I’m terrible at having breakfast, and have been as long as I can remember. I don’t get hungry before about 10am, at the earliest, normally, which isn’t great for my girlies as they need to eat well before that. I decided to make these muffin tin recipes in bulk, freeze them and thaw as needed. They’re gorgeous warm, or cold – although not frozen! – which makes them ideal for lunch box snacks, trips out, or picnic food. They’re also highly adaptable.
This is not a free-from recipe. It contains eggs, gluten, meat and dairy, but is very easily adaptable.
Makes about 12
Preheat oven to 180C/ 325F
- 3 round whole wheat wraps (or alternative)
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetables: spinach, chives, corn, or any other vegetable that won’t give off too much liquid, like tomatoes
- bacon, sausage, mince, chicken etc to taste
- cheese to taste
1. Cut smaller circles out of the wraps using a cookie cutter or tinned food can. I get about 3 rounds out of a wrap.
2. Place the round in a greased muffin tin
3. Put a small spoon of meat and a small spoon of vegetables into each round
4. In a separate bowl, vigorously mix the eggs, adding any seasoning, such as chives or other herbs, salt, and pepper.
5. Using a large spoon, scoop the egg mix into each ‘case’, covering the other ingredients, but making sure it doesn’t over flow.
6. Top with the cheese.
7. Place in a oven for 20 minutes.
8. Remove, cool to edible, and enjoy, or cool completely and freeze.
We’ve tried various options: cheese and bacon, and cheese,bacon,onion and chives, and next on our list is ricotta and spinach. What fillings would you try?
