With thousands of things going on in the morning you often don’t have time to make a nutritious breakfast that sets you up for the rest of the day. This month’s recipe is a healthy, easy to make, grab and go breakfast that’s packed with goodness.
- 10 slices good-quality bacon (leave bacon out if vegetarian or vegan)
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- 220 grams mushrooms, sliced
- 3 cups spinach
- 6 large eggs
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk (any milk will work)
- Ground salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 feta or goat cheese crumbles (or any cheese you like)
Step One: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add bacon slices to muffin pan, wrapping them in a circle around the edges of the tin. Bake for 15 minutes.
Step Two: While the bacon is cooking saute your veggies. In a large skillet, add in olive oil, garlic and mushrooms, saute for 5 minutes or until mushrooms cook down and begin to turn a slight golden brown. Once that happens, add in spinach and cook for another 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Set aside.
Step Three: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and almond milk. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Step Four: When bacon is done cooking, remove from oven and rearrange the slices. Most likely they will have shrunk up during baking, simply pull the slices back with a fork towards the edges so that’s there’s enough room to add in the veggies and egg mixture.
Step Five: Evenly distribute veggies between each muffin cup, then pour egg mixture in each cup filling a little more than halfway or so that there is even distribution. Sprinkle with cheese.
Step Six: Bake for 15 minutes. Once done, cool for two minutes, then run the edge of a knife around each egg cup and remove from pan. Serve with a side of avocado slices.
Makes 10 egg cups. 1 serving = 2 egg cups.
- Feel free to leave out the cheese if you want to make these dairy free
- For a new flavour: try adding in 1/2 cup diced grape tomatoes + 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella + 1/4 cup basil ribbons
- A evening version: 1/2 cup finely chopped sauteed broccoli + 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
- Any cheese or veggies should work well in these egg cups, just make sure they don’t have a lot of moisture otherwise the egg cups might get soggy (example: zucchini or really juicy tomatoes)
