Bacon and Swiss "Bites"

My favorite meal lately is a few of my "bites" and a scoop of my Italian Bean Salad. I ate it for dinner again last night though this "bite" version given it's breakfast-y ingredients would be especially good for breakfast with a nice fruit salad.

Shelly's Bacon & Swiss Bites

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
6 slices cooked Bacon, diced
1 teaspoon Butter
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
a few twists of Black Pepper
5 Eggs, beaten
1/3 cup Tomato, diced (I used S&W canned, drained)
1 cup Swiss, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 F. Saute onions in butter till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together. Be sure veggie mixture has cooled slightly before adding to egg mixture. Spoon (I use a small ice cream scoop) into a lightly greased mini muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until centers are firm. Makes 24.

This is very close to the original version of my "bites" that won a cooking contest for me two years ago. If you want... eliminate the oregano and replace it with some of that Hidden Valley Ranch Dry Seasoning Dressing Mix (sponsors of the contest) voila - the contest winner.Once you make these "bites" I swear you will understand why I have like 15 versions of them ;)
