Eggy Muffins

Must haves...
   Eggs (use the # eggs as the # of muffins you are making, and +1 egg -- a serving is 2 muffins)
   Cooking Spray (I use good ol' fashioned Pam)
   Salt and Pepper to taste (and any other seasoning you would like in the eggs)
   Green onions are highly reccomended
   Veggies and cheese
   ***See below for combination ideas

   Muffin tin
   Large bowl with a pour spout or large glass measuring cup
   Baking sheet

Preheat oven to 375

Beat eggs with whisk in bowl/measuring cup. Add salt/pepper and desired seasonings.

Spray muffin tin liberally with cooking spray. Add veggies (if using leaf lettuce/etc put this down first and layer other veggies on top) and cheese. Pour egg over veggie in each muffin tin - fill appx 2/3 of the way full.

Place muffin tin on top of baking sheet (to catch the mess that may or may not poof over the side) - bake for 20-25 minutes.

If you are eating immediately, eat 'em while they're hot!!
If you are storing for future, let 'em cool, and store in plastic baggies (I just put 2x in each baggie to grab and go for breakfast)

***Veggie ideas....the combinations are endless!...
Torn spinach leaves + shredded RF cheddar cheese
This was the first combo I tried. I didn't have green onions so I ignored that suggestion slash recommendation... but it DEF needs something to give it more flavor.

Arugula + chopped jalepeno + shredded RF italian blend. To the eggs, I added garlic powder, onion powder, and a little ground mustard, AND I sprinked paprika on the top once everything was poured.
OMG ok so this was a GREAT 2nd try. Awesome flavor (a little kick!). I am currently eating it for dinner.

SO - I think my absolute favorite part of this recipe is how dynamic it is. A cross between a fritatta and a quiche, this is such a tasty little morsel. I originally wanted to do it for an easy and healthy grab and go breakfast that would fill me up, but then I was making them tonight and realized I didn't have much for dinner, and EUREEKA! Dinner! The possiblities really are endless, I am super excited to try a greek combination using feta cheese and olives! Holy cannoli...yumm-O!

.....oooh cannolis are for another day. Got a great recipe for you on that one ;)
