    This was easy and yummy. Even the kids liked it. I added red peppers and a little milk to stretch the eggs. Will definitely make again.

    Well they really only keep for one day, or should it be one week?

    I don’t have ramekins. Could I bake them in a muffin pan? About how much would I put in each one and would I bake it for the same time? Wasn’t sure how much the mixture would rise and don’t want to overfill the pan. Thanks!!

      Jessica, Yes muffin tins are fine and fill about 3/4 full or 2/3 if you don’t want to take a chance on overfilling. Yes, bake for the same amount of time. 🙂
