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.

Delicious! Instead of the muffin tin pan, I used a 9 inch deep dish Pyrex pie pan. I needed to bake it for about 10 min. longer, and increased the temp. to 350 (after the 25 min.) and it turned out perfect. My husband liked it, and we ate it for dinnner with some salad and soup. I froze the leftovers. Will definitely make again!

Delicious. I used a 9x12 pan since I didn't want to deal with the clean up issue. Used onions, mushrooms, red pepper, sweet potato, bacon, spicy cheddar. Threw a little extra shredded cheese on top. Even the kids ate it!

This was tasty, if a little bland. I should have anticipated that and added some cayenne or other seasoning. But I agree with LilyCooks. Cleanup was terrible. I like the idea of the muffin size but it's not worth the cleanup.

This recipe would be great to make if you want to torture whoever has dish duty. Sure, the mini quiches were good, but they weren't great. But it made a colossal mess! I prepared it as directed and everything stuck-- it took me several soaks and over an hour to clean the muffin pan. I may never make it again but if I do, I won't make this as directed. Next time I will make it in a pie pan and cut it. Also, you can't taste the smoked cheddar so no need to splurge on that, just use regular cheddar.
