Any Time Egg Muffins

Posted Sep 26 2012 10:10pm

My brain was so foggy this morning that I couldn’t decide if “anytime” was one word or two. So, for my brain’s sake, it’s two.

I used to loooove the Egg McMuffin sandwiches from McDonalds growing up. I would get the  combo meal with the milk and hashbrown. Mmmmm….greasy. The McDonalds website describes it this way “Our signature sandwich is made with a freshly cracked* Grade A egg with extra lean Canadian bacon and a slice of melty American cheese, held together by a freshly toasted English muffin. And all that for 300 calories.” I love how freshly cracked has an asterisk after it which refers to the availability of the freshly cracked egg….meaning….who knows! I just HAD to post the ingredients for this bad boy….Barf!!!

Please look at the ingredients of the hash brown!!! “Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]), salt, corn flour, dehydrated potato, dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), extractives of black pepper. Prepared in vegetable oil: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness. Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent. ”

I don’t even know how to pronounce “Dimethylpolysiloxane” but whyyyyy does a potato need an anti-foaming agent??  Well, if you haven’t gagged from reading all those, kudos to you!

Here is my recipe for some stinkin delicious egg muffins that you can enjoy any time (or anytime) for a healthy, delightful meal.

Ingredients:

7 eggs

1 cup spinach or kale (preferably chopped)

1 cup cherry tomatoes (I used roasted tomatoes….yum!!)

4 slices thick bacon

1/4 cup feta cheese (totally optional)

1/4 cup almond flour (or, 1 Tablespoon coconut flour)

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

Pinch of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin tins. Cook bacon and cut into small pieces.

In a medium sized bowl, crack and mix eggs well. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Use a measuring cup to distribute egg mix into pans. (My heart shaped pans made 9 muffins)

Bake for 20 minutes, until middle of muffin is firm to the touch. Devour!

Store in airtight container for up to 5 days!
