Non-stick oil spray, 375g Mixed vegetables, e.g., peppers, onions, mushrooms, or spinach chopped, 7 large eggs, 60ml milk, 70g vegetarian ham, pepperoni, salami, or bacon chopped¼ 30g Cheddar cheese shredded, salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C.
Spray a skillet with non-stick spray, and then, over medium heat, add your chosen vegetables and cook until they are softened, approximately 4 – 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain off any excess fluid.
Spray your muffin tin with a generous amount of nonstick spray. Mix eggs, milk, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl to taste. Now divide the vegetable mix between the muffin holes, then divide the vegetarian meat, place it on top of the vegetables, and then the cheese.
Pour the egg mixture on top of the vegetable and veggie meat mix, just enough so that there is a little room at the top as they will puff up. Bake until the egg bites are set, approximately 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and either serve them immediately, or alternatively, you can eat them cold. Enjoy your egg bites!
