If you like breakfast sandwiches then you will love this Italian Eye Opener; a grab-and-go breakfast sandwich done up Italian style. Eggs loaded with healthy greens, Parmesan cheese and tomatoes…what’s not to love?
- Butter or cooking spray, for pan
- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Pepper, to taste
- 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
- 12 cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh baby spinach, chopped
- 12 slices Italian bread, toasted
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat six wells of a cupcake pan generously with butter or cooking spray. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and milk until color is uniform. Stir in salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Place two sliced tomatoes and a small amount of spinach into each buttered muffin cup. Fill each cup about three-fourths full with egg mixture.
- Bake 14-16 minutes or until centers are barely firm to the touch and the tops of the muffins have domed. Remove from oven and let cool 2-3 minutes in pan. Remove from pan and serve immediately between two slices of toasted Italian bread or sandwich bread.
- The egg muffins can be refrigerated for up to two days, or frozen.
