As a Facebook user I come across like many of you do as well, numerous recipes to experiment with. One Saturday evening around 10:30pm as I lay in bed (my Saturdays are very exciting), I made the decision to attempt eggs in a muffin tin for breakfast the next morning. I found a recipe that was simple, not that any of them are complicated, and tried it out in the morning.
To the delight of my family and myself, these were some of the best eggs I have ever made! I did not have to stand over the stove watching everything either which was a huge bonus! I used ingredients I had on hand to go in the eggs which included ham and diced tomatoes, but these ingredients can be swapped for almost anything you prefer. Here is the basic recipe I used from the web site "The Lemon Bowl".
12 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
6 slices Canadian bacon - diced
1/4 cup minced scallions
salt and pepper to taste
4 ounces shredded cheese (cheddar, marble etc.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray muffin pan. In a large bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in bacon and scallions with salt and pepper to taste. Divide egg mixture between 12 muffin tins (1/3 cup each), sprinkle with cheese. Bake until eggs are set 25-30 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from pan.
I have seen similar recipes used with bacon, sausage, mushrooms, peppers etc. Go wild!
Interesting tidbit: According to www.incredibleegg.org East Indian history indicates wild fowl were domesticated as early as 3200 B.C. Egyptian and Chinese records show fowl laying eggs for man in 1400 B.C. It is believed Columbus' ships carried the first chickens to the Americas. There are nearly 200 breeds and varieties of chickens worldwide.
