Scrambled Egg Bites & Fresh Fruit Kabobs

If you're not always in the mood for a six course meal for those 12 o'clock games, this is a great midday meal.  Bite-sized scrambled eggs and fall fruit skewers are just as satisfying. 

Bacon and Cheddar Scrambled Egg Bites
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 6 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 - 3 tbsp green onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Set the oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.  Beat eggs and milk together.  Then add bacon, green onion, cheese, salt, and pepper and mix well.  Use a small scoop and fill each muffin hole about two thirds of the way.  Bake 8-10 minutes (mine actually took a couple minutes more).  When done, let cool for a couple minutes before removing from the pan.  This should make about 30 mini egg bites.  Get creative and try different flavor combinations!

Fresh Fruit Kabobs
  • apples, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • pears, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 parts vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 part nonfat milk (almond milk would also be good!)
  • cinnamon to taste
  • skewers

Arrange the apples and pears on skewers.  For the yogurt sauce, mix two parts of no- or low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt to one part of nonfat milk.  Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.  Whisk the ingredients together and carefully pour over the skewers.
