Makes 1 Dozen Egg Muffin Cups


1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup milk of choice
1 1/2 cups veggies, diced (anything you have on hand will work - kale, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, etc.)
1/4 cup cheese (optional or use whatever is in your fridge - I've used parmesan, mozzarella, & cheddar)
1 tsp baking powder (optional, but it makes them puff up nicely)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt



1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a muffin tin.

2. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl. Whisk until combined.

3. Add the milk, veggies, cheese, baking powder, salt & pepper, and mix to combine.

4. Divide the egg mixture evenly into your greased muffin tin. 1/3 cup measuring cup works great to scoop and pour.

5. Top the muffins with another sprinkle of cheese.

6. Place on the center rack of the oven and bake at 350 for 22 minutes or until the eggs are set and slightly golden.

7. Serve immediately or allow to cool and store in the fridge or freezer or an easy grab and go option. Enjoy!
