I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s tag team post with Amy’s Vintage Closet! If you missed it, you can check it out here. So, today I’m going to share with you some awesome new tasty treats that just came into my life.
My friend and fellow blogger Elizabeth (check out Everything’s A Thing) blogged about them a couple of weeks ago and my coworker brought some into work earlier this week. First I thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?” and then I decided I was going to make some of my own. Having procrastinated on buying groceries for the week, I used limited ingredients but enough to do the job.
After spraying a muffin tin with a little Pam, I placed some greens inside (I used a mixture, but feel free to use spinach or whatever tickles your fancy). I cooked some ground turkey I had left over in a skillet with olive oil and garlic (seasoned with a little onion powder and salt). Once cooked and drained, I added a spoonful in each section on top of the greens. I then sprinkled with cheese.
Having already scrambled my eggs (seasoned with a little seasoned salt and a splash of milk, I poured the mixture into each section. Then sprinkled some more cheese and added freshly cracked pepper to the top.
Bake at 375 for 20 minutes (less time if you want a runnier egg, more time if you want them well done), remove from oven and let cool for a little bit.
Then pop em out and enjoy!
Can I just tell you how yummy and good for you these are? They are the perfect out-of-the-door breakfast and are too easy and cheap to make. You can add bacon or any kind of meat you want. Scramble your eggs or crack an egg in the tin. Add more veggies, quinoa, sauces… the possibilities are endless. They store well too. I had some extra that I was able to reheat at work the next day.
Who’s to say that you can’t make these fancy? You can even make them apart of your brunch entertaining. I’m already thinking about a southwestern baked egg! You could add bell pepper and cilantro, top with some salsa and/or sour cream. Mmmm…fiesta fiesta!
Happy eating! What would you add to your baked egg?
