In a medium bowl, combine 8 eggs (you can use less, but this seems to fill a 12 muffin pan and any of the following:

  • Garlic (1 clove, minced)
  • Vegetables — You can really be flexible here, I usually use what’s left in my fridge. Great choices include bell/sweet peppers, spinach, broccoli and onions.

Line the bottom of each muffin with prosciutto or pancetta (this is the key). If you’re not a meat person, just spray each muffin holder with cooking spray or lightly oil them.

Pour the egg mixture in to each muffin, filling about 3/4 of the way (it will puff up).

Bake for 20-25 minutes.
