We are going to be celebrating Mother’s Day next weekend since both grandmas will be in town, so I thought I would give this recipe a trial run before making it for our Mother’s Day brunch.
2 T fat free half and half
1 1/2- 2 cups diced meat: canadian bacon, ham, cooked turkey sausage or cooked veggie sausage
1 1/2- 2 cups grated low fat cheese (I like sharp cheddar or feta)
Optional, but highly recommended, 3 green onions diced small.
Preheat oven to 375.
Use regular or silicone muffin pan, 12 muffin size. If using silicone pan, spray with nonstick spray. If using regular muffin pan, put two paper liners into each slot, then spray liner with nonstick spray.
In the bottom of the muffin cups layer diced meat, cheese and green onions. You want the muffin cups to be 3/4 full, with just enough room to pour a little egg around the other ingredients. Beat eggs well with the half and half (you could use milk). Pour egg into each muffin cup until it is full to the brim, nearly overflowing.
Bake 25-30 minutes until muffins have risen above the rim of the muffin cups and are slightly browned and set.
Did I change anything? I made these with bacon and green onions for the adults and just cheese and eggs for the kids. They were very tasty and I found some fun polka-dotted muffin cup liners to use, so they were fun, too.
What did the family think? Everyone liked them. Be careful though, they take a while to cool off.

Great timing! I’ve been wanting to make some “portable” breakfast items for Chad to take to work with him. I’ll give these a shot!
