I like eggs but I hate preparing them. This is my solution. Bake once and eat all week, or freeze for the future. You can eat these muffins as is or throw them into a tortilla for a quick breakfast wrap. And, if you like variety, change up your vegetable add-ins.
Ingredients
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ½ cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chopped vegetables and herbs of your choice *
  • Salt and pepper to taste

* Here I diced mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and some fresh cilantro.

Directions
  • Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Spray 12 muffin tin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Chop up any and all vegetables you’d like to add-in. If desired, include some fresh herbs,
  • In a big bowl, crack eggs, add milk and wisk together.
  • Fold all your vegetables into the egg mixture.
  • Add cheese and mix well.
  • Pour egg mixture into each of the muffin tins. Be sure not to overfill. I find filling the cups to 3/4 height works best (see the tin on the left).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once the muffins are completely cool, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Or you can wrap each muffin tightly in plastic wrap and then place in foil or bags and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat baked egg cups in the microwave or in the toaster oven.
