Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Melt butter in a non-stick skillet. Sauté the red pepper, onion and sliced mushrooms for three minutes. Add cooked chopped chicken and stir to heat through – about 2 more minutes.

  3. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and cool slightly. Beat eggs and combine with milk and half of the shredded cheese. Stir into the cooled chicken and vegetable mixture.

  4. Coat a 6-cup non-stick muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups. Pour egg mixture into greased muffin cups, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with the other half of remaining shredded cheese.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until egg is set. Remove from the oven and let stand to cool five minutes.

  6. Serve with the toasted whole wheat English muffins.
