Need to precook hashbrown cups, less mushrooms, and 1 is not a big enough serving

Very good!! Subbed with ham and cheddar and 'sauteed' the mushrooms & onion with the butter in the microwave. . . it's a lazy kinda Sunday and they came out great :) I think next time I will pre-bake the hash brown nest to make them a little crispy.

Nice variety for breakfast. I decreased the quantity of mushrooms to 2 cups. One was not enough to call a meal, but no guilt eating 2 as still low in calories. Tastier the next day, reheated well.

These are very good. I would go with a little less mushroom next time.

Very yummy, and looks impressive for the effort. Needs light salt over the potatoes, and a bit mixed into the eggs as well. We love that they are a healthy breakfast.

I made these for my granddaughter and we both agreed that they made a great breakfast.

I loved this recipe. I have one and two year old little boys, and not only did they enjoy them, but they were easy for them to eat with their little hands. The next time I make them, I plan to add spinach and I may substitute the Swiss cheese for Feta. I think they'd be great at a bridal brunch.

I made these for a Mother's Day Brunch that I hosted at my house. Delicious! Not a single leftover! My husband wants me to make them again just to have on hand for a quick breakfast. At only 101 calories per serving, they seem like a great healthy breakfast option. I'm anxious to see how they reheat.

I served these at a tea party I host every year for five close friends, and it was a hit. I do not enjoy cooking nor do I consider myself handy in the kitchen, but the recipe sounded simple and tasty, so I gave it a try. I'm so glad I did. All my guests thoroughly enjoyed the dish, each had seconds, and all of them wanted the recipe. Can't wait to make it again!
