Egg Muffin Breakfast Bites

Egg Muffin Breakfast Bites.. So I've been meaning to try to make these for a while and for whatever reason was inspired on a whim this week to do it. I happened to have a bunch of eggs that needed to be used up, as well as salami leftover from a Dahlish pizza I made last week, and some shredded mozz leftover from that also. I only had enough salami to use them in 3 of the 6 muffins, so the other three I tested as simply baked eggs. Now this isn't some food combination you've never had - but the novelty of it is great, and so is the ease of making and eating it!!

Scrambled eggs are hard to keep and eat on the go, but these perfect little baked egg muffins are definitely going to be my go-to protein source in the mornings post workout. You can make them a couple of days ahead of time and just reheat them in the morning. You can also use this idea for a breakfast or brunch where you're making eggs Benedict or breakfast sando's - how perfect?!

I originally saw this recipe using turkey slices but I used salami as I mentioned before. You could use anything - if you want to be more decadent you could use bacon, but for every day use I'd stick with sliced turkey or something similar.

How to:

Take a muffin tin and place 1-2 slices of turkey or salami in the base of each cup, making a lining. I happen to have a tin with 6 muffin spots and they're fairly small. Not mini, but definitely not large.

Once they're lined, you can sprinkle some cheese on the bottom, then crack an egg in the center. You could also forgo the cheese, or perhaps add it on the top? This is something you can really play around with. Add some chopped tomatoes on the bottom or some hot sauce for a kick.

For the non-meat lined muffins just crack the egg in the muffin tin, it shouldn't need any sort of non-stick aid as long as your tin is non-stick. I cracked some black pepper atop mine.

Then place them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Take them out and check them at 10 minutes and go from there. All oven's are different so this may take some experimenting. It also depends on how runny you like the yolk. Play around with it!

All Baked!

Hope you all enjoy these, I sure did. They were easy and dahlish and full of protein to start my mornings this week.
