    Yum, my kids would love these. I would skip the parsley becuase I am a weird person who doesn’t like it.. I know right!! But with spinach, as you suggest, just perfect!!

    Hi Jess do you use anything in the moulds (patty pans) or silicone or direct in? I’m worried about the egg sticking. Ellen

      Hi Ellen I use silicone so they don’t stick!

    How would these go frozen? I’m thinking I’d love them myself and would make an easy breakfast too

      Hi Caitlin I’m not sure, I never freeze egg stuff. Try it with a couple before trying a whole batch. I am wondering if they will go watery when defrosted?
