This is a wonderful breakfast dish when cooking for 2 people and do not want to make a large breakfast casserole or quiche. I will cook up these and have one that morning and warm up the other the next day. Put what you like in these! Add chicken or spices for a Tex Mex version, add ricotta cheese or cottage cheese, meat, or no meat or each can choose ingredients or make their own. Have a little bit of this or that left over, just put it on into this to use it up for something different.
