Easter Leftovers

So as I have don't the last few years, I cooked a big ham and all the fixin's just for me and my daddy on Easter afternoon. I can only eat leftovers for a day or two before I am over it so I end up freezing large portions of the ham for later use. But this morning I came up with this little diddy. Egg Muffins. So good and will keep in the fridge to re-heat and eat throughout the week for breakfasts and snacks. You can use whatever ingredients you have on hand- great for leftovers.

* 4 eggs
* 1/3 cup milk/half and half/similar type product
* 1/4 green scallion
* salt and pepper to taste, seasoning if desired (I used Old Bay)
* meat to taste (ham, sausage, bacon, turkey, beef, ...)
* herbs if desired
* anything else that sounds tasty like cheese or peas or spinach or asparagus or hot sauce or

Preheat oven to 375. Spritz muffin cups with non-stick spray. Add goodies (minus eggs and milk product) in muffin cups. So everything other than the eggs and milk and S and P go in the cups now. In a small bowl, mix the eggs, milk, salt and pepper (and any additional seasoning). Divide into the 6 or so cups. Fill about 3/4 full. Bake for about 30 minutes until puffy and dry in the middle. Serve hot or let cook, keep in the fridge, and reheat for future enjoyment.
