Reviews for Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups
"Did this for Mother's Day breakfast...the whole family loved it!"
"I added spinach and it was so good!"
"My family can't get enough of these. I fill the cups with each family members favorite ingredients so everybody gets exactly what they like, still very easy. Making them again tonight for breakfast in the morning."
"I made this with 97% fat free ham slices and it came out great."
"I haven't made this yet, but can't wait. I will add some hash browns on the bottom of the cup to use as a crust."
"Made these for Mom for her Birthday. Very easy to make and taste awesome! I made as written but added some sauteed green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Mom was thrilled! Thank you for sharing."
"I am not great on turkey bacon but would fix this again."
"The precoooked bacon strips are great for this. I used a mini muffin pan to make a bunch of bite-sized cups for a brunch potluck."
"I have made this with a slice of ham covering bottom and sides of muffin cup. Good."
"I made these on Mother's Day for my family and everyone loved them. None of us like egg bakes or quiche, so I thought I'd try this out. I mixed the cheese in the egg mixture before filling the nests. Even my brother-in-law, who was griping about the turkey bacon while I was preparing them, stopped eating to tell me how good they were. Great easy recipe."
"I was a little afraid that I wouldn't be good at folding the bacon. I have never been great at origami. But, this recipe was very good and extremely tasty. I did add a little garlic to the egg mixture."
"This is an amazing on-the-go recipe. I make these to take to work for a healthy breakfast or on the road. I didn't like the turkey bacon -- even "low sodium" turkey bacon made these unbelievably salty. I also recommended mixing the cheese in with the egg as well as adding some diced onion. Enjoy!"
