what a neat concept...I am hosting a brunch in a couple weeks and this will definitely make the "egg portion" alot easier...can make each one individual for a made to order but do it all at once timing. Next time going to use bacon bits, veggies, and sausage slices alternately! Thanks cbella!

Adding bacon or sausage and spinach makes it even yummier!

I replaced Half&Half with Heavy Whipped Cream, and it was still delicious. Maybe add a bag of splenda just to boost a hint of sweetness? Love the textures of the combination of cheese and onion. It melt in your mouth!

Yum, I omitted the onions and added mushrooms, and some bacon.

I made these and used egg whites in lieu of a couple of the eggs and also mixed in mushrooms, green peppers and a few teaspoons of bacon bits. I then freeze them and take them for a quick and easy breakfast at work. Very good.

Awesome! I didn't have half and half so (on my mom's suggestion) I used carnation milk mixed with water, which actually gave it a tiny bit of sweetness. I also used twice the green onion because I adore green onion and Monterey Jack cheese rather than mozza and parmesan. If you reserve a bit of the cheese and sprinkle it over the top once they're done baking and let it melt it's absolutely divine. Might try with just egg whites next time.
