Did I tell you that my kid eats like he's 400lbs? Breakfast is no exception.
I know things will change when #2 comes along, but I'm really not into giving my kid cereals or bars in the morning. We usually do eggs, yogurt with peanut butter, or homemade fruit and oat muffins. He's really great about eating what we eat, so if I tried to give him baby cereal I think it would go immediately on the floor.
Now that I'm back to teaching early-ish outdoor Stroller Fitness classes we needed an easy fix to elaborate breakfasts. I've included this quick pan in my mealpreps every Monday night and it's SO easy. You can swap out the veggies for your own preference easily, I've made these with zucchini, artichoke, peas, kale, squash, and olives.... and the cheese is usually whatever we have in the fridge. These have impressed the pickiest of eaters, although sometimes a little ketchup or salsa does the trick on a particularly grumpy morning. (Speaking personally.)
Here's what you need:
8 large eggs
A couple splashes of milk
Some salt/ pepper
1/2 cup of shredded chedder, feta, or mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup (ish) diced pepper,
1/4 cup diced onion
1 cup chopped spinach
1 handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 tbsp dried basil, oregano, or other favorite spices
1.) Preheat your oven to 375, coat the bottom of a muffin tin with nonstick spray. (We use coconut or canola oil spray- also I mean it when I say "coat". Scrubbing stuck-on egg chunks off a muffin tray is the worst.)
2.) Chop all your veggies and toss in a small bowl with the spinach
3.) Add your eggs, a little milk, cheese and all other ingredients and whisk together.
4.) Spoon 1/2 cup each of the egg mixture into each muffin cup and evenly distribute along the pan.
5.) Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5-10 minutes and remove with a knife.
These usually last us the entire week in the fridge. I'll see if they freeze well for a quick postpartum friendly breakfast. Eggs are an excellent source of collagen and protein, so these are also great ones to bring over to a postpartum momma!
