These egg breakfast muffins are packed with good stuff. These can be made ahead of time which makes them egg-cellent as grab-n-go meal.
Meal prep is one of the toughest things you’ll have to go through when you are on a Whole-30 program. I usually prepare my meals during the weekend or twice a week (and I stay in the kitchen longer than before). During these times, I cook two to three dishes, depending on my budget and my energy. Haha! I separate them between containers which are good as one serving each. So when it’s time to eat, I take one and pop it in the microwave.
These breakfast muffins are perfect whether you’re on a Whole-30 program or not. They are super easy to make, delicious and healthy. These can be made ahead of time, too, so these are perfect grab-n-go meal. They can be eaten alone, can be served with greens or with a ketchup (a whole-30 ketchup if you are on the program… which I have to make that, too, yes?). This is a whole-30 recipe, so these babies are dairy-free, too. 😉 So what do you say, huh? Uh, just make sure you generously grease the muffin pan so you don’t have to go through the pain of removing them from the pan like what happened to me. Deal?
I am taking these beauties at this week’s Fiesta Friday # 163.
Beef, Peppers and Spinach Breakfast Muffins
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 cherry tomatoes, cut in half (optional)
- 1/4 cup red bellpepper, chopped
- 1/4 cup yellow bellpepper, chopped
- 300 g ground beef, lean/low fat
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp chili powder (I used kashmiri chili)
- 2 handfuls of baby spinach
- salt & pepper to taste
- 8-10 eggs, beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper
- In a skillet over high heat, add oil. When oil is hot enough, add in onions, tomatoes and bellpeppers. Cook until little caramelized, about 5 minutes.
- Add in ground beef and cook until no longer pink.
- Add in garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and smoked paprika. Cook for about 7 minutes or until beef is cooked.
- Add in baby spinach and cook until wilted.
- Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper. Let cool while oven is preheating.
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously spray muffin pan with olive oil spray.
- When the cooked beef has cooled down, scoop out about 2 tbsp cup and transfer to the prepared muffin pan, about 1/2 full.
- Beat about 8 eggs, season with salt and pepper. Pour beaten egg over the beef until it reaches 3/4 full. (You may need more or less eggs: if the egg is too much, you can fry them up. If less, than crack some more, season with salt and pepper and pour this over the beef.)
- Bake muffins for 23-25 minutes or until egg is set.
