First, chop up your veggies.

I used chopped spinach, roma tomatoes, baby bella mushrooms, and green bell pepper.

You can mix and match whatever veggies you have on hand!

Spray your muffin tin generously with nonstick cooking spray.

This will help the muffin cups not stick to the baking dish.

Distribute the veggies evenly into the bottoms of the 12 muffin cups.

In a large bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika.

Pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin tins to cover the vegetables.

Top with freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until eggs are set.

Allow to cool a few minutes, then use a butter knife to run around the edges of the cups before removing them.

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
