Awesome! Added 1 clove shredded garlic sautéed. Blanched 3 asparagus spears cut on the bias and added to mixture. Finished the last 5 minutes with a small amount of shredded Parmigiano Reggiano.

Great taste and easy to make. Subed coconut milk for half and half and used goat cheese. Turned out very nice. A great to go breakfast. Thank you for the recipe..

Healthy, great flavor, good reheated, great consistency. My big complaint is that they were very hard to get out of the muffin tins and then to clean the pan. On my second attempt, I greased the cups very well and had the same problem. Maybe muffin wrappers are necessary.

Awesome! What a great way to use up the shredded zucchini in my freezer from the Summer's bounty! My family are not huge zucchini lovers in general, but this is one of those recipes where you get the nutrients from the zucchini without really even noticing it's in the dish- which is great. Flavorful and wonderful texture. I served as a side dish for dinner, but I can definitely see how it would be easy to make these work for breakfast too by playing with the mix-ins a little!

I made these in a mini cupcake pan and they were a nice appetizer. Need a little bit more of some different cheese. Yummy and Healthy!

Great flavor with the scallions, but they need some bulking up. Mushrooms are a perfect addition! I also usually add more cheese and use milk in place of Half and Half.
