•Preheat oven to 350 degrees F°. Line muffin pans with paper muffin/cupcake papers. (They WILL Stick if you skip this step)
•Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in salt and pepper and set aside.
•Add your choice of toppings to the muffin tins
•Pour enough egg mixture to just enough to cover the toppings. (No more than ¾ full)
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Insert a knife in the center of one; if it comes out clean, they are ready to eat!
These can be prepared the night before … pop in the oven in the morning.
They may also be cooked and frozen … just a few seconds in the microwave to reheat.
Great way to spend time with the little one’s while inspiring creativity and love of healthy foods.
