Breakfast Muffins

I have had several requests lately for me to share my wife’s breakfast muffin recipe.  So, by popular demand, here you go!

To make 12 muffins:

12 large eggs, beaten well

½ cup diced onions

½ cup chopped mushrooms

½ cup chopped bell peppers

1 cup fresh spinach

½ pound cooked ground turkey, cooled (we use 93/7 mix)

Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder

Optional items:

½ cup cheese

Preheat oven to 350°

Spray muffin pans with nonstick spray

Fill muffin pans about ¾ full with mixture, roughly 1/3 of cup

Bake for 25 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes in pan.  Then remove to wire rack to cool completely.

This is a very versatile recipe so feel free to play with it based on your own personal tastes. Personally, I also like to add some salsa verde on top to give them a little zing.

You can place these in an air tight container in the fridge and they will last several days.  Just heat up in the microwave and they are good to go.
