    I would consider myself a decently picky person but these were really good. I used less cheese than suggested just because I felt like it was a lot of cheese and it turned out so good. Didn’t have mini muffin trays so I used normal muffin tray and set oven to 325 and cooked until it looked done. Great for meal prepping breakfast for a quick meal in the morning. Will make again. *also just went with the easy, lazy way and just used salt and pepper with no other kind of spice*

    These are great! They're not very firm in the pan, but they firm up when they cool off. For this reason I suggest using paper muffin cups instead of nonstick spray. I also suggest replacing Italian seasoning with cumin and dicing some garlic in addition to the garlic powder. A dash of red pepper and a little but of chopped green onions are great in it, too.

    I like the concept of the recipe but I would make some changes. Next time around I’m going to use sharp cheddar or feta to give it an extra tang. As far as for seasoning, I would skip on the Italian seasoning and use red pepper flakes or some other alternative to pump up the flavor.

    I ate it for breakfast so I just put everything in a pan, and they were delicious! So easy to make.

    So easy! Perfectly delicious!!!! (They would be too salty for my husband.) Since the qinuoa is usually cooked with a dash or two of salt you could cut the salt from 1/2 tsp to 1/4 tsp. Try with sour cream instead of ranch dressing.

    Good simple recipe. I soaked the quinoa overnight before boiling though.

    It was delicious. We added a dab of sour cream instead of the rancho sauce because we didn't have any handy. So good and easy to make!

    I made these for my family. I used escarole instead of kale. They were good, but bland. Next time I'll try doubling the spices and maybe adding even more. My family put butter and/or honey on them.

    Love these! My whole family eats them. My husband in particular loves them. I usually double the amount of kale just because we love veggies. They are terrific.

    I used two cloves of fresh garlic and added onion powder and cayenne. Slightly bland still but I think these are going to be very convenient on The Go. Probably would go great with chopped broccoli instead of kale as another option

    Neither I nor my husband liked them. While the texture was nice enough the seasonings just did not seem to mesh well. Even just that tiny bit of salt the recipe called for seemed to make them much too salty. I had high hopes for them but I would not make them again. I'm sad to say that it's the first recipe I've made from yummly I didn't find yummly.

    Surprisingly tasty! I thought they would be good, but the flavors and texture were satisfying. We nooked the leftovers for 45 seconds on high, and they retained their shape and taste. I'll add sun dried tomatoes next time.

    How amazing and so tasty. Perfect for on the run or sit down meal. Hubby and grandkids didn't know what hit them they loved it! Thanks Yum!🍀
