These bite-size quiches are loaded with sausage and cheese, plus their crescent roll base makes preparation a breeze. Serve the cute "muffinettes" at any brunch or potluck gathering. —Jan Mead, Milford, Connecticut

    "I don't think the calorie count on these could be correct. Even doubling it for using a bigger muffin cup."

    "This recipe is tasty. But though it is good, I didn't really think it was worth the extra effort it took to prepare the separate quiches. I'll stick with Bacon Swiss Squares."

    "Made in regular muffins tins and got a batch of 16 when I used two cans of crescent dough. I substituted an Italian mix of cheese in the place of Swiss. So good! Will make again!"

    "These were definitely a hit at the brunch baby shower today! I could only get around 30 out of the can of crescent rolls which meant I had filling left over. No worries saved the excess filling for us to make a few more for a quick breakfast."

    "Another hit for Christmas breakfast, made ahead then froze and taken out of the freezer first thing in the morning and placed in an oven on low, made in regular muffins tins, yum yum, I made it with ricotta."

    "I made these for a potluck at work and doubled the recipe. The only change I made was to use ricotta cheese instead of the cottage. Everyone loved them. One word of warning though, since I made so many I had to use both oven racks and unfortunately did not watch them close enough. I ended up burning the entire lower rack, which was not even on the lowest notch. Lesson learned!"

    "Sometimes these review things won't let you post without clicking on the stars to rate...this one says "add rating in order to submit". I notice some of you have posted without a rating but it won't allow me to do it. Not sure why. I haven't made these but would do it with mild sausage & don't think I'd like chives. Wondering if Ricotta cheese could replace cottage cheese? Has anyone made these in standard muffin cups instead of mini's and if cooking time is different?"
