Egg MuffinsCourse: Recipes
6 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite cheese)
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon or diced ham (optional)
1/4 cup diced bell peppers (optional)
1/4 cup diced onions (optional)
Cooking spray or butter for greasing the muffin tin
- Preheat your oven to 190°C and lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or butter.
- In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them together until well beaten. Add the milk, salt, and pepper, and whisk again until everything is well combined.
- If you're using any optional ingredients like bacon, ham, bell peppers, or onions, add them to the egg mixture and stir to distribute them evenly.
- Pour the egg mixture into the greased muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way full.
- Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each muffin cup, using as much as you prefer.
- Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the egg muffins are puffed up, set in the center, and lightly golden on top.
- Once done, remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the egg muffins cool for a few minutes. This will allow them to firm up a bit and make them easier to remove from the tin.
- Use a butter knife or a spoon to gently loosen the edges of each egg muffin, then carefully remove them from the muffin tin and transfer them to a wire rack or a plate to cool completely.
- Serve the egg muffins warm or at room temperature as a delicious breakfast or snack. They can be enjoyed on their own or paired with toast, fresh fruit, or a side salad.
- These egg muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen for longer storage. To reheat, simply microwave them for a short time or warm them in a preheated oven until heated through.
