make Egg Bites

Got a simple, savory recipe for ya!

Inspired by this recipe by Liz ofI <3 Vegetables, as well as a tweet from Caitlin a while back, I finally mixed up some eggs, vegs, and cheese to bake in the oven... into muffins.  And don't be afraid to eat the whole egg.Nicole explained yesterdaywhy yolks are good for you!

My little egg bites contained four eggs with chopped spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat cheese.  You can also use diced onion, pepper, other vegetables, anything that strikes your fancy.

I've gotta say, though, I really enjoyed my flavor combo :)

Pour evenly into greased/oiled (mini) muffin tin and stick it in the oven at 350 for about 10-12 minutes.

They come out perfect.

Basically, they're bite size frittatas!

4 eggs makes 12 of these little guys, so I had half immediately and saved the rest for later...

and they were delicious cold, right out of the fridge!  Or you can heat them up again.  A quick and easy make-ahead breakfast, snack, whatever you like.

The deal is, as I understand it, that you simply take your plain yogurt, some uncooked rolled oats, and whatever mix-ins you want (chopped nuts, dried fruit, etc.), and leave it in the fridge overnight, and, like magic, it will be breakfast in the morning.  Well, seems pretty obvious, no?

Well, I gave it a try.  This is the result.

Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1/2 cup oats/nut mix
- 1/4 cup dried fruit (above, raisins. Also try bits of prunes, or apricots, etc)

Other tips:
- mix in 1/4 cup "milk" or water to thin it out. (I used Almond Breeze almond milk, see below.)
- add a bit (a tsp-Tbsp?) of sweetener (hon…
