"This is for Odess. 2 cups of cheese is 8 oz. 16oz. would be 4 cups. Read any package of shredded cheese, I know it seems confusing, I always have to look it up, like dry macaroni is 2 cups for 8 oz. Remember, these are dry products, not liquid and by volume."

"Like I do when making corn bread, I put a veg oil in the pan, make sure to brush it over the sides then put in the over until it is very hot, like ready to fry bacon. I fill it at once then place back into the over. You get nice crisp sides and bottom.

"I made this for the employees where I work and it was a major hit! One question, shouldn't the recipe say '2 cups (16 ounces) of cheese' instead of '2 cups (8 ounces)' ?"

"These were great. A fun twist on breakfast. I mixed some almond milk in with the eggs, skipped the red bell pepper and added some onions and some bacon. Very delicious!"

"I made this earlier in the week and was blown away by the flavour. It's amazing! I grated my own potatoes instead of using premade hashbrowns and used just one cup of cheese instead of two. The Johnsanville sausages are absolutely delicious. If I could give this recipe more than five stars, I would!"

"These were really good. The only changes I made were to use freshly grated potatoes (I don't buy frozen hash browns) and I used shredded pepper jack cheese."

"My husband and I have a flock of domestic ducks. We get a lot of eggs especially in the summer. I am always looking for recipes that use lots of eggs and are easy to prepare.

My husband Ken really enjoyed this dish. baking this in muffin tins is a great idea for individual servings."
