What are egg muffins?
Egg muffins are a quick and easy snack or breakfast option. They’re freezable and can be defrosted in the microwave so its good to make up a big batch and then take one out of the freezer as and when you need one. Because they’re made in muffin cases they’re perfectly mess free and great for toddlers in particular although these can be enjoyed at any age! These egg muffins have low fat cheese, peas and sweetcorn but you could literally put anything in them you want they’re so versatile. This egg muffin recipe makes 12 muffins at 71kcal each.

Step 1: Eggs!
To start with, crack 8 large organic eggs into a bowl. In my opinion organic free range eggs taste so much better than cheaper alternatives. they have a much more vibrant yolk too! Preheat your oven to 180c.
Step 2: Herbs
Beat the eggs with a fork and add in 1 tablespoon of milk. This can be any type of milk, this time i used semi skimmed dairy milk but I have also used oat milk in the past. I find adding a splash of milk helps the egg muffins feel lighter and less like scrambled eggs in a cup. To this add 1/2 teaspoon of oregano 1/2 tsp thyme, 1/4 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp of sage and a generous pinch of salt and pepper depending on personal taste. Add half of your cheese to the mix. Continue beating the egg to ensure all of the ingredients are well mixed.
Step 3: Muffin cases
Set out your muffin cases into a muffin tray and evenly distribute your egg mixture between 12 cases. You can then add in your egg muffin fillings. In this case we are using 150g of petit pois peas and 150g of sweetcorn. I used tinned, pre cooked but if your using fresh veggies par steam/boil them first. They do not need to be fully cooked as they will be going in the oven soon. Add the remainder of your low fat cheese on top of the muffins and bake at 180c for 15 minutes.
If peas and sweetcorn isn’t your favourite why not try:
- Ham & cheese
- Peppers & Spinach
- Cheese & tomato
Can I reheat these muffins?
Yes! Pop them in the microwave for approximately 1 minute.
Can I freeze these muffins?
You sure can! Place into sealable containers before you pop them in the freezer.
