Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Muffin Tin
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Bacon
    1

    Cook the Bacon

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Cut bacon into ½" dice. Place bacon in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat (no need to preheat) and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 5-8 minutes. Remove to towel-lined plate. While bacon cooks, prepare ingredients. Dispose of remaining drippings carefully; never down the drain!

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli florets into ½" pieces. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Cut roasted red pepper into ½" dice.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Egg Mixture

    Prepare the Muffins

    Fill six compartments of prepared muffin tin ¾ full with egg mixture and top with broccoli, roasted red pepper, white portions of green onions, bacon (reserve a bit for garnish), and remaining cheese. Any leftover egg mixture can make a bonus muffin.

  • Step 5 - Bake the Muffins

    Bake the Muffins

    Place muffin tin on prepared baking sheet. Bake until muffins have slightly risen and are light brown on top, 18-20 minutes. (If using a casserole dish, bake 20-22 minutes). Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes. If necessary, slide a knife or spoon around muffins to release from muffin tin.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish
