Servings
Ingredients

1 each  butter flavored cooking spray
0 1/2 cup  fresh chopped red onion
1 each  large garlic cloves
0.3333 cup  fat free milk
6 each  egg whites
2 tsp  dijon mustard
1 pinch  salt
1 pinch  black pepper
6 each  whole wheat tortillas
12 oz  reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
4 each  asparagus spears, fresh, small
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mist 12 cups of a standard size, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Spray a small, nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place it over medium heat. Toss in the onion and garlic. Cook, mixing occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until almost tender. Taking the pan off the heat, place to the side for later.
  4. In a large measuring cup, blend the milk, egg whites, mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk to mix well. Set aside.
  5. With a 3 ¾ round cookie cutter, cut circles out of each tortilla. Fit each into one of the 12 cups in the prepared tin, taking care not to tear the circles.
  6. Distribute the cheese, asparagus, and reserved onion combination between the cups.
  7. Add the egg white mixture evenly into each cup until it is three-quarters filled. (If a small amount is left over, get rid of it.)
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the egg-white mixture has set and the tortillas are evenly crisped around the edges. Serve right away.
