Recipe Ingredients for pepper and egg muffins, variation

6 eggs
6 egg whites
2 oz diced green chiles, with juice
3 oz 50% light cheddar
2 T nonfat milk
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup bell pepper, diced (mixture of red, green, yellow)
1/4 cup black olives, chopped

Recipe Directions for pepper and egg muffins, variation

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Put 2 muffin liners in each muffin cup (12 muffin size pan) and spray with nonstick spray. In each muffin liner put a very generous pinch of the grated cheese and vegetables. The muffin cup should be about 2/3 full before you put the egg in. Break eggs into bowl, add milk or cream and beat until egg whites and yolks are well combined. Add black pepper and green chiles with juice and mix into eggs. Pour egg mixture over cheese so each muffin cup liner is full to the brim. (This usually takes two pourings as the egg mixture settles over the cheese. Be sure they are as full as you can get them, but not running over the side or you will have a cooked-on egg mess.) I like to take a fork and gently "stir" in each muffin cup to get the cheese evenly distributed in the egg.

  2. Bake 375 for 30-35 minutes, or until all muffins are puffed up and the top is starting to brown.
