Hi Jules, I should have checked I had a message here, sorry about that.

I'm glad you liked the recipe and it looks great on your blog. I plan to put more healthy recipes on here - all are free from dairy, wheat, gluten and sugar.

Hi Bing, sorry for the delay, I didn't realise I had a message on here. 1 cup = 240ml so 1/2 cup = 120ml. A cup is really an American measure. I hope that helps. Paul

Delicious! I just made these as a sort of lunch/breakfast and had them with some homemade salsa! I was afraid one egg wouldn't be enough to keep them together, but it did :D Will perhaps aff some chilli- and paprika powder to them next time :) Because there will be a next time! :D Great source of protein :)

These sound delicious. I have jotted the recipe down in my notepad and will definitely be making these in the near future! I foresee a post on my blog if they turn out as tasty as they look here, which I'm sure they will :D
