To save time, whip these Bites up the night before. In the morning, serve cold – or warm two Bites for about 30 seconds in the microwave.

Ingredients:

1 bag (12 ounces, steam-in-the-bag) frozen Broccoli florets, steamed according to package directions
6 Eggs
½ cup low-fat Milk
1/8 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon ground black Pepper
½ teaspoon Garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried Oregano
2 tablespoons chopped red bell Pepper (about ¼ of a pepper)
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Cheddar or Mozzarella cheese

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat 12 muffin cups in a muffin/cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
2. On a cutting board, roughly chop 1 cup of steamed broccoli. Place chopped broccoli in medium mixing bowl; use remaining broccoli for another purpose.
3. To the bowl of broccoli, add all remaining ingredients except cheese; whisk together.
4. Using a ¼-cup measuring cup, divide mixture among 12 muffin cups; top each cup with about 1 rounded tablespoon of cheese. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin cups.

Cook's Notes:

To avoid extra clean-up of baked-on egg, heavily spray sides and bottoms of muffin cups or use aluminum foil cupcake liners if planning to eat immediately; can also be warmed for 5 minutes in a 350° oven. (Do not put foil-lined Bites in the microwave.)
