  Butter 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Small, chopped
  Eggs 8
  Skim milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Freshly chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Shredded swiss cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Bacon slices 4 , cooked crispy and chopped

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F and position a rack in the center of the oven. Coat two 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter until foam subsides. Add the onion and cook 7 minutes, or until tender and golden.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and parsley. Set aside.

Add a pinch of cheese, onions and bacon to the bottom of each muffin cup.

Fill each muffin tin until the batter just reaches the top of each muffin cup.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the muffin tops are puffed and golden.
