Updated: March 7, 2013 6:07AM



MAKES 6 (2-MUFFIN) SERVINGS

6 eggs

½ cup milk

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

¾ cup finely chopped zucchini (see note)

¼ cup finely chopped red bell pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended. Add cheese, zucchini, bell pepper and onion; mix well. Spoon evenly into 12 greased muffin cups (about ¼ cup each).

Bake until just set (20 to 22 minutes). Cool on rack 5 minutes. Remove from cups and serve warm or bake ahead, cover and refrigerate, and quickly reheat in microwave in morning.

Note: Finely chopped broccoli or asparagus could be substituted for zucchini. For fewer calories, use reduced-fat cheese.
