Egg Muffins

I know these are all the “rage” now. In our world, they are a perfect breakfast for our busy mornings. The kids can microwave them themselves for a change from cereal, I take one to work in the morning, and the Teen will usually heat one up for a snack if we have them.

I make them many different ways and today was ham, onion, kale and cheddar cheese. I use a jumbo size muffin tin and it’s the perfect serving.

I used 6 eggs, 1/4 cup of skim milk, and as much of the fillings as you like.

Spray your muffin tins well, layer the ingredients in, scramble the eggs and milk and pour over the filling. Sprinkle on the cheese.

Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool slightly and tip onto a plate and cool completely before placing in bags and freezing or refrigerating.

Cheerios history

Here’s an interesting tidbit of history from June 19, 1941.  The round shape was created on this day in 1941.

A little history

  • Original Cheerios® was invented in 1941 by food science innovator Lester Borchardt.
  • Originally named “Cheerioats,” healthy, wholesome oats have always played an important role as the cereal’s main ingredient.
  • Borchardt spent months experimenting with new ways to “puff” oats into the now familiar shape people and families have loved for generations. Not only did he invent the original Cheerios®, Borchardt went on to be a leader in finding practical and affordable ways to feed the world.

I love cheerios and make all sorts of different recipe treats with them. But that’s for another post!!
