    Kim D.'s Note:

    I've often put shredded cooked chicken in my migas or breaksfast tacos, so when I started the South Beach Diet I came up with this recipe. The egg cups can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, then heated just before serving. I like mine topped with Cholula hot sauce!

      You know there are just some recipes that you want to smack your head and say "Why didn't I think of that?" Really liked this recipe, however I did make some changes. 1.Used Monterey Pepper jack cheese instead of plain Monterey jack cheese. 2. Used season salt, because mine has garlic in it. 3. Not a huge fan of chicken for breakfast so I did some with chunks of ham and some with chunks of beef breakfast patties (similar to sausage patties but made with beef). This will make some quick breakfasts for my hubby and me for the upcoming week. I will come back and edit the review if they don't hold up well in the refrigerator, but I doubt that will be the case. Thanks Kim D for sharing.

      I'm so excited to find this recipe. A bunch of us are meeting for my daughter's 30th birthday this week-end and I think I'll make some of these and have ready for an easy, tasty breakfast. Thanks for sharing. I'll rate after the party week-end. BTW has anyone ever tried freezing these?
