Looking for a breakfast or brunch recipe that’s EASY and will KNOCK your guests socks off? Look no further friends! These sweet little “egg muffins” will be one of the first items in your buffet line up to go. So simple, so elegant, and so delicious.
I actually made these entirely by accident last month (I LOVE when that happens). I was in recipe development mode one saturday morning and some family from out of town had just arrived. While mid recipe writing, the troop walked in and before I knew it, I was scrambling to wrap up everything I was doing in the kitchen. My initial intention that morning was to create a big beautiful quiche with a savory herb crust. However, before I had a chance to really get down to business, I quickly threw everything I had together in one bowl, popped it in the oven, and honestly didn’t expect much.
I was left with one of the best savory “muffins” I have made to date!
Aren’t they adorable?
These guys also come with some bonuses when compared to your standard quiche…
- far better nutritional profile/calorie content
- much easier to make
- baking them as muffins allows for easier serving
- ideal for serving fresh our of the oven, at room temperature, cold, or even during food prep for the week
- did I mention each “muffin” is only 59 calories (fat- 1 gram, carbs- 6 grams, protein- 7 grams)???
This was one happy accidental recipe. I’m looking forward to trying different variations of these in the very near future!!!
