Food Day Friday – Egg Muffins

So today I decided to experiment with breakfast. I’m always looking for new options for protein and veggies in the morning to share with clients.

Have you seen the egg muffins? I thought that would be a great way to get in eggs and veggies.

I started with a basic recipe online but adapted it for my interests. That’s what experimentation is about, right?

I made three different flavors:

  • spinach & tomato with pizza flavored herbs
  • mushroom and minced garlic
  • sweet peppers and onion 

I also wanted to bake them with and without the muffin papers to see if one way was better than another. My preference…go without the papers!

The end result: two thumbs up! 👍🏼👍🏼

I would make some revisions to improve them, but they are very easy and delicious!

Some suggestions to be aware of as you try your flavor combinations.

  • Mix the herbs/spices in instead of just sprinkling on top. You want that flavor throughout each egg muffin.
  • Think about the veggies and if adding them raw is the best choice. I would probably prefer my peppers, mushrooms, and onions cooked a bit before I baked them. Again…just MY preference.
  • I used some whole eggs and some egg whites. Determine the best egg mix for you and your goals. May take a few tries before you get the consistency exactly right.
  • You can also add meat to them, but I was focusing on veggies this morning.

Here are a couple of links to get you started.

This is where I started and made my own changes.
