My home's in the country, right next door to my sister and brother-in-law's. They and their two children all enjoy this dish each time I serve it as a special evening meal—although it can also be made for breakfast or lunch. —Susan Buttel, Plattsburgh, New York

"We made this with homemade maple syrup and homemade bread. The bread didn't flatten very well because it was a bit dry and stale, but we just covered it with the syrup and then broke it up in the muffin tin. It turned out great! My kids want this again!"

"I made it this morning. .u can have hard or soft yolks bepending on the time in oven. They popped out perfect. And so easy. Loved it!"

"This looks like a nice ' all in one ' breakfast, but I don't think maple syrup would go with a savoury dish., so I'm going to spread some coconut oil on the bread instead. As I don't eat meat I think I'll put some onions, mushrooms and spinach in, like a sort of mini quiche. It's a good idea for brunch with HP sauce."

"I made this recipe for my husband and I this morning and we liked it. I used rye bread and a standard size muffin pan. It took about 30 minutes for my eggs to set, not the recommended 18-20 minutes. Earlier in the week, I helped with this recipe at a TOH Cooking School Show. The ovens, which were borrowed from a local store, were extremely slow/low cooking in this dish and the other dishes that were demonstrated. This recipe took 40 minutes to cook the eggs until set - which made me a little nervous while on stage. I guess that shows that all ovens cook differently. The Show Chef, Char Morse, demonstrated to the audience that the eggs for this dish could be SCRAMBLED also, which is a good option."
