FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER WHILE BAKING THESE EGG MUFFINS
- Make sure to use a non-stick muffin tray with some oil or butter brushed liberally or sprayed in each cavity properly as these muffins love to get stuck at the bottom and sides.
- You can also use a silicone muffin tray or maybe even some muffin baking liners or parchment paper liners.
- Fill in the muffin tray ⅔rd only, as these muffins tend to rise while baking.
- Run a knife or spatula around the muffins to let them come out without any hassle. Let the muffins cool for sometime before attempting to remove them out from the tray.
- If you’ll be storing them for later use, simply wrap them individually and place them in the freezer for even up to 2 months. These can be either stored in an air-tight container or maybe even in a freezer-safe, zip-lock bag.
- Reheat once frozen or thawed, with a light brushing of some butter, in the microwave until properly reheated entirely. Should take anywhere between 40secs to 1.5min but this totally depends on your microwave.
- Reheat in the microwave at 20 secs intervals. Check as you go. As a baker, I’d say it is just like melting chocolate in the microwave, you’d do it for a lesser time interval (15-20secs) so that the chocolate doesn’t burn. It’s the same with this.
- This recipe is very versatile to make and you can add whatever ingredients you prefer and DIY it for your preference.
- I’ve slightly sautéed the veggies before use but you can also just use them freshly chopped.
- Use some cheese if preferred either in the beaten egg mixture or as a topping.
- I’ve used about 4 whole eggs for a batch of 6 muffins but you can increase the proportions according to your preference.
The Ultimate Breakfast Egg Muffins

- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray a 6 mould muffin tray with some nonstick oil or brush on some melted butter. Set aside.
- Heat a pan on a medium flame. Sauté some garlic in oil and add the chorizo. Once the chorizo is slightly fried add the veggies of your choice. I sautéed in some onion and bell pepper. Once done, set aside to cool slightly.

- Add the sautéed mixture in the eggs and mix well.
- Pour the mixture about ⅔rd full in the muffin mould and top with some cheddar cheese and a sprinkle of dried or fresh parsley.
- Bake for about 15-20mins until set.
- Once slightly cooled remove them out gently by passing a knife or spatula to separate the edges from the tin.
- Serve hot with a side of lightly butter toast or maybe even some fresh cherry tomatoes.
- You can add any veggies, meats, fruits, cheeses, herbs, etc of your choice while making these super fluffy muffins.
- Make these in advance and store them properly in an air-tight container or a zip-lock bag in the freezer for up to 2 months or maybe even 3, if they remain and aren’t eaten.
- They can be reheated in the microwave by lightly brushing on some oil or butter.
- Either thawed or frozen, the muffins should be reheated at 20 sec intervals so that they are well heated and not too soggy and rubbery. Check as you go.
- I sautéed the vegetables and meat before adding it to the egg mixture but you can always use fresh produce.
- Various combinations to try in the breakfast egg muffins: grilled mushrooms and caramelised onions, ham and cheese, baby spinach and feta, scallions and pepperoni, etc.
