These were perfect for a tasty utensil free finger food. I did add about a T of minced red pepper. I also used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese because I had some which needed to be used. It took a bit of gentle but persistent rolling to get enough dough from.one roll. I placed the cut dough into the muffin tin then used the bottomed of a shot glass to gently press the dough on the bottom and up the sides. It was fast and easy. These were quite tasty.

Can't eat sausage to spicy; can I use crisp bacon in bite size instead. If so, how much bacon?

They are very good. I needed an appetizer that would be good at room temperature and these did the trick.

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.

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!
