Hash browns make a fabulous crust for these individual egg quiches. They look like you fussed, but are actually easy to make. They've been a hit at holiday brunches and other special occasions.—Kate Meyer, Brentwood, Tennessee

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2014

I made these for my granddaughter and we both agreed that they made a great breakfast.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 29, 2013

I loved this recipe. I have one and two year old little boys, and not only did they enjoy them, but they were easy for them to eat with their little hands. The next time I make them, I plan to add spinach and I may substitute the Swiss cheese for Feta. I think they'd be great at a bridal brunch.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2013

I made these for a Mother's Day Brunch that I hosted at my house. Delicious! Not a single leftover! My husband wants me to make them again just to have on hand for a quick breakfast. At only 101 calories per serving, they seem like a great healthy breakfast option. I'm anxious to see how they reheat.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2012

I served these at a tea party I host every year for five close friends, and it was a hit. I do not enjoy cooking nor do I consider myself handy in the kitchen, but the recipe sounded simple and tasty, so I gave it a try. I'm so glad I did. All my guests thoroughly enjoyed the dish, each had seconds, and all of them wanted the recipe. Can't wait to make it again!
