Step 2: Beat the eggs thoroughly and season them according to your preference. Add the Greek yoghurt and mix well.

Step 3: Add the vegetables and turkey ham to the beaten eggs mixture. With a sauce spoon, scoop some of the mixture and place it in the muffin tray. Make sure to get a scoop full of all the ingredients.

Step 4: Fill the muffin cups ¾ and place the tray into the preheated oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
