Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Coat large sized muffin pan with Pam spray or with shortening or use large paper muffin cup liners.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, bacon, spinach and peppers, cheese, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp ground black pepper. Spoon evenly into large muffin pan (about 3/4 full).  Add 1 T of water to each of the six individual muffin sections and gently mix for a fluffier texture before baking 30-35 minutes or until eggs are set.
  3. Carefully remove from the oven and cool slightly. At this point, serve the egg bites with optional toppings or cool completely and store covered, in the fridge up to 3 days.
  4. Reheating:  To reheat, Microwave 30 seconds at a time to 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until heated enough. Let stand 1 minute before eating.
