  1. Good for potluck brunch.
  2. I've been trying to go vegetarian, much to my meat-loving husband's dismay. I made these for dinner the other night and he was delighted. "Keep that recipe!" he told me. The only thing I might suggest is using more spinach and less eggs; it was a smidge too chewy for me. And of course more - Read more ...
  3. Very bland. The salsa is necessary. It smelled great before I put it in the oven but then was OK to eat. Maybe a stronger flavoured cheese would help. Husband didn't care for it and he loves spinach.
  4. a smashing hit
  5. I think I used too much spinach in this one (had to estimate with fresh!) but despite the lumpy texture, they turned out great! I had no lemon pepper but grated a bit of lemon rind into the mix and forgot to add mustard but they were still scrumptious!
  6. I made this in a baking pan instead of muffin cups and it was great. I cooked it at the suggested temp for about 40 minutes until set.
  7. I absolutely love how these turned out! I surprised my mom with breakfast with these (and she is a picky eater) and loved them. Next time I will use less cumin because I thought it was kind of overpowing. Also, I used plain nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream and lowfat cheese and ricotta. Great!
  8. This is a great recipe. Even my husband who doesn't care for eggs loved it. I forgot to buy ricotta but used cottage cheese instead. I used jumbo size muffin tins. For a party I'm going to this weekend I'll use mini muffin tins. Can't wait to try them again.
