Egg McMuffins

Monday, September 26, 2011

Ok, I found this recipe on Belleicious Kids, and am planning on making some more things from that blog too! It's not really Egg McMuffins because, well, McDonald's makes us barf. One of the drawbacks of eating a healthier diet is that your body won't let you eat junk. Another reason it isn't really a McMuffin is because there is no bread. For her review, see here.

So, here you are!


  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup carrots, minced in food processor
  • 1/2 cup broccoli, minced in food processor
  • 2TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped ham
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese


First in a large saucepan heat 2 TBSP of olive oil and add your carrots, onions, broccoli, zucchini and bell peppers. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until tender. Remove from heat and sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper. In another bowl, combine the beaten eggs with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and Cajun seasoning

Using a 12 cup muffin tin, grease each cup and start by placing the chopped ham in the bottom then the veggie mix, next the cheese and lastly the beaten egg mixture. Be careful to ONLY fill the muffin cups to about 3/4 full so they do not overflow while cooking. Optional: sprinkle with a dash of paprika and bake in the oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Timing may vary depending on the size of your muffin tin.

These were so good that our whole family snatched them up for breakfast 3 days in a row. When the last of them was gone, the kid who didn't get one pouted! So, This was a healthy and yummy way to sneak in some power-packing veggies for a quick and healthy breakfast!
