These are so cute. Very easy to make up. I finely chopped my zucchini and I used a little red onion instead of the peppers. I also omitted the cooking the veggies step. Very easy and will make again.
These are very cute and very tasty. I left out the butter and cooked my veggies in some cooking spray. I used cooked brown rice and needed an additional egg and 1/4 cup additional milk to cover my rice mix. I think broccoli cut up fine could be used instead of the zuchinni as well. A nice breakfast or light lunch. I did spray my muffin tins but next time I'd spray them more!
