Egg ‘Muffins’

great for lunch-boxes

BATCH-COOKING
GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE (depending on fillings)

Frittatas are a bit of a favourite quick and nutritious meal in my home and I have recommended them to busy clients for many years. You can make a large one in a pan and have slices for snacks or lunches but these mini frittatas, made in a muffin tin are also handy and little ones love them too.

Eggs are a nutritious choice for me, providing protein, healthy fats, vitamins, particularly vitamin D, and minerals like iron. This kind of breakfast or lunch will help to keep you full until the next meal due to the protein and fats so its great for active and busy people. Pretty much any filling goes…  all you need to do is whisk eggs in a bowl.

 


INGREDIENTS

You’ll need a muffin / cupcake baking tray

12 eggs
coconut or olive oil for greasing

Try these fillings or create your own using seasonal produce:
Sundried tomato, chilli & paprika
beetroot & feta

STEP-BY-STEP

Choose your fillings and put a small teaspoon in the bottom of each muffin tray then spoon over the whisked egg until they are just filled.
