I couldn't get them out of the tin. I waited a few minutes more than it said in the recipe. If it's best to leave them longer so they come out easily, it should not say to only wait 5 minutes. I made them for a work brunch so, the aesthetics matter. The taste is good. I added parsley and unsalted garlic powder. I am just bummed about the brown edges. Not like the picture.

They came out perfect! I added some additional seasoning but otherwise I followed it exactly. I was pleasantly surprised that the recipe was exactly 12 full muffin spots. I had no problems getting them out like some otherwise have. I just made sure they were cooled enough and they came right out.

Excellent! Used cupcake liners, added Dijon mustard and thyme. Will make again.

I love the idea of making up a bunch and freezing! #genius I made this my own by adding frozen kale on hand and dried dill.

So YUMMY and very easy to make. Hasn’t anybody thought about using paper muffin cups as liners in your muffin pan? Lol!

Delicious! I used a mexican blend of cheese because that's what I had. I sprayed my muffin pan really well after reading the reviews, which helped with the cleanup. I will definitely make this again. Easy and healthy breakfast. I'm going to try it with sweet potatoes next time.

Love this recipe. I made it according to the recipe and it was awesome! Now I use the measurements to use whatever I have on hand. Broccoli, sausage, raw onions, bacon, and lots of different cheeses. It always fills 12 muffin tins and comes out great. I use a non-stick muffin pan and I lightly spray as well. Works like a charm! They are great to have on hand and they freeze so well. I make a simple aioli with mayo, ketchup and sriracha to give it a nice kick. One of my favorite things to eat!

It was great! Made a few changes to mine: Used a mix of regular cheddar and havarti instead of smoked, put chunks of walnut into it (I highly recommend doing this as it gave a lovely texture and flavor), sprinkled crushed flax seed on top, didn't put any spinach (I was out), and put it in for 20 min on convect roast. Definitely will be making again, younger sister loved it and was (although somewhat time consuming) a great breakfast with an easy cleanup. I just suggest to heavily grease your muffin tins with non stick pan spray, it made getting them out very easy an cleanup was almost non existent.
