Being on Slimming World means that you need to be really organised when it comes to food. This is something that I always fail on as meal planning is something I’ve just not got to grips with. With 5.45am wake ups I need something quick and easy for breakfast. These Breakfast Egg Muffins are perfect for when you are in a hurry! I’ve seen recipes for egg muffins and decided to make my own. Some people add milk or cheese to their ones but these are dairy free. As well as being syn free these are the perfect grab and go breakfast!
It is really easy to make these breakfast egg muffins. They can be stored in the fridge for a few days or even frozen and reheated if required. You can also eat them cold but I prefer them eaten warm. Don’t over heat them though as they can go a bit rubbery! You can also add in whatever you like to them; bits of bacon or ham, chicken or keep them vegetarian by just adding veg. If you want to add cheese to them remember and use it either out of your Hex A allowance or syn them.
This makes enough for 10 breakfast muffins
8 Medium Eggs
2 Bacon Medallions finely chopped
2 Mushrooms finely chopped
A few Spinach leaves
Yellow Pepper finely chopped
Salt and Pepper
Muffin Cases (Silicone ones work better)
Heat your oven to 180°C
Spray your frying pan with Frylight and gently heat
Add in your bacon, mushroom and pepper and fry until soft
Break eggs into a bowl and whisk until the white and the yolk are completely mixed through, season with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
Tear up your spinach leaves and place in the bottom of each muffin case then add in a teaspoon of the bacon mix into each one too.
Pour the whisked egg into the muffin cases (but leave some space at the top as they rise and you will end up with baked egg on your oven tray, yep that happened to me) and add your chopped tomatoes on top.
Place into your pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until they are cooked.
These breakfast egg muffins are not just for people on Slimming World diets. They are packed with protein, gluten free and are low carb so are suitable for people that are Paleo too. You can eat these on the go or as part of a bigger breakfast. Have them with baked beans and dry fried mushrooms, grilled tomatoes for speed food for a filling breakfast.
