Ingredients
  1. 1-2 handfuls diced fresh spinach
  2. 1 bell pepper (your favourite colour)
  3. 3 green onions
  4. (4 little cherry tomatoes/one normal tomato)
  5. 12 Eggs
  6. 1 tsp salt
  7. 12 slot muffin tin
  8. Optional - these all go great. Add whatever you fancy!
  9. 2 oz grated cheese (eg. cheddar)
  10. 2-3 splashes of Tapatio, tabasco, Siracha, or salsa
  11. salt and pepper
  12. Baking paper or muffin cups (only if you don't have a nonstick muffin tin)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 390°F.
  2. Wash and dice the pepper, onions and other vegetables and put them in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the eggs and salt and mix well. Pro tip - crack the eggs separately before adding. That way if you get a dodgy one, it won’t ruin the whole meal.
  4. Optionally add some hot sauce,.
  5. Grease the muffin tin with oil and kitchen paper/baking brush and pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin slots. (If you think they might still stick to the pan use some muffin cups or cut out some baking paper and to use as cups - definitely saves time on doing the washing up ;)
  6. If you’re so inclined then layering some cheese over the top of each muffin before they go into the oven is a delicious addition! You can also mix in the cheese to the batter.
  7. Pop the tray into the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are firm to the touch.
  8. Bon Appetit!!
Notes
  1. Vary ingredients, such as zucchini, red onion, tomatoes, cubed ham, etc.
