Reviews for Green Chili Egg Puff
"Giving this one star just because there is a mis-print. The Monterey Jack cheese shows "4 cups (16 oz)". Where I come from, 4 cups is 32 oz. Didn't notice until after I dumped 4 cups of cheese in the mixture. Almost made a gooey cheese ball instead of eggs. I had to double the recipe since I'm sure they meant 2 cups. It came out ok, but only because I had 20 eggs on hand. PLEASE CORRECT"
"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! ?"
"this is a delicious southern style dish. tho it may not be, it rememds me of it. it is delicious EAT UP;)"
"Sprinkle a can of French fried onion rings on top before you bake. Delish."
"Easy and delicious! I often bring this to breakfast potlucks and it's always a hit."
"Excellent brunch or pot luck!"
"I have to admit: this was pretty amazing. However, I would make the following two changes:1) The fat content is extremely high on this puff and there are easy ways to tone it down. Buy lower milkfat cottage cheese and lower milkfat monterey cheese. This also significantly lowers the calorie count, while not effecting the protein count (which is one of the reasons I love this recipe.)2) I didn't taste the green chilis at all and I am NOT a fan of spicy food. I used a 4.5 oz can and next time will use closer to 6 oz.Sidenote: This puff tastes amazing with salsa on top. :)"
"This is so good that my "picky eater" granddaughter requests it often!"
