Reviews for Green Chili Egg Puff
"My recipe for this is called Chili Cheese Bites and I've been making this for 10 years. I use 8 tablespoons butter, melted in the dish in the oven and swirled around to coat the bottom and all sides. I then pour off remaining butter into mixed ingredients. I also mix in two (2) four oz. cans of green chili's as my husband likes it better this way."
"Does this recipe need butter?"
"In appreciation of my employees, i made a big brunch for them. This was one of the recipes I made. There wasn't a morsel left! Everyone loved it. I had leftover jack cheese, chilies & cottage cheese, so I made the recipe again in a 1/2 sz version the next day, but to change it up I added thawed hash brown potatoes and bacon bits. OMG! Super yummy any way you make this dish. Next time I will do a diced ham version and try cooking it in a muffin tin. Love recipes that are so versatile! ?"
