Egg Muffins - My Breakfast of Champions

This breakfast recipe is based on one that is in Oxygen magazine. I've modified it to suit my taste. I usually prepare the vegetable mix on Saturday night and combine it with the eggs on Sunday morning (my weekend is Friday & Saturday) and then pop it into the oven. By the time I'm ready to leave the house, it's ready and I've got breakfast prepared for the week. I eat them cold (after I finish my morning workout). They're filling and tasty. I eat this pretty much every single morning during the week. 





Ingredients
2 whole eggs
2 cups of egg whites
1 zucchini diced
1 1/2 tomatoes diced
8 mushrooms diced
1 orange bell pepper diced
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
dash salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger powder
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions
1. Sauté the vegetables in the olive oil; add spices and a dash of water to let it all mix together; sauté for about 10 minutes
2. In a bowl, mix the 2 whole eggs plus the egg whites together
3. Add in the vegetable mix (after letting the vegetables cool for a while - about 15-20 minutes)
4. Pour into lined muffin pans (spray the muffin liners w/a non-stick spray); bake for 30-35 minutes at 200 degrees C

I eat 3 muffins with half an avocado and 1 tablespoon of walnuts every morning for breakfast during the week.

  1. I admire the way you are able to get avocados in so many meals. I try, but seldom buy them ready for slicing. I usually have to wait several days and then eat them all within a day of each other.

  4. Awesome. I'm gonna try these. I eat hard boiled eggs every morning. It would be nice to switch it up!

  6. Ooo, those look great! I need to try that out. Maybe I'll make them for when my parents come back. They might like not cooking breakfast for a few days.
