Eggcellent Quick Egg Muffins

When you are a commuter, sometimes your drive/train ride to work can be some what of a part-time job.  I used to take the Metro North train every day to work which meant a 2 hour door-to-door commute each way making the total trip 4 hours (a part-time job). I’ve cut my commute down to about an hour drive each way with traffic (mind you I only live 15 miles from the office)

I am also NOT a morning person, so anything to make my morning easier is key.  Being diabetic I can’t just grab a bagel and go, I need to eat something low carb and it is definitely hard to find in a breakfast food.  These Eggcellent breakfast cups are great to make ahead on the weekend, freeze, and microwave in the morning as a quick, easy, HEALTHY meal!

Here’s what you will need:
12 eggs (you could use just egg whites for a healthier option)
1/2 cup Low Fat milk
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
4oz Feta Cheese
1/2 cup Spinach, chopped
1 Tomato

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12 muffin tray with cooking spray.

Whisk the eggs and the milk in a large bowl.  Add the feta cheese, chopped spinach, cut up tomato and pepper and stir to combine.

Pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin tin about 2/3 of the way full in each cup. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes.  Let cool in tray, remove from muffin tin and cool on cooling rack.

Freeze in ziplock baggies.  I heat my frozen egg muffins in the microwave for about 40-60seconds but time may vary.

What other food would you add to your egg muffins?  It may be good with avocado and turkey!

Enjoy!
