"What is the difference between a muffin and cupcake pan? Is it the size?"

"I've made theses often for my daughter, she loves them. I've made them with bacon, ham and sausage before, sometimes all three. I use refrigerated hash browns instead of frozen.Very good...There also good for freezing and taking out the next morning for a quick breakfast for kids. Thanks for sharing"

"I guess I'm dumber than a box of rocks because in all my years I didn't know there is a difference between a muffin pan and a cupcake pan, I've always thought it was interchangeable.

The recipe sounds delicious and easy to make. I will be trying it."

"These look like they were baked in a MUFFIN tin not a CUPCAKE tin. Big difference. In any event, stop the whining and thank the good Lord you have the means available to you to have this kind of food."

"I use cresent rolls, easier to make a cup and I add more eggs. I vary using diced ham, cooked bacon or crumbled sausage, add chopped red pepper, green onion and a tsp of dijon mustard to egg mixture and milk and save a step by not making gravy. do not overcooke the egg mixture it will finishing cooking in the oven. Yummy breakfast !"
