My mother used to make these all the time for my family, so I'm just carrying on the tradition. They're quick to put together, and while they're in the oven I go get ready for the day. My children loved them, even when they were toddlers. —Lisa Walder, Urbana, Illinois

"Its a quick and easy meal for our family with sliced ham, instead of the beef."

"Haven't tried this version, but make mine w/sweet sliced ham, salso, eggs and cheese-sometimes scramble the egg sometimes use it whole. You can vary the fillings and they are all good!"

"Wow easy to make! It's like poached eggs in the oven. Very tasty, serve with toast, fruit and voila'... breakfast in a dash. If you like soft poached leave in oven for about 15-20 minutes, 25 minutes for hard poached. I could see skipping the cheese and making a hollandaise sauce to put over before serving."

"Made this Christmas morning for an easy breakfast. Used thin ham slices and pepperjack cheese slices. They were easy, clean up was simple and everyone liked them! Will definitely make these again!"
