Muffin Tin Eggs
Posted by terrepruitt on July 25, 2016
I am sure you have seen these eggs baked in muffin tins on the internet, too, just like the Caprese Bites. And just like that yummy appetizer I thought I could do this without looking at a recipe. I mean, it seems so easy. It is. I am sure you can do it, too. But sometimes it is nice to have tips and advise. Experience from those who have come before. I thought I would need an egg per muffin cup, but I did not. I ended up making eight mini muffins and four regular sized muffins with 6 eggs. So this really isn’t a recipe with actual amounts of things because that is up to you. But it is an idea of things and some tips.
Muffin Tin Eggs
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Clean the broccoli and rough cut it into bite sized pieces. Grate some cheese.
Crack your eggs into a bowl big enough for you to mix them and add a little milk. Mix up the eggs and milk. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Any seasonings you would like. I used garlic powder (of course).
If you are using metal muffin tins then you probably want to spray them with some cooking spray or put some oil or butter on them. Whatever you would normally for muffins. I used the silicon kind and they don’t need spray.
Place a few pieces of broccoli into each muffin cup. Then add the grated cheese into the tin. Then pour the eggs on top. Only fill it about half way.
Place the muffin “tin” in the oven and let it cook for about 12 minutes. Check the eggs. Cook them to your liking. Some people like “wet” eggs and others like them dry. So you get to decide.
As I said I made two different sized muffin tin eggs. I imagine this would make at least eight regular sized muffins or twelve to sixteen mini ones.
These are like scrambled eggs except you don’t have to do all the work every morning. You can make them on Sunday evening and then have a quick breakfast everyday all week. They are also like scrambled eggs in that you can put whatever you want in them. Whatever you would eat in a scramble put it in the tin. Somethings you might want to or need to cook before putting them in the tin. Meat would need to be cooked prior to putting in the tin for baking with the eggs. And we all like our veggies done differently so you might even want to cook some before putting it in the tin to bake.
I want to use mushrooms next time. I would cook them before putting them in the muffins. What would you put in yours?
