Tips

  • Use room-temperature eggs. In this way, the mixture gets a smooth consistency. The gelatinous consistency of cold eggs can cause clumping.
  • You can also use vegetables such as broccoli and potatoes instead of spinach for these egg muffins.
  • If using mushrooms or a similarly water-heavy vegetable, be sure to drain the water. Otherwise, your muffins may be watery.
  • You can add meat to this dish if you wish, but we recommend avoiding red meat. Opt for cooked chicken or fish instead.
  • Be sure to grease the muffin molds well so that the egg muffins do not stick to the pan. Alternatively, you can use a silicone muffin pan.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 ˚F. Grease an 8-muffin pan with half of the oil or cooking spray and place the tin in the oven to preheat.
  2. Add the remaining oil to a pan and heat it. When the oil is slightly shimmering, add the spinach, peppers, and spring onions. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onions are translucent.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, smoked paprika, and half of the cheddar cheese. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Add the vegetables to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the muffin cups.
  5. Sprinkle grated cheese on top.
  6. Bake for about 15–17 minutes, until the muffins are golden brown.
  7. Serve it warm.

How to Serve Egg Muffins?

We recommend serving these egg muffins with a light salad. A salad that you will prepare with spinach, beans, nuts, and a red bell pepper will be ideal for this recipe. To do this, simply wash these ingredients before adding them to a bowl. Of course, you will need to remove the inside of the bell pepper and chop it finely. You can flavor the salad with a sweet vinaigrette. To do this, add a tablespoon of fruit jelly or jam to a small bowl and add one tablespoon each of olive oil and vinegar.

Alternatively, you can serve these egg muffins as part of breakfast.
