    Egg and Cheese Muffins

    It’s really important to me that my children have a good breakfast with protein, and I was feeling bored with scrambled eggs. This recipe makes a dozen, but because I knew it would be a tough sell to get my kids to eat eggs with veggies (they love vegetables just not mixed into anything), I made half just egg and cheese and the other half with mushrooms and spinach for Jeff and me.
