Thank you Kristyn

Crystal

I’m going to try this with sausage instead of bacon (not a fan of bacon). Looks so delicious! I know my family is going to love it just like they love the biscuit egg casserole, which is now one of my family’s favorites. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Lynn

Could you prepare the Breakfast Bites the night before and bake in the morning?

    Lil' Luna

    It should be ok. I haven’t done that, but I don’t see why not. I’d love to know how they turn out! Thank you!

    Annette

    Lynn did you try preparing the night before? If so, how did it turn out? Looking to make this for a breakfast potluck and if it can be prepared the night before would work out perfectly.

Rosa

About to try these, they look so yummy and easy!! Thanks:)) Also, adding some mushrooms to it was well:)

    Lil' Luna

    Hope you like them!! I’d love to know what you think. Mushrooms would be great! Thank you!

    I make quiche on holidays and this is like mini quiches with using the biscuit dough in place of pie crust but I use in my quiche heavy cream/whipping cream not milk, it makes it richer in flavor. Try chopped green onions, ham and Swiss cheese, it’s to die for. This is a great recipe and I am going to try this.

Kelly

I’ve made these before and they are delicious! I want to make them for some friends but a few of them are lactose intolerant. Do you think soy milk will work?

    Lil' Luna

    I have not tried, so honestly can’t tell you. I guess it doesn’t hurt to try..maybe a small batch to see? Let us know! Thank you!

Kathia

This look so delicious. Are you cook the bacon before put it on the oven? Thanks

Julia

Yep I think ‘the more cheese the better’ is pretty much my life motto ๐Ÿ˜‰

These look so tasty though!

Can these be frozen and heated up within the week??

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried, but I don’t see why not. I’m sure they’d be fine ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you & enjoy!
