Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins
These Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins are a mini frittata made with bacon, onions, cheese and spinach. Always a breakfast fave!
When I was following a low carb diet, I ate a lot of eggs. In fact, one of my favourite meals was a simple egg and bacon frittata. Not only was it easy to make, but it was filling and so good. I never felt like I was eating “diet food”.
It almost feels too good to be true. Like how can I lose weight eating such yummy food. Yet, it happens!
Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins
This week, I decided to make frittatas, but on a smaller scale. I whipped up a batch of these Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins for breakfast and they were amazing!
They had all my frittata favourites like bacon, onion and cheese and I added in some spinach for an extra kick of colour (and iron).
I used fresh baby spinach, but you could also use frozen spinach if you like. Just make sure you squeeze out all the extra water before mixing it in.
If you wanted it to be a vegetarian recipe, leave out the bacon, but remember to add some oil or butter to the onions when you fry them up.
The sky is the limit when creating unique ways to make egg muffins. You can pretty much use any ingredient you like. I’ve made them a bunch of different ways depending on what I had in the house.
How to Make Spinach & Cheese Egg Muffins
They are super easy to whip for a quick and delicious low carb breakfast.
Start by spraying a muffin pan with cooking spray.
Beat together the eggs. Add in the shredded cheese and stir.
In a frying pan, cook the onion and bacon over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add the spinach and stir to combine. Cook for another 3 minutes until the spinach wilts. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
Add the spinach mixture to the egg mixture and stir. Ladle the mixture into the muffin pan. Be careful to not overfill.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350F.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing the egg muffins.
To easily loosen, use a butter knife to loose the sides of the muffins and then gently remove with a fork.
