Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray a nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray or shortening. Place three pieces of turkey bacon (uncooked) in the bottom of each muffin cup.
In a Separate Bowl
Put aside 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Next, you’re going to place the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and thoroughly mix everything together.
Putting It Together
Now you’re ready to put your egg muffins together. Place a quarter cup of the egg mixture into each muffin cup. Before putting your egg muffins in the oven, sprinkle the 1/4 cup of cheese you put aside before on top of each muffin. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Check to make sure that the eggs are set before taking it out of the oven.
The great thing about making a recipe like this is the ability to include some variations on the basic recipe. For instance, you can add some sliced tomatoes and green peppers if you want to make a healthier egg muffin. You can also experiment with the cheese. If Monterey Jack isn’t your style, consider cheddar or provolone cheese instead. Ham can also be a delicious variation. Feeling creative? Why not mix and match with some with turkey bacon and a little ham? You can also use more turkey bacon and a little more cheese, if you desire. Enjoy!
