"I made this with sharp cheddar in place of the Romano cheese, and we liked it. I did add a handful of diced onion, but we felt it really wasn't needed. My one beef is that there was no way this would fit in one 8x8" pan! We ended up preparing an extra one and baking both for 30 minutes. This is a good but easy basic recipe you can do a lot with, according to your preferences. I'll be making it again, for sure."

"I'm sorry, but even with some hot pepper in this dish it was pretty tasteless. I won't be making this one again."

"Delish! I did add Italian turkey sausage, hot sauce & used southwestern egg substitute. The dish had lots of flavor!!! The mini muffin tin seemed a bit small, will try using regular size muffin tin next time. I give it 4 stars and will definitely make again<"

"@jwatsv 30 january...don't give up just yet. Try cooked sausage, bacon or ham cubes next time. Hot sauce added to eggs was the key for me. Also added some Accent seasoning to the egss that went on top. If this is not for you maybe others will find this helpful."

"Forgot to say that I made this in the morning and let it set up in the fridge for 12 hrs before baking. I am sure this helped w/ the flavor meld. As others, squeeze spinich REAL dry. Also drained cottage cheese to eliminate the extra moisture."

"Made this last eve and it was really good. Added 8-12oz of cooked bulk sausage and about a tea of Franks Hot sauce to the beaten eggs. It added just the right amount of zip! Would eliminate the bread crumbs on the bottom of pan, added nothing to this great recipe. Had to cook an extra ten min to tighten it up."

"I combined this recipe with another one called Sausage Egg Bake and altered it to suit what I had on hand & it was fabulous. I didn't bother with bread crumbs. I used only 1pkg of spinach and only 2 cups of cottage cheese. I still used the parmesan but I increased it to 7 eggs. I also added a cup of chopped meat (I had ham, will try sausage next time), a can of undiluted cream of potato soup, a cup of leftover mashed potatoes, 2 chives, finely chopped, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar in the mix and an additional cup sprinkled on top before baking. I cooked it @ 375 for hour because my oven always seems to take a little longer than what recipes call for."

"From statements below. I used stuffing bread cubes. I didn't have enough cottage cheese so I just used an extra egg. Also for those who say the cooking time was for 15 minutes. You need to read it better. It says 15 minute prep time ane 45 cooking time. I will say, make sure that your spinach is drained well. You might even put it on a paper towel and pat it dry, otherwise your cassarole will be to wet when baking."

"Tried this today and it's great. Bake in a 8X9" and it would bake faster in the center. Used crushed croutons instead of bread crumbs."

"Took way more than 15 minutes, plus all the time in the store to find the items, cheese not found. Then, went home to fix it. No time to really thaw, but still ok. 8 x 8 pan ok. Why not 8 x 12 or so for quicker baking time. However, all that my interpretation. Mainly, great ingredient list, but no calorie report. Only if fat free cottage cheese and egg substitute, which I was going to buy, as well as I forgot ff because I was looking at the regular ingredients. So where is the calorie count for the ingredients list? It is quite rich, so I will use a small amount with each following meal. Thanks for an interesting recipe. Review this for yourselves, please."
