    Light, fluffy, delicious! Fast & easy to make. I’ve tried 3 of your recipes and will use ALL of them again. You rock!

    Made this for brunch today. I used a mix of Asiago, Fontina, Parmesan, & Provolone (in addition to the cheddar) because it was all I had. Super delicious. I might reduce the amount of butter next time. But that’s a me thing.

  3. 5 stars
    I enjoyed this recipe. It puffed up beautifully and was very tasty. I added some sautéed finely chopped onions and green peppers (approx. 1 tbsp of each), and when cooked, I topped it off with a bit of Franks RedHot sauce! I’ll definitely make this again!

  4. 4 stars
    This was delicious! I can’t wait to try it again with some sausage or broccoli added. It was simple to make yet felt like a nice treat on a lazy Sunday morning. Thanks for sharing.
