Little omelette “muffins” packed with veggies and a touch of pancetta and cheese.
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Dice half of a red bell pepper.
In a bowl, preferably one with a pour spout, whisk 14 eggs until smooth.
Add in a half cup of milk and some salt & pepper. Whisk until combined and frothy.
Sauté the diced pepper in a skillet with a tablespoon of oil, until just tender. Toss in a cup and a half of fresh baby spinach. Cook just until the spinach is wilted.
Meanwhile slice two scallions.
Pour the egg mixture into a greased standard muffin pan, dividing evenly among the cups.
Add in some of the pepper and spinach mixture to each cup.
Drop a couple pieces of diced pancetta into each cup. You could also use some leftover diced ham from your holiday meals.
Add in a few slices of scallion.
Top with a tablespoon or so of shredded parmesan cheese.
Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the eggs are set. The cups with “puff up” while they bake and then settle when the come out of the oven.
Serve with some fresh salsa if you like. Sprinkle with a couple extra slices of scallion.
