My family can't get enough of these. I fill the cups with each family members favorite ingredients so everybody gets exactly what they like, still very easy. Making them again tonight for breakfast in the morning.

I haven't made this yet, but can't wait. I will add some hash browns on the bottom of the cup to use as a crust.

Made these for Mom for her Birthday. Very easy to make and taste awesome! I made as written but added some sauteed green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Mom was thrilled! Thank you for sharing.

The precoooked bacon strips are great for this. I used a mini muffin pan to make a bunch of bite-sized cups for a brunch potluck.

I made these on Mother's Day for my family and everyone loved them. None of us like egg bakes or quiche, so I thought I'd try this out. I mixed the cheese in the egg mixture before filling the nests. Even my brother-in-law, who was griping about the turkey bacon while I was preparing them, stopped eating to tell me how good they were. Great easy recipe.
