Excellent casserole recipe! I used it to make individual casserole cups with my cupcake pans. Did nothing to the recipe, except added about 3/4 lb pork breakfast sausage, cooked and drained, to the batter. Then baked 350 degrees for about 20 minutes in well-greased cupcake pan. For added fun, I used corn tortilla pieces as a "crust" on some in the pan, before pouring in egg mixture. Made it easier to get them out for sure! I also tried minis - baked for about 12 minutes in mini-muffin pan. Thanks!! Very versatile and tasty recipe.

AMAZING! It's a keeper and will be made often. Tonight was Breakfast fro dinner by request. YUM! I used pepper-jack cheese, Rotel tomatoes (drained well) in place of tomato, green chilies and pepper sauce & cilantro. It was perfect! Bake time was spot on. I halved the recipe & baked in a 8x8. Thanks Keen5!
