Morning are busy in most households, so I imagine most people run out the door with a coffee in hand and maybe a yogurt to wolf down at the office. Well, in our house, that's not the case. If you are a regular reader of this blog, or if you know me at all, you'll know that I am completely addicted to eggs. I literally don't know how I could go on living if they suddenly didn't exist.
With that being said, I eat eggs every morning. And while they are certainly not a 5 course meal, they take a few minutes to prepare. A few minutes that I could sometimes use to do something else! So when I saw this recipe, I was really excited, as it allows you to make eggs in advance.
For this recipe you will need:
- A muffin tin, sprayed with cooking spray
- 6 eggs (or however many openings your muffin tin has)
- 12 leaves of spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
Ready for how easy this is?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay 2 spinach leaves in each muffin tin. Crack an egg in each muffin tin.
( I like to leave my yolk whole but you can certainly scramble your eggs in a separate bowl beforehand.)
Sprinkle each nest with a little bit of salt and pepper, and pop those babies in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
That's it! Then simply remove, let cool and store. In the morning, all you have to do is pop an English muffin in the toaster, zap the egg nest in the microwave, and a hot and healthy breakfast awaits!
Note: You can get more creative with these if you'd like; add your favorite type of cheese, tomatoes, caramelized onions, etc. to jazz 'em up. :)
