Breakfast can be a challenge for me sometimes. I have a piece of bacon or sausage and some fruit, like melon, or a bowl of strawberries with some fresh cream poured over, and a cup of coffee. In winter it’s usually oatmeal, again with fruit, maple syrup and cream. Of course eggs are in there too, but today I got tired of the over-easy version and got a little creative.

I love a muffin in the morning, but I try to avoid flour if I can. And I’m not a fan of gluten free flours really, I don’t think some of the substitutes are all that healthy…. so this is basically an egg beaten with salt and pepper and poured into a muffin tin. Pretty simple!

I added quite a few things to the “recipe”- whatever I had in the fridge really….leftover broccoli, chopped kale, a few cherry tomatoes and of course cheese. Gotta have cheese – pretty much on everything!

So give these a try, they are great for anytime you want a snack, packed in lunch boxes and for traveling, and of course breakfast, still warm from the oven.

Here’s the “recipe”

12 eggs, one for each muffin cup

salt and pepper

vegetables, either left over of fresh

goat cheese, cheddar, feta, Parmesan-as much or little as you like-I used a heaping TBL on top of each one.

Pine nuts or any type of seed, sesame or pumpkin, etc.

Minced garlic, fresh herbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 12 cup muffin tin or line with paper liners.

Beat the eggs. If you’re making different kinds, I suggest separating some of the eggs into different bowls for the different ingredients ( like 2 eggs with kale and cheddar, and 2 eggs with tomatoes, broccoli and goat cheese, etc. I find it easier to pour into the cups this way). Or just beat them all at once, then add the veggies.

Add salt and pepper to taste, remembering if you add cheese it may be salty already.

Add the veggies, then sprinkle on the cheese and seeds, etc.

Pour into muffin tin and bake about 30 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean.

And that’s it. You can get creative here, of course, add some cooked bacon, a little cooked sausage, some sun dried tomatoes, herbs, pretty much anything goes!
