  • Author: VP Alian

Ingredients

Scale
  • Olive oil spray
  • ½ Yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 Handfuls baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • ¼ Tsp Kosher salt
  • ½ Tsp black pepper
  • 4 Whole eggs
  • 4 Egg whites
  • ½ Cup milk
  • ½ Cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • Fresh rosemary, basil and parsley to taste

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with oil spray to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, and milk.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Notes

Feel free to try other combinations including: chicken sausage, spinach and feta or Canadian bacon and swiss.
