Turkey, Spinach and Mushroom Breakfast Muffins

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.


Gorgeous green spinach
Turkey slices, mushrooms and diced onions (I suspect I went a little overboard with the onions)
Sautee onions with mushrooms
Chop the turkey slices into precise uniform small sizes. No variation will be tolerated
Add the spinach to the sauteed onions and mushrooms
To a mixing bowl, add 4 large eggs
Add the cheese to the whipped eggs along with some salt and pepper. Just guess like I did!
Pour the mixture into the muffin tray and top them up with more cheese
Here’s a close up. Beautiful?
Fresh out of the oven. Just look at that yummie melted cheese…
Forgot to say, spray the muffin tray generously with oil before you scoop the filling in. Alternatively, I suppose liners could be used too


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.

The verdict:

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.
