    How long would you estimate you bake these? I’m just looking for a ballpark figure.

    Not sure, as I haven’t made these yet myself. It says “until eggs are done”, but eggs do cook fairly quickly, so it’d be just a few minutes if I had to guess.

    EDIT: I emailed the guy who originally posted the recipe. Will update the recipe if/when I get a reply. 🙂
