Light and fluffy, I sprinkled a little parsley and paprika on top to add a little color and more flavor. A good dish for brunch with fruit and any sides.

I used muffin tins (lined with silicone cupcake liners) to make individual servings. So fluffy and moist. A bit salty, I might experiment with reduced-sodium cottage cheese next time.

This was very very cheesy and tasted more like egg and cheese for breakfast. It did taste very good with side of vegetables

We love it! It's super easy, it has become one of our favourite light suppers. I like to try different cheese or flavoured cream cheese, and occasionally toss in some tomato trinity mix or a pepper mix for colour and flavour.

My husband loved it, so did my kids. It was light and fluffy and not at all bland. I highly recommend it.

I added 2 tablespoons finely sliced green onions when melting the butter and then added the flour. I used a 10 inch deep dish pie plate - 9 inch was too small. We loved this recipe and have already made it again.
