Breakfast Egg & Meat Cups

5-7 strips center cut bacon or turkey bacon, or 1/4 lb turkey sausage
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 small head broccoli, finely chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
10 eggs, lightly beaten
dash of milk
pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar and mozzarella or whatever you prefer)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray 2 6-cup muffin tins (or silicone trays) with cooking spray.
In 10" saute' pan, brown meat. Remove to paper towels to cool slightly and drain.
In same pan, using a little of the reserved fat, saute' veggies until soft and onions are translucent.
Remove veggies to Small Batter Bowl, and stir in cooked meat. Divide mixture evenly among 12 muffin cups.
Beat eggs, adding a little bit of milk to lighten them up. Add pepper to tasted, can add salt if using turkey sausage (bacon will be salty enough). Pour eggs over filling, fill each cup 2/3 full. Top each cup with one tomato slice, if using. Sprinkle cheese over each cup.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set. Let rest 5 minutes before serving. If freezing, freeze individually on a cookie sheet, then put into a resealable bag to store.
