Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 24
  • 18 eggs
  • 1 and a half cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of choice, or more if you like it extra cheesy
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers or other veggies of choice
  • 1 cup diced ham, pre cooked or other meat such as browned sausage crumbles
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • salt and pepper
  • butter for sautéing veggies
  • cooking spray
  1. Dice the onion and bell peppers and saute on medium heat, in butter, for approximately 6-8 minutes.
  2. If you choose to use breakfast sausage or if you need to cook your ham, do that now as well.
  3. Dice the ham and set aside.
  4. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl or a really big measuring cup.
  5. Add the milk, garlic salt, salt, and pepper to the eggs and whisk well. Do not add any of the other ingredients to the eggs.
  6. Spray the muffin cups with non stick spray and add the meat, veggies and cheese directly to the muffin cups, dividing the ingredients between the 24 cups.
  7. Pour the egg mixture into the cups on top of the toppings, filling the cups approximately ⅔ of the way full.
  8. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the eggs are set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool before portioning them out in to zip top bags and freezing.
  10. When you reheat them, start with 30 seconds per cup in the microwave, heated one at a time. Increase is by 15 seconds until you figure out the right time. The actual heating time will depend on your microwave and the size of your egg cups.
