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

"I added some sausage and cut back on cottage cheese and only used 1 12 oz. spinach. I did use paper towel to dry spinach . Cook additional 10 min."

"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<"

"Good but a bit bland, will add onion, try hot sauce and more cheese next time. Nice veggie side dish."

MY REVIEW

"@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."
