These were very good! I added crumbled sausage and black olives, in addition to the mushrooms and green onions. They were a bit greasy... I might cut back a little on the sausage, cheese and butter next time. I upgraded my review.... took these camping and we ate them for days... they were great microwaved.

What a great recipe! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed these puffs with our brunch and I will definitely be making them again!

i have made this several times and it is a keep and must make again recipe. they are great for breakfast and snacks too. i did vary the type of cheese and any flavor works well.

As I was making this, I thought, "Why am I making this? It's probably not very good." So glad I was wrong! I got 24 muffins, not 15. A bonus!

These were good. I added cooked pork sausage, bell peppers and spinach to mine along with the recommended ingredients listed. I didn't have any green onions so I substituted one yellow onion. I also didn't have any Colby cheese so I used shredded taco blend cheeses to mine. I love the fact that you can pretty much used anything in this recipe that your family likes or what you have on hand and it still turns our wonderful. These would also be good with diced tomatoes or salsa added on top just before serving and maybe even a teaspoon of sour cream. This is certainly a keeper and will go in my favorite recipes file.

I really liked these hot out of the oven, but not so much reheated. I love recipes I can make ahead, so I'll try this again and see how they are.

Delicious Recipe!! I made these in mini muffin size, and in a brownie pan, with DOUBLE the mushrooms and some garlic, and everyone RAVED.:0) My husband asked if he could take some extra in to work to share with some coworkers, and he never does that! This is a keeper, and like others said - this recipe is flexible. (But it's GREAT as is!)

I have made these repeatedly over the years, adding crumbled bacon to them. Many times after baking I will freeze them individually and pull out what I need for breakfast and zap them in the microwave to reheat. They are WONDERFUL and great for low carb diets!

I make these ALL of the time, and they are frequently asked for by my friends! I usually substitute the mushroom/green onion mix for other ingredients (like bacon/sausage, or multi colored peppers. you can even make up your own like ham&swiss, or chorizo with some salsa.)I have also cut down the butter to 1/4c. (in the egg mix) and have used 2% small curd cottage cheese and they are still great! They are very versatile! Also, easy to freeze, and just remove a few and microwave for about 1 minute for a quick breakfast!
