  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil or coat 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Whisk until well combined. Stir in the cheese, quinoa, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and basil as desired until well combined.

  3. Use a ¼-cup measuring cup to divide the mixture evenly into the prepared muffin cups.

  4. Bake until the eggs are set, 16 to 18 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving. (Refrigerate leftovers up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)


  • 10 large eggs

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
