You’ve seen the commercials where families are gathered around the table eating a hot, healthy breakfast before heading out the door to school and work, right?  Does that happen at your house…cause around here the mornings can be utter chaos!  Who has time to cook?!?  Certainly not me.

Egg Muffins with Ham, Cheese, and Green Bell Pepper

(Makes 12 small muffins, about 6 servings)

1 heaping cup finely diced ham
2/3 cup finely grated low-fat cheese
1/2 green bell pepper, finely diced
1-2 thinly sliced green onions (optional, but recommended)
12 eggs, beaten well
1 tsp. Spike seasoning (or use any seasoning blend that is good with eggs)

Preheat oven to 375F/190C.  Spray Individual Silicone Baking Cups with nonstick spray.

Dice ham and green pepper and slice green onions.  In the bottom of the baking cups layer the ham, cheese, green pepper, and green onions, dividing each equally among the 12 baking cups.

Break eggs into a bowl or large measuring cup that has a pour spout, then beat eggs and Spike Seasoning with a fork until they are well combined.  Pour eggs over the other ingredients until the muffin cups are nearly full, but not quite reaching the top.  (Pour some egg in each cup, let it settle, and then pour more until the cup is nearly full.)  Take a small fork and gently “stir” to distribute the ingredients in the egg mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the egg mixture is set and starting to brown slightly.

Egg muffins will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week.   To reheat, microwave 30-60 seconds.  (Don’t cook too long in the microwave or they get rubbery.

Pop these in the microwave on your way out the door and you’ve got a hot and healthy breakfast to go!  Experiment with other ingredients like tomato and feta cheese or spinach.  Make these on a Sunday night for breakfast all week long.
