  • ½ Yellow onion diced
  • 1 Red bell pepper diced
  • 2 Handfuls baby spinach roughly chopped
  • ¼ Tsp Kosher salt

  • 4 Whole eggs

  • ½ Cup milk

  • Add the onion, bell pepper, spinach and cheese to each of the 12 muffin cups.* Pour ¼ to ½ cup of the egg mixture over the vegetables. Bake for 22-24 minutes, checking after 15 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
  • Once muffins have cooled, they can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days. Alternatively, they can be individually wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in a Ziploc bag for up to 1 month in the freezer. To reheat, microwave for up to 30 seconds or reheat in a toaster oven.
