  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • Non-stick cooking spray or olive oil for greasing


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare a muffin tin by greasing it with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil.
  2. Blanch the Broccoli: Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and blanch for about 1-2 minutes, just until they are bright green and slightly tender. Drain and quickly rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with a towel.
  3. Mix the Eggs: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined. Stir in the salt, black pepper, and garlic powder if using.
  4. Add Broccoli and Cheese: Add the blanched broccoli and shredded cheddar cheese to the egg mixture. Stir to distribute the ingredients evenly.
  5. Fill the Muffin Tin: Pour the egg mixture into the greased muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Ensure each cup has a good distribution of broccoli and cheese.
  6. Bake: Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg bites are set and lightly golden on top.
  7. Cool and Serve: Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the egg bites cool for a few minutes. Use a knife or a spatula to gently loosen them from the tin. Serve warm.
