Yields 10 muffins

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 6 teaspoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely diced green pepper
  • 6 slices bacon, diced, fried and drained

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly oil the muffin tin using a paper towel.
  2. Beat the eggs and milk with a hand heater on a high speed until frothy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle in most of the Parmesan, reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top of the muffins, and mix well.
  5. Place a tablespoon of bacon in each muffin tin. Pour in the egg mixture to about ¾ full (the mixture will puff up when it cooks).
  6. Add a teaspoon each of the red and green peppers to each muffin tin.
  7. Top with remaining cheese.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until top is puffy and golden.
  9. Remove from muffin tins and serve immediately.
