  1. Made this for my husband’s birthday breakfast. Wonderful!!

    I tried this today and it was delicious! I made 2 separate recipes and cooked one in the conventional oven and one in the toaster oven. They both came out great – in the conventional oven it took 17 minutes until done and in the toaster oven I dropped the temp to 375 and it took 19 minutes. We loved them!

    Cheesy Baked Eggs! This was absolutely delicious! Super easy to make. I will have to make this again for my husband on the weekend. I know he will love it too! Panera Bread makes a similar dish but your recipe is so much better! I am getting ready to make the oatmeal cookies. I have made them a couple of times. They are delicious as well ! Thank you for the recipes!

        Almost like a cheese soufflé recipe my Mom used to make. Can the recipe be doubled or quadrupled and cooked in the oven in a casserole dish?
