Today’s recipe has been submitted by America’s Egg Farmers, www.incredibleegg.org.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
3/4 cup chopped zucchini
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in medium bowl until blended. Add cheese, zucchini, bell pepper and onion; mix well. Spoon evenly into 12 greased muffin cups, about 1/4 cup each.
Bake until just set, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool on rack five minutes. Remove from cups; serve warm.
• Quick breakfast solution: Bake muffin frittatas the night before and refrigerate. Quickly re-warm in the microwave in the morning.
• Lighter Option: Recipe can be made with reduced-fat cheese, if desired.
