Bacon Egg & Cheese Muffins

I was obsessed with these babies for months! They are the perfect weekday breakfast. You can make a batch of them on Sunday and then you are good to go for the rest of the week, just reheat in the microwave.

I tried to keep the ingredients healthy. I used turkey bacon, egg whites, and low fat cheese.

First, mix the potatoes with some spices. Then, in a greased cupcake/muffin tray, mole the potatoes into little cups in each of the cupcake slots. Meanwhile, cook up your turkey (or regular) bacon.

Once the bacon is done, chop into small pieces. Add egg, bacon and cheese to each potato cup. Bake @ 375 for 15 – 20 minutes. Enjoy!
