1 cup grated loosely packed Gouda or Gruyere cheese

Set the muffin tin in the roasting pan, divide egg mixture evenly among 12 cups (about 1/4 cup each). Top each cup with chunky-crumbled bacon. Pour boiling water between muffin tins and roasting pan to create a bath.
Carefully! place this in the oven on the middle rack and cook for about 30-40 minutes. Remove when slightly brown and no longer runny in the middle. Remove the muffin tin from the hot bath and let cool for about 5 minutes. Remove the egg bites to a plate and serve with fresh fruit or freeze for another morning.
