• 7 eggs
• ½ cup plain yogurt

1 Preheat oven to 350F.
2 In a skillet,add the olive oil and sauté your peppers and mushrooms.
3 Add your spinach and turn off the heat. Mix the spinach around until it's wilted.
4 In a bowl, whisk your eggs and yogurt. When they are mixed well, add half of the cheese.
5 Fold in the pepper mixture until well combined.
6 Spray the inside of the jars with cooking spray and then add the egg mixture. Make sure to leave ½ inch to 1 inch from the top because they will rise and you don't want it to spill over.
7 Top each of the jars with the remaining cheese.
8 Place jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or unitl the top is firm.
9 Let cool and then add your lid and store in the refrigerator or eat.
Note: These are ½ pint jars. If you use larger jars you will have to use more filling and it may take longer.
