  2. Grease a silicone muffin tray with cooking spray.
  3. In a blender, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, and heavy cream. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the Gruyère, Monterey Jack, bacon, spinach, and red bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
  6. Place the muffin tray in a large baking dish. Fill the baking dish with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the muffin tray.
  7. Carefully place the baking dish in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the egg bites are set and slightly golden on top.
