Works for me Wednesday

This is my favorite "South Beach" breakfast. When I'm in the "zone" I make them ahead of time, keep them in the refrigerator and warm up a couple each morning.

GREEN CHILE AND CHEESE EGG "MUFFINS"
12 eggs
half of a 4 oz can diced green chiles, with juice (be sure to use Anaheim chiles, not jalapenos)
about 2 cups Four Cheese Mexican Blend (sharp cheddar is good too)
2 T cream, half and half, or milk1 tsp.
Spike Seasoning (optional)salt/pepper to taste

*I don't use muffins liners

Preheat oven to 375. Put 2 muffin liners in each muffin cup (12 muffin size pan) and spray with nonstick spray. In each muffin liner put a very generous pinch of the grated cheese. The muffin cup should be about 2/3 full before you put the egg in. Break eggs into bowl, add milk or cream and beat until egg whites and yolks are well combined. Add spices and green chiles with juice and mix into eggs. Pour egg mixture over cheese so each muffin cup liner is full to the brim. (This usually takes two pourings as the egg mixture settles over the cheese. Be sure they are as full as you can get them, but not running over the side or you will have a cooked-on egg mess.) I like to take a fork and gently "stir" in each muffin cup to get the cheese evenly distributed in the egg. Bake 375 for 35 minutes, or until all muffins are puffed up and the top is starting to brown.

This reminds me of "Christmas Eggs". It is a dish that I make every Christmas morning. I love the muffin size of your recipe! I might just borrow it. :)

Plus, you know this sounds good when Jason called me tonight and asked if I read your post. :)
