    Nothing extraordinary, but still a decent breakfast item. Will continue to make these, especially for rushed mornings.

    Nothing special BUT if you need breakfast on the go, this is a great alternative to grocery store frozen breakfast items. To me not an entertaining item but a good make ahead homemade breakfast.

    These were delish! I made them for my boyfriend to eat in the mornings before work and he liked them very much. i used the real bacon bacon-bits that you can buy in the store and they worked just as well! they were very fluffy and tasted great
