"My father loves to entertain, and these butter egg delights are one of his favorite items to serve at brunch," informs Amy. The leftovers are perfect to reheat in the microwave on busy mornings, so Dad always stashes a few aside for me to take home once the party is over."

Great basic recipe that you can add to and personalize to your on preference. I added bacon and red bell peppers to mine. I did cut it in half as wanted to try them out before investing that many eggs - but next time I'll make the full recipe so I can have more in the freezer for those busy days when I've no time to make breakfast. This would be an easy recipe to change in so many ways to keep it from getting boring. Thanks for posting.

People -- you need to try these!!! They are AWESOME!!!! I can't believe this recipe has been on Zaar for all these years and has not been reviewed. I made these exactly as written except I did finely dice up some ham to add. I used my silicone muffin pans and these fell right out. I have them in the freezer now and plan to pull them out as needed for a quick breakfast. I'm so excited to have found this recipe. I might try adding a small can of diced green chilies to it the next time. It deserves more than 5 stars!

These are really good, I changed ingredients to make 1 dozen. I added diced ham and sauteed them. I could not find my monterey jack cheese quickly so I used Sharp Cheedar. Yummy
