  1. WOW, what a great dish!!!! So easy, so quick and best of all soooooo yummy, too! :) I luved the heat from the jalapenos paired with the mellow cheese and eggs. A great combination! Ill try adding in some chopped bell pepper or beans next time Im making this. I cant wait, there are so many possibilities with this! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing an awesome keeper with us, weekend cooker! Made and reviewed for PRMR May 2010.
  2. Holy Jalapeno Batman! This is definitely spicy but so good! I used a 12 oz. jar of jalapenos and added some granulated garlic, onion powder and black pepper to the eggs. There are so many possibilities of add-ins and using different cheese. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing, weekend cooker. ***Made for PRMR***
  3. YUM!! I was a little skeptical, but this was so easy and so so yummy! I used fresh jalapenos (3 good sized ones). I also used a little mozzarella cheese along with the cheddar cheese since I did not have enough cheddar. This will be so good for breakfast on the go.
  4. How can this be so good and so easy! I halved the recipe and just eyeballed the cheese. We loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  5. I made this (scrambled) in 3 minutes using the microwave. Wow! I have heard of folks putting tabasco sauce on eggs, but this quiche is a killer! Good flavor, but next time I will add some seasonings as it was kinda bland. Maybe some salt/pepper/garlic powder and some bacon and onions. Something to spice it up. Made for a nice breakfast treat. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
