Mini Morning Egg Bites

by Amie on August 24, 2012

Eggs are by far my favorite breakfast.

They’re just so darn good.

Aren’t they?

I can remember when I was a young girl and my mother taught me how to make sunny side up eggs- I thought I was so cool.

I invited my grandma over just to make ‘em for her- and they were a bit too runny and undercooked but I was still proud.

Then came the hard boiled eggs.

And deviled eggs.

And then omelets.

Then frittatas.

And egg bakes.

But just recently I thought…why not make some cute little Egg Muffins?

Actually my muffin tin was staring at me screaming please ‘use me’.

So I did.

I made this fun lil’ easy egg recipe just for you.

And me.

Because it’s perfect for the kids when they’re in a rush to catch the school bus…

And convenient for you to pop into your mouth before you head out the door for work…

(Coffee does not count as breakfast, people). I repeat, please eat something.

They’re also perfect to toss into a ziploc bag and enjoy with a dollop of guacamole when your hunger strikes at 3PM.

Do the kiddies need a little snikkity snack before soccer practice?

Hmmmmm.

How about a bite of these protein-packed babies?

A little bit of egg, some fresh herbs, carrots, cherry tomatoes and your all set.

Like I said, the key word here is Easy.

O, and they’re pretty gosh darn tasty too.

I’ve been making something similar for while. I change them up every time with different veggies…my favorite mix was spinach, zucchini, carrots and shallots. Yours look amazing too. Looks like I will be making a batch this weekend! Thanks.

Made these for breakfast and loved them! Subbed a few things … baby arugula for the spinach, and added a bit of feta and cheddar, and cherry tomatoes … yummy!! Thanks much, a great addition to the lineup and the leftovers made a good portable lunch :).

Love eggs! I eat so many it may be a problem…new studies saying egg yolks aren’t good for you? Hate studies! :) Also – are the badges on your site up to date? I just clicked on a “what’s on my menu” honest cooking one on the site but it said the link was broken…

Oh Amie, I’m all distraught. I’ve experiencing a sorrid mix of leaky gut, candida, inflammation in gut and a tremedous amount of anxiety/constipation . My doctors are of no help and I can’t afford any other services. I feel like everything is hopeless. I’ve read some of Tina’s site at carrots n’cake and she is undertaking SCD, and a friend of mine mentioned folowing a meal plan as suggested by Dr. McComb or paleo-esque. But I can’t bear to do that, neither do I have the time.

The very distraught thing is that I am unable to afford any of the supplements that I think would truly help me. If I dont do a real legitimate cleanse and if I cannot afford supplements, can I still heal myself? Please give me some hope because I need to know that if I do baby things all will not be lost. I simply don’t have money for supplements or cleanes or radical diets or programs. I just need some hope that I still heal myself somehow :(

Leah,
I am so sorry to hear you are in pain and feeling sick. I was there just last year and dealt with the pain for so long and felt like no one was helping me. I remember waking up everyday working with 20 doctors all from different hospitals and none of them were helping me or were even trying to help me besides put me on pain killers. Keep your head up and stay positive. You will find an answer; I will surely keep you in my thoughts. Enjoy your evening and get some rest!

I found your website quite by accident when looking for a recipe and boy am I glad I did. Having recently started on a Low Carb diet to help with controlling blood sugar I have struggled to find good (and simple) recipes that had options for people who struggle with wheat intolerance. I am not allergic to wheat and I don’t have celiac — I just find that if I keep my recipes as wheat free as possible that I have less inflammation and less problems with my Chron’s. It is tough having Diabetes, Lupus, and several other medical issues and trying to feed myself. Finding sites like yours does help.
I love eggs and eat them daily. These muffins look amazing. I will be trying them in the morning. Too bad I don’t have any Chia seeds. For now, until I can shop I will be subbing in Sunflower seeds. But I am sure I will try the Chia seeds soon. Thanks for all you do. I enjoyed reading your story.
I was told for 2 years that I had “it is all in your head-it is” before they diagnosed the Lupus. Later they told me my pancreas quit working and I needed insulin.
Hang in there.
Hugs,
Kay

I’m an egg gal, too…scrambled, sunny-side up, scrambled. Pretty much any way I can get them.

These egg muffins would be perfect for busy school mornings!

I agree! Thanks so much; they’re a fun back to school morning treat! Have a great Sunday!
