“There's one recipe here that's fairly similar to this one, but the proportions are a little different. These are my favourite accompaniment to bacon and eggs or huevos rancheros on a Saturday morning. (And if you're like me and can't stand washing and drying muffin tins, just bake it in a greased 8x8 or 9-inch round pan like a cake. Same baking time, same taste, WAY less mess and clean-up!!)”
