My Good Morning Egg Bites…

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to share my yummy, loaded, breakfast egg bites with you. And they aren’t just for breakfast.

Here is how I created this batch:

Grease a nonstick muffin tray and add the meat of your choice. I used deli ham slices. If you do not have a muffin pan, no worries. Towards the end, I explain how to make this recipe in a baking dish also.

In a bowl, mix 8 eggs, veggies of your choice (I had yellow bell pepper and white onion on hand) and a little milk or cream cheese. I didn’t have any regular milk so I used some Philadelphia brand  Neufchatel cheese instead, about 1/4 of the 8oz package. Add salt and pepper to taste or you can use any other seasonings you prefer.

Mix all the ingredients together. Next, pour the egg mixture into the the greased meat-lined muffin pan filling each cup halfway.

I added Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese to the top of each one this time. I also added jalapeno slices to Hubby’s egg bites.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees. The egg bites will rise up while cooking.

Don’t throw away any leftover egg mixture. You can bake it separately if you want or repeat this baking process in the muffin pan.

If you do not have a muffin pan simply grease a baking dish, follow the instructions only add your meat to the egg mixture instead and bake! Either way you make it, each bite is delicious!  Serve and enjoy.

These are the ones without jalapenos.

Once cooked you can keep them in the fridge and warm them up for a fast delicious snack or meal.

I change my ingredients according to what I have handy which also makes for a great new dish. I add more vegetables like mushrooms, spinach, zucchini…or change up the meat using sausage, bacon, linguica, chorizo even ground beef or turkey. These egg bites are also great without meat.

It’s been said that “necessity is the mother of invention”. I believe that is true. My moto is Necessity if the mother of Creativity! This is why I experiment with what I have. It is a lot of fun and a great way to take my creating into the kitchen.

I mentioned the other day about my mini DIY kitchen project my oldest son is helping me with. Well, it’s still a work-in-progress. Here is the top of the cabinet my son built and I stained and painted. I am loving it!
