  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup of chopped ham or bacon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup of chopped white onion
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil


  • Optional: sauté the meat and veggies in an oiled skillet and set aside on a paper towel to cool & drain.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin heavily with cooking spray. (Please note that a silicon muffin tin works best.)  Set aside.
  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, and spices in a large bowl.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, ham, and veggies.
  • Fill the muffin tins. I find it best to use a ladle and stir between each scoop to keep the ingredients evenly distributed across all the muffins.
  • Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the eggs pull away from the side of the muffin tin and are set in the middle.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to four days.
