Add salt, pepper and milk to eggs and beat. Pour egg mixture to each of the muffin cups. Fill just below the rim. The egg will rise as it cooks.

Place muffin pan in oven and cook for about 30 minutes or until the eggs are firm.

When muffins are just firming (after about 25 minutes in oven), remove muffin pan from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Place back in oven for final 5 minutes so the cheese can melt.
