Savory little egg muffins with turkey bacon, sauteed spinach, and shredded cheese

Image

Lately, my idea of a Sunday morning well spent is to incorporate baking with pajamas, i.e., “Baking in Pajamas”.  There is nothing better than sleeping in an extra hour on Sunday, lounging in bed until you decide it is time to start your day, and then meandering into the kitchen to make something tasteful and delightful for breakfast/lunch.  This is the first recipe that I am posting to my “Baking in Pajamas” series.
