Yummy! I didn't add mushrooms since my hubby doesn't like them and I mixed the cheese into the mixture instead of just on top. I also used a spicy turkey sausage so they had more flavor and a bit of a kick. Turned out wonderfully!

First try I just used sausage, egg and cheese (my Sweetie isn't fond of onions or peppers) but these tasted really good just the same. And what a convenient take-along to eat at work! I'm looking forward to trying them again with some additional ingredients.

Very tasty! I used hot & spicy Italian sausage and added fresh spinach. Delicious!
