Ingredientsmuffin tin egg recipe

Diced up onion

Diced up red & green pepper

A handful of mushrooms

Baby spinach leaves

Splash of Milk

Cheese– of your choosing

Garlic

Salt

Depending on how many egg muffins you’re making, you use 1 egg per muffin container.

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the peppers, onion, mushrooms, spinach and garlic and set aside.
  2. Whisk eggs until beaten, add a splash of milk (this makes fluffier eggs), and sprinkle in some salt. Pour into a measuring cup and set aside.

Pro tip: Using a measuring cup makes it easier to be poured into a muffin tray.

  1. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium flame and once it is hot enough, drizzle some olive oil into the pan. Sauté the peppers and onion till they are soft before adding spinach and mushrooms. Allow it to cook for 2 minutes before adding garlic, and let the vegetables cook for another 30 seconds.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F. Make sure to grease the muffin tray so that they’ll pop right out of the tray when you take them out of the oven.
  3. Drop the vegetables and cheese into the muffin tray. It’s easiest when you drop in the veggies and then sprinkle the cheese on top. Pour the eggs on top of ingredients.

Pro tip: When filling the tin with the eggs make sure to leave about a centimeter or two from the top, because the eggs tends to rise.

  1. Place them in the oven and they should be ready in around 15 minutes. This differs per oven, for instance, mine tends to cook quicker. Make sure to watch the eggs cook and when they’re done they should rise like muffins would and will look a little golden brown.

Enjoy: Pair these eggs with a few pieces of toast, some bacon, a glass of juice or a cup of coffee and you’ll be sure to kick start your morning! What’s great about these is that you can prepare them for the entire week and heat them up for breakfast every morning. No more breakfast hassle or even skipping breakfast.

Lunch– Chicken, Avocado & Egg Pretzel Bun Sandwich

This recipe takes you no more than 10 minutes and is one you won’t be able to stop making. It’s quick, simple, and extremely delicious.

Ingredients

½ avocadopretzel bun egg sandwich

1 egg

1 chicken breast– or any meat of your choosing (also tastes great without meat for those vegetarians 🙂 )

Handful of spinach leaves

1 slice of mozzarella cheese– or any cheese of your choosing

All of your favorite sandwich toppings

 

Instructions

  1. Pre-cook the chicken in the oven before making sandwich. We love to prep a lightly salted and garlic chicken breast.
  2. Prepare the egg for the sandwich however you prefer. For this recipe, we like to cook the egg sunny side up, which is pretty simple. Crack the egg in a frying pan and watch it cook. The egg white will begin to harden and once it does, it’ll be ready to be put on the sandwich.
  3. Thinly slice the avocado so it’ll span the entire sandwich.
  4. Chop up your spinach so that it’s in smaller leaves.
  5. Cut your pretzel bun to the perfect size and you’re ready to put your sandwich together
  6. Place all of the ingredients on your sandwich and lastly, top it with the sunny side up egg.
