned cute" effect! I made these in silicone cupcake liners sprayed with Pam and just lined them up on a cookie sheet, using a soup ladle to fill them. I used bacon rather than sausage, fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder and 1/4 c. finely chopped red pepper rather than green (the green pepper is in the directions but not in the ingredients list!), which gave these such nice color. There's a lot of room for creativity and versatility in terms of ingredients - ham, sausage, crab meat, salmon, different cheeses or vegetables, herbs - the possibilities are really limitless. They're delicious, although how could they not be? Cute and colorful too - they rise up puffy and tall and get a nice, golden sheen to them. I don't know that I'd bother with these little guys for a whole bunch of people because it would just be too putzy, but for just Hubs and me it was a special little treat on the plate this morning!

I was so happy to come across this recipe.   I'm studying for the Bar and I just can't take time every morning to make breakfast.   The freeze great and you can pop them in the microwave, in their frozen state,  and heat them at 50% for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.   Boom. I made these with the ingredients I had on hand and I don't think I'll do it differently next time.   I was out of cheddar cheese so I used pepper jack instead, and I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder.   I also chopped up precooked Jimmy Dean link sausage - great time saver.  I also threw in a dusting of red pepper flakes, and a splash of cream to make sure they'd be fluffy.  They were.   They weren't quite done at 25 minutes so I baked them for an extra 5 minutes.  Everyone loves them.  And mornings are much easier.

It's scrambled eggs in a cute shape and you don't have to stand over the stove. Don't use cupcake liners, grease even a non stick muffin pan, use any and all ingredients you like in an omelet or quiche, make sure to season accordingly, cook any protein before adding to eggs, add 1/4 cup each mayo and water to get a fluffy rise, cool before putting in a zip lock in fridge, freeze them and heat in micro at 30-60 seconds each. I've summarized the reviews. You're welcome. Yes, I made them. Jalapeños, swiss, tomatoes, and cooked Applewood smoked bacon. Read More
