    8 ounces ground beef
  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add meat and salt. Stir to combine.
    9 large eggs, 1 teaspoon salt
  • Divide the mixture evenly into the muffin tins. Fill each well ¾ full. Bake for 20 minutes until eggs set.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Release by running a knife around the edge of each muffin. Pop out and continue cooling on a wire rack or serve. Enjoy leftovers cold or reheat in the oven before serving.
