Take A Bite Out Of Breakfast

My kids love breakfast.  I do too...after lunch.  Normally, they ask for breakfast and I slide them the Cheerios.  Oh, you want something hot?  Pancakes on a stick are a fabulous invention.
I found a fairly simple breakfast recipe in a recent Cooking Light magazine (Jan./Feb. 2012).  It gave the kids something warm as well as bite size.  They have officially been dubbed "Breakfast Bites" in our house.

What You'll Need:
8 slices whole wheat white sandwich bread, crusts removed
½ cup 2% milk
4 eggs, beaten
1 green onion, chopped
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I like my super crunchy.  You can also substitute with bacon bits if you like.)
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Cooking spray

1.)   Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2.)  Lightly coat both sides of the bread with cooking spray.  Press a slice into each cup of the muffin tin.  
Bake for 10 minutes until bread is slightly toasted.
3.)  Reduce heat to 350 degrees.
4.)  Combine milk and eggs.  Divide evenly into muffin cups.  Sprinkle onions, bacon, and cheese over the cups.  
Bake for 15 minutes.
