Tasty Tuesday - Egg Muffins with Ham, Cheese, and Green Bell Pepper

Well it is spring right? And what would be better than this recipe?

Egg Muffins with Ham, Cheese, and Green Bell Pepper
(Makes 12 small muffins, about 6 servings; recipe created by Kalyn after many years of experimenting with egg muffin varieties.)

1 heaping cup finely diced ham (use ham with less than 10% fat for South Beach Diet)
2/3 cup finely grated low-fat cheese (I use Costco Four Cheese Mexican Blend)
1/2 green bell pepper, finely diced
1-2 thinly sliced green onions (optional, but recommended)
12 eggs, beaten well
1 tsp. Spike seasoning (or use any seasoning blend that is good with eggs)

Preheat oven to 375F/190C.  Spray Individual Silicone Baking Cups with nonstick spray.
Dice ham and green pepper and slice green onions.  In the bottom of the the baking cups layer the ham, cheese, green pepper, and green onions, dividing each equally among the 12 baking cups. 

Break eggs into a bowl or large measuring cup that has a pour spout, then beat eggs and Spike Seasoning with a fork until they are well combined.  Pour eggs over the other ingredients until the muffin cups are nearly full, but not quite reaching the top.  (I pour some egg in each cup, let it settle, and then pour more until the cup is nearly full.)  Take a small fork and gently "stir" to distribute the ingredients in the egg mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the egg mixture is set and starting to brown slightly.  (The last few years I've been liking them more browned, but if you don't like them as brown as I do I would start checking after 20 minutes.) 

Egg muffins will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week.  



That's something a bit different, isn't it? Have you tried them yet? Certainly seems like an easy recipe, and I would think they would be very tasty. I hope that Peter has finally caught up with you!

@Diane - I intend to bake it for the orthodox Easter!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
