This week’s H-E-B in store Combo Loco Deal (Aug 17th to 30th) is Buy Egg Beaters (15-16 oz) and get H-E-B Muesli (13.5 oz) free with in store coupon.

Thus, this week’s Secret Ingredient Recipe Challenge was Egg Beaters. I’ve seen Egg Beaters in the store for a while, but never bought them. This gave me the perfect excuse.

I decided to make my favorite quick and easy egg dish (besides Migas), baked mini Egg *muffins*. Egg Beaters are perfect for these!

I cooked up 2 slices of bacon and 2 oz of hot sausage to add to my dish, pulled out my bag of mixed cheese and went to town.

I sprayed my mini muffin tin with PAM, filled 12 cups 3/4 full with regular Egg Beaters into which I crumbled up the bacon and topped with a sprinkle of cheese and a couple passes with my pepper grinder; the other 12 cups I filled 3/4 full with Southwestern Style Egg beaters and then put some crumbled hot sausage and cheese and again, a few passes with my pepper grinder.

Bake for about 13 minutes in a 375 F oven

While the Mini Egg *muffins* were baking, I sliced up oranges, cooked some more bacon and toasted some whole grain bread.

Once the Egg cups were ready I plated the meal and set it on the table, as I was plating a dish for photographing (my family is so patient)

I heard; “Mom, look at me”

As I turned back to my dish, giggling, I saw this:

They are working TOGETHER against me, y’all –

I’m so proud :-)

This meal came together easily in under 30 minutes and was delicious, I love the mini egg *muffins* because they’re the perfect size for little hands and mouths.

I usually add onions, garlic, peppers and spices to mine and Nathan’s eggs so the Southwestern Style Egg Beaters were absolutely perfect and much faster than me doing it all myself.

The kids LOVED their bacon, egg, cheese muffins – my daughter is excited to try making her own scrambled eggs with no eggshells in them with the original Egg Beaters, and when I told them they could even use them to make their favorite bacon and egg tacos — oooh buddy, you’d have thought I told them they won the lottery :-)

    I love the look of these ‘muffins’ and they are so wholesome too. Thank you for sharing another wonderful recipe, and for hosting! I will go and try to vote for you – sometimes these things don’t let me cause I live in the UK, but I will try :) Great recipe!

      Thanks, Crystal. They are so easy, especially with the Egg Beaters. Hope y’all do try them and I’m definitely looking into a Panini Press now!

    Oh, do you know how much I love it when I read a blog that talks about HEB??? :) We use their egg beaters all the time. Thanks for the combo deal heads up!

    Mmmmm yummy! I so wish the wee ones could/would eat eggs like this because I would love to have this for MY breakfast. Hmmm if I don’t tell them they’re eggs, do you think they’d notice?
