Would you hurl at the thought of a souffle or quiche? Very similar. This type of cheesecake is great for appetizers or as a main dish. It is NOT meant to be a creative dessert!

I've never understood why people hate quiche, souffle, things like kansasgirl's cheesecake, etc. It's basically your typical breakfast put together in a different way! Things like these are a delicacy to me!

Dampcharcoal made an interesting point. Breakfast foods consist of a bread, eggs, milk, cheese, bacon, etc. Put it all together and you get breakfast - the same ingredients in an omelet or fritatta too. I think that bangbang should be persuaded to try something new and report back!

These are great made into mini-muffin pans and used for an appetizer tray. The large cheesecake is a great presentation.
