While I know that breakfast is an important meal, I admit that I often have a difficult time eating a good breakfast. I’m usually hustling out the door to work or an exercise activity without a lot of time to make something healthy. My typical meal is grabbing a granola bar and coffee that I can eat at my desk or in the car.
But I’m trying to get better about what I eat. So I was happy to discover a new dish for easy to make egg muffins. The eggs provide good protein and the extra ingredients help fill me up. The size makes them easy to pop in the microwave to heat.
I’ll provide the basic recipe below but you can use any ingredients that you want! Make all vegetable, add some meat or bake with just eggs. Here’s the recipe:
12 large eggs
1/2 cup red peppers, chopped
1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup turkey pepperoni, finely sliced (optional)
1/2 cup bacon bits (optional)
Salt, pepper (or other seasonings) to taste
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Break eggs into mixing bowl and whisk until combined. Add ingredients to eggs and mix well. Season to taste.
Coat muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Pour egg mixture evenly into 12 muffin cups (I use a 1/3 measuring cup for easy filling). Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.
Place remaining egg muffins in sealed container and refrigerate. Enjoy!
