"WHAT A GREAT EASY breakfast TREAT! i JUST USED BIGGER MUFFIN TINS AND MADE 6, INCREASED THE CHEESE, SUBSTITUTED RED PEPPER FOR GREEN PEPPER (DO NOT LIKE) AND USED ALITTLE CHIVE CREAM CHEESE TO REGULAR CREAM CHEESE. PERFECT!!!AM GOING TO FREEZE SOME , DEFROST WHEN READY TO SERVE AND JUST REHEAT FOR WHEN MY SON IS VISITING FROM OUT OF TOWN. AM NOT A MORNING PERSON AND THIS IS IDEAL FOR ME! ps I ALSO MADE IT AHEAD OF TIME AND PUT IN REFRIG OVERNITE SO I WAS READY TO GO THE NEXT MORNING!"
"Yummy. I didn't have any green pepper, and can't wait to explore this recipe more. I also used a bit more cream cheese than the initial recipe, and put a chunk of colby. This will be great to play with for brunch."
"Mmmm these turned out wonderful!! Thank you for sharing!! Fast and delicious!"
"Very tasty and good. They all went in one sitting. I ligtened up the whole recipe and got the fat down to 10.8g per tart. I used light cream cheese, 1% milk, 1 whole egg, 3 tbsp. egg whites, 1/4 c. of reduced 2% mexican cheese, red pepper (just what I had) reduced fat crescents and 5 tbsp. of real bacon bits. Couldn't tell they were lower in fat, just delicious."
"had my friend over for bkfast and made this recipe and just loved it,forgot to get the cream cheese and i had a whipped cream cheese with spinach and artichoke and worked out just great.we decided that this dish would be good for camping cause u could make ahead and when you eat them you pick up and go."
"LOVE IT! This was a simple quiche to make and everyone LOVES IT! I used mini muffin pans and it made about 2 1/2 dozen mini quiche's. I also made it as a sausage quiche. M'm! M'm! Good!"
"I have made them twice and barely have any leftovers!"
"Absolutely love this recipe. Have made it dozens of times over the past 8 years including many Brunches and Easter celebrations. Great to prepare the night before and then just pop in the oven the next morning."
"Absolutely love this recipe! I have used it over and over to serve to family and friends for breakfast or brunch. I've been asked to share it several times."
"This was VERY good. I made mine with sausage instead of bacon. I will try it with bacon next time!"
"These were good. I left out the onion and green pepper and put in finely chopped green onion instead. I also divided the crescents into thirds and used mini muffin pans to make smaller appetizers. Worked well."
"Fabulous and very attractive for a special brunch!"
"I first used this for Sunday School breakfast.Such a hit, I have used many times. My husband loves it. I am going to try this with mini phyllo shells."
"These tarts are easy to make and taste delicious. They are a hit with family and friends and get made very often, as they vanish very very fast. A keeper, for sure."
"19g of fat for a single tart? How is that heart healthy?"
"These are the best-a great appetizer. Everyone wanted the recipe!"
"Our family really like these. We make them with sausage too. They also reheat well in the microwave so you can make them up the night before for a quick easy breakfast in the morning."
