Breakfast Egg Muffins Recipe

An egg breakfast in the morning is a great way to start your day, boost your metabolism and get a strong and lean body. (check out one of my previous posts about why eggs are king in the morning).

These delicious little dollops of joy can be cooked ahead of time, making them ideal if you’re in a rush and want a healthy meal or snack.

Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, they can eaten hot or cold. And because they are packed full of protein, amino acids and good fats, you’re sure to stay fuelled up until your next meal.

They are perfect as a post-workout snack instead of a protein shake and are also great for endurance events. They have seen me though some pretty tough challenges, all be it they get a bit squashed in my backpack along the way. Store them in a zip top sandwich bag for these kind of events to save space.

The nutritional value surpasses any supplements, powder or processed food by far. PLUS, they are so easy to make!

I wish my food picture skills were better. My kitchen is small and the lights are terrible. You’ll have to try these and see how good they look in real life.

 

Makes 12 muffins

What you need:
Frying Pan
Muffin Tray
Measuring Jug

Ingredients:
12 eggs
1 red onion
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
Large handful of baby spinach
Garlic
Coconut oil
Paprika
Salt
Pepper

Options:
Replace the veg with ½ broccoli and 1 packet of cooked flaked salmon (or cook a salmon fillet yourself)
or
Chuck in any veg you have in the fridge. Mix it up and test out other combinations.

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 200øC
2. Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry in coconut oil for 1 minute.
3. Slice the veg and add to the frying pan. Cook until soft.
4. Break the eggs into a measuring jug, whisk together with salt and pepper.
5. Add the fried vegetable mix to the egg mixture and mix together.
6. Lightly grease the muffin tin with coconut oil, olive oil or butter.
7. Pour the mixture into the muffin tin leaving about 0.5cm from the top.
8. Cook for 15-18 or until the tops are firm to touch.

As I mentioned above, these can be eaten hot or cold.
My favourite is to serve them with a crunchy walnut coleslaw or spinach, avocado and tomato salad – Yummy!

 

I LOVE:
Le Creuset 12 Cup Muffin Tin. It’s non-stick, easy to clean and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
You’ve got to love a lifetime guarantee. Plus it’s not even expensive.  You’ll thank me when you haven’t got to scrape cooked egg from the cheaper versions.

 

Happy Muffin-ing x
