Cheesy Breakfast Muffins Recipe


  1. Nonstick cooking spray
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 1/2 cups light mozzarella cheese, shredded
    1 1/2 cups reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
    3 cups frozen broccoli, thawed and chopped
    7 cups whole-grain bread, cubed
    1/2 cup water


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Coat 12 standard-sized muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cheese, broccoli, bread, and water.
  4. Gradually add onion powder and garlic powder while mixing until spices are evenly distributed.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes, so the bread can soak up the moisture.
  6. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, portion the bread mixture into the muffin tins.
  7. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
