"I really liked this recipe! I did, however, think the onion was too strong-and I used less than it called for. Next time I'd either use a little green onion or just eliminate it. Still a keeper recipe though!"

"I make this recipe on a regular basis as my husbund loves them!! I do stir all the bacon in and usually add a little extra cheese. I also use onion powder cause we aren't big onion eaters. Definitely my hubby's favorite recipe!"

"I made this for a ladies' brunch and it was excellent! I used bacon bits and mixed them all into the batter, based on another reviewer's comments. So yummy!"

"These are very buttery and good. I used turkey bacon and they still tasted very savory. The bacon that you sprinkle on the top before baking doesn't really stay on so next time I might press it in or just mix all the bacon in rather than dividing it. Really a great recipe!"
