Reviews forMini Sausage Quiches
"This recipe was LIFE CHANGING! IT was so amazing, and not only did I and my guests love it, but I now use it as a 'template' recipe for breakfast quiches. I switch up the ingredients, like the cheese, the sausage, add more veggies, I just keep the measurements for the eggs and the cheese the same, for the correct ratio of egg to cheese taste. Overall, THANKS SO MUCH, I love this recipe! It tastes great with all different cheeses and breakfast sausage too! Also - I've never made it in a mini muffin tin, I just use a regular 12 muffin cup tin and the timing on cooking it is the same."
"These are great!"
"I don't think the calorie count on these could be correct. Even doubling it for using a bigger muffin cup."
"This recipe is tasty. But though it is good, I didn't really think it was worth the extra effort it took to prepare the separate quiches. I'll stick with Bacon Swiss Squares."
"Made in regular muffins tins and got a batch of 16 when I used two cans of crescent dough. I substituted an Italian mix of cheese in the place of Swiss. So good! Will make again!"
"Seems great can't wait to try it!"
"Big hit in our home on Christmas Day! A little tedious, but yummy!"
"I made these for a potluck at work and doubled the recipe. The only change I made was to use ricotta cheese instead of the cottage. Everyone loved them. One word of warning though, since I made so many I had to use both oven racks and unfortunately did not watch them close enough. I ended up burning the entire lower rack, which was not even on the lowest notch. Lesson learned!"
