Day 1109 - Breakfast Muffins

The all day breakfast

I was cruising through Facebook yesterday and given my girl crush and subsequent stalking of Tori Spelling I happened upon her Little Maven by Tori Spelling Facebook page.  On it was a recipe for "build your own breakfast muffins" which I promptly printed and took straight to the kitchen.




I have been looking for alternative snack options for my kids. You know, the healthier kind. Something that doesn't come in a packet and isn't full of preservatives, flavour enhancers and colours.  When I saw these breakfast muffins I thought "bingo". Replace "breakfast" with "all day" and we've got a winner.

Breakfast Muffins are simply made up of left over veges in the fridge and bunch of eggs
Yes, indeed we have got a winner.  I whipped these up in no time and then put them in the fridge (in the muffin pan) to set before taking them out and putting them in a container. My muffins* are made up of shredded bacon, capsicum, tomatoes, zuccini and onion. Full recipe below. Since then Darby has had one for afternoon tea, breakfast this morning and is taking them cold for lunch at school today.

You place your chopped ingredients in first, then just pour your egg mixture.

Thanks Tori and friends.  And thank you breakfast muffins** ....



The Recipe
Ingredients:
8 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp baking powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Vareity of your family' favourite chopped vegges, breakfast meats and shredded cheese

Direction:
Preheat oven to 170
Whisk eggs, milk, oil, baking powder and salt/pepper
Spray a 12 muffin tin with cooking spray
Fill the muffin cups with favourite family chopped toppings
Pour egg mixture over filled muffin cups
Bake 15-20 minutes.
Cool and enjoy!

NB: Can be served warm, or put tray in fridge to set before removing from muffin tray if you would prefer to keep these treats cooled for later.  Great to eat hot or cold. 

* They're called breakfast muffins but probably more resemble a mini quiche. 

** Even as a Deep Fried woman of the world, it still freaks me out that I dare to give cooking or foodie tips ....
