I saw this idea online about making savoury breakfast muffins in advance for the week. All breakfast would then entail was to take one (or two) of these babies out of the fridge and pop them into the microwave and tadaah… Breakfast! The idea was captivating. So I tried it.
Lots of recipes out there with variations of ingredients but the main one is egg. It’s basically a muffin-shaped omelette and you can choose whatever you want in it. I’m hungry just writing about it!
My choice for this maiden voyage were turkey slices, spinach and mushrooms. The problem with the site I got this recipe from was that it didn’t specify amounts of salt and pepper. It’s a personal choice, I suppose, but it would be helpful to have a rough idea. Absolutely no offence to the author.
Anyway, here is the basic recipe from which I built on. I think.
I based my muffins or quiche on the recipe but played around with it and added my choice of ingredients. It was fun to make and the anticipation of having breakfast so conveniently ready in a neat package was a delight.
I may have used too much oil because my muffins turned out rather oily every morning when I heated them up. They were rich in flavour. Quite filling too with a cup of coffee. On hindsight, I wish I had used liners instead of going au naturel. Would have been much less stressful removing the muffins from the pan. When will I ever learn?
Would definitely make these again, maybe using that intriguing quinoa recipe. Definitely makes breakfast a doddle.
