  • Bake in the preheated oven until nuggets are half-cooked, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool until easily handled. Cut each nugget in half.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, spinach, green onions, and sun-dried tomatoes for 5 minutes. Drain excess liquid and stir in chopped bacon.

  • Beat eggs, cream, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper together in a large bowl.

  • Spoon bacon mixture into the prepared muffin cups and top each with Monterey Jack cheese. Pour egg mixture over cheese layer until each cup is nearly full. Place 4 potato nugget halves into each.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle, 20 to 25 minutes.

This was a fantastic recipe! I made it for a pot luck breakfast at work. Most of my co-workers are vegetarians so I just omitted the bacon they loved it. I recently purchased the silicone muffin pans this was definitely the ticket. They worked perfectly! I made the recipe exactly as described and it was delicious! I will definitely make this again. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I did remove the mushrooms for dietary reasons. It was ok. A little on the bland side. I will probably try one more time using items that I normally put in an omelette. They did reheat in the microwave nicely so that was nice as they were perfect for taking to work. Also it took much longer to make than it says. About 45 minutes before putting it in the oven.

I followed the directions but doubled the recipe. I used bacon and sausage with 24 eggs and filled 12 deep muffin tins not cup cake tins. Turned out great. Wife and kid's loved it and now they have yummy easy breakfast for the coming week. Will be making again soon and forever. thanks Todd the weekend breakfast cook. Read More

Easy! Would leave out the potatoes. I used sausage instead of bacon. Can mix and match depending on what ingredients you have. Very easy and good Read More

Sorry I did not care for this recipe. I thought these were dry with very little flavor. Will not make again. Read More

These were pretty good. I cooked them a few minutes too long and the eggs got dry. I also expected them to be more flavorful. I'd make them again but use more seasonings and Les time. Portability and nutrition are plus factors here also the fact you can just heat them up the next AM for convenience. Read More
