- 1/4 green pepper, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Process: Start by heating your oven to 350F. Cook your chosen meat until no longer pink. In a large bowl, mix eggs until well beaten. Add veggies and seasonings and mix well. Spray a muffin tin, or use one like this, and put in about 1/3 cup of the mixture into each cup. Bake for about twenty minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve immediately. If you want to freeze them, allow them to cool first. Then wrap first in wax paper, then in plastic wrap, and put into resealable plastic freezer bags and freeze. To reheat, either microwave for 30-60 seconds or warm in the oven at 350F until warmed through.
And there you have it! A way to feed your tiny humans some good food in a flash. Happy Baking!
