  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
  • In the bottom of the muffin cups, layer the cheese, then the garlic and scallions, and then the egg mixture to fill each muffin cup about 3⁄4 full. If you want, you can stir them up a bit with a fork to incorporate the eggs with the other ingredients.
