Mini Morning Egg Bites

Eggs are by far my favorite breakfast. They're just so darn good. Aren't they? I can remember when I was a young girl and my mother taught me how to make sunny-side up eggs — I thought I was so cool.

I invited my grandma over just to make 'em for her — and they were a bit too runny and undercooked, but I was still proud. Then, came the hard-boiled eggs. And deviled eggs. And then omelettes. Then frittatas. And egg bakes. But just recently I thought… Why not make some cute little egg muffins?

So I did. I made this fun lil' easy egg recipe just for you.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole large eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 10 Ounces fresh baby spinach, cooked
  • 1 large Roma tomato, diced
  • 1 medium-sized Vidalia onion
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs with the egg whites. Add the spinach, tomato, onion, parsley, chia seeds, salt, and pepper and mix well to combine.

Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray. Pour the egg mixture evenly into cups. Bake for 30 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Serve warm or place in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and serve for a quick breakfast or snack.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
