Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium; add bell pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and golden brown. Remove from heat.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in sour cream, salt and pepper sauce. Stir in cooked onion and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon onion mixture evenly into mini muffin cups.

Expert Tips

Try using Monterey Jack or mozzarella in place of the Cheddar cheese.

Be patient when caramelizing the onions. If you rush them, they won't taste as sweet.
