I think it's worth playing with these because they make such a great quick breakfast, especially paired with the mini quiches also in this issue.


I think these have the potential to be Awesome! They were a little bland. However, recipes can always be adjusted. I think next time I will saute my bacon, onion, and bell peppers in the olive oil and butter first. I will also add some fresh garlic and do half the cheese in pepper jack. I think this will make them even better!!

* cut up really, really small for a better flavor infusion

We made this for Christmas brunch. They were great reheated (made them one day ahead). Wonderful with cream cheese! We will definitely make them again.
