Tips

  • You can make individual servings by baking in 2 1/4 inch muffin tins (large). Spray each muffin cup or line with bake cup. Add each layer: bread, cheese, cooked vegetables, egg mixture. Cooking time is 15-20 minutes. Eggs are set when still slightly moist in the center. Check with a toothpick. Yield: 12 egg cups.
  • If you use a square pan the corners will cook more quickly than the center.
  • Refrigerate leftovers or freeze individual servings.
  • Assemble, refrigerate overnight and then cook for a filling breakfast.

Try these vegetable combinations:

  • Frozen: peas, broccoli, sweet peppers, chopped spinach. Add 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning.
  • Fresh: Grated carrots, grated zucchini, chopped spinach, mushrooms. Add 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley.
  • Canned: black beans, diced tomatoes, corn. Drain each. Add 1 teaspoon ground cumin. Save the tomato and corn liquid to use as stock for soup.
