Ingredients

  • 7 large eggs
  • ¼ cup whole milk or milk of choice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped really small
  • ½ cup chopped spinach stems removed, chop the leafy part
  • ¼ cup shredded cheese

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375°. Prepare a muffin pan by spraying 7 of the muffin cups really well with cooking spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Whisk well to combine. Stir in the bell pepper, spinach, and cheese.
  • Divide the egg mixture evenly between the 7 muffin cups. They will be nearly full which is fine.
  • Bake for 16-22 minutes or until the egg cups are really puffy and the center is set.
    * Use a toothpick inserted in the middle to double check for doneness, if needed.
  • Eat immediately OR you can store them in the fridge for 2-3 days. Eat cold or reheat in the microwave.

Notes

Nutrition Information : Information is for 1 egg muffin cup with the whole milk used in the recipe. If you use a lower fat milk, or non-dairy milk, then the calories will be slightly different. 
Spinach : I buy the baby spinach and take off the long stem part on each piece. I then chop up just the leafy spinach part. 
Milk : I think whole milk tastes best when making eggs which is why I always use it in this recipe. You can use 1% or 2% if wanted. I would suggest not using skim milk.
