Number of Servings: 12


    7 large eggs
    1/4 cup milk
    3/4 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
    1 cup diced red onion
    12 slices shaved brown sugar ham lunchmeat (like Oscar Mayer)
    1 TBSP Olive Oil
    1/8 tsp Garlic powder
    1/2 tsp Tabasco
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 tsp dried parsley


Makes 12 muffins.

Saute diced onions in Olive Oil until clear, add diced ham to the pan and cook until slightly brown and then set aside to cool.

Set oven to 350 Degrees.

Combine eggs, milk, Tabasco, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add shredded cheese and stir together.

Slowly add the cooled ham mixture to the egg mixture and then spoon into a 12 cup muffin tin. I've used silicone and throw away tin pans, the tin ones needed a spray of non-stick cooking spray (like Pam) the silicone ones didn't need anything.

Place in oven on center rack and cook for about 15 minutes. When done the eggs should bejust barely done on top and slightly dry. They will cook more from the carryover heat when you take them out of the oven. DO NOT OVERCOOK.

    These are great for busy or lazy mornings. They also freeze well so you can make a tray and have them ready to go when needed. Defrosting and toaster oven time about 15 minutes. - 6/7/08

    hubby and I both loved it! Instead of garlic powder I used roasted garlic. I also used muffin papers and the egg got stuck on them so next time will just use the muffin tin and some cooking spray. - 6/1/08

    These were incredible. My only problem is that they were a little too salty. I can't wait to try these again and put in some swiss cheese and mushrooms, some broccoli, or use bacon. Very easy, very tasty!! - 8/15/10

    I made this for my daycare kids and they loved it, I just left out the onions, and tabasco sauce. Good idea. - 6/15/08

    I haven't made this yet, but to quote another reviewer "I can't believe they are good for you!" I'm not so sure it is. Ham, 2% cheese and presumably whole milk? The saturated fat alone says to me that this would be OK occasionally, but not for everyday. - 1/24/09
