I know that eggs are good for you, in moderation, and pack a lot of protein; something I feel I need more of, especially in the morning. So, in an effort to start my day with more protein and less carbs (after all, my 90 day weight loss challenge is underway) I made some egg "muffins" today.
In order for said muffins to be edible the "other stuff" to egg ratio must be very high. So, I chopped up some purple onion, Black Forest ham, celery, mushrooms and red pepper and sauteed it all. Now that looks good.
Meanwhile, I whisked together 6 eggs, some milk and some grated sharp cheddar in a bowl.
I added the sauteed veggies and ham to the egg mixture, then using a ladle, filled 6 muffin cups (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray first).
I baked them at 325F for about 20 minutes. You may need to adjust the cooking time. I took them out when they looked ready.
Much to my delight, they are actually pretty good! They don't have a strong egg taste at all - nothing that a bit of ketchup won't mask anyway ;)
If you have any tips on cooking eggs so that they don't taste like eggs, I'd love to hear them!
