Mini Breakfast Ramekins

Eggs and mexican on a weekend morning goes great together and here's my simple and tasty mexican breakfast ramekins with the stuff you probably will find in your pantry already!

Ingredients:
Eggs - 3
Egg whites - 3
Salsa - 1 cup
Milk - 4 Tbsp
deli turkey slices - 4
Cheese, shredded - 1/2 cup (any variety)
Roasted peppers - 1 cup
Roasted chillies/Jalapenos - 1/4 cup (optional)
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Crushed red pepper, to taste

Servings: 4 (6oz) ramekins

Method: 
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Take small ramekins, or any size according to your number of servings and spray on some non-stick cooking spray. 
  3. Beat together eggs,egg whites, milk, salt and pepper.
  4. Evenly distribute the following from bottom to top in layers in each of the ramekins.
      • Salsa
      • Roasted red peppers
      • Roasted chillies/JalapeƱos
      • Smoked turkey breast deli slice(s)
      • Egg mixture
      • Cheese
  5. Bake in the oven for about 25 mins for 6oz ramekins and more if you're using a larger one until a fork comes out clean and the top browns to golden. Serve hot. 
To my surprise, this was one of my little picky eater's favorite breakfasts :)
And this is a perfect breakfast if you have a some time in your hand since baking takes about 30 mins. But you can get absolutely creative with this dish and add any kind of meat or layering that you like.
