In Collaboration With Food Lover’s Market

Breakfast’s as a banter can be fairly limited. There’s only so many times you can eat boiled eggs, fried eggs, scrambled eggs and bacon. Obviously commercial breakfast serials or a good old slice of Marmite toast is simply not going to cut it. So breakfast egg muffins are a staple in our house because they can be prepared ahead of time and popped into the microwave for a couple of seconds and hey, presto, you have a delicious, healthy, sugar free and satisfying breakfast in seconds.


They can be an SOB to make. It’s taken  me a while, searching through thousands of recipes online and trial and error to perfect a recipe that works for us. I saw a few of you commented that you struggle to get them out of the muffin pan after baking and I had the same issue, they would either always get stuck, or break when I tried to remove them.

After much trial and error, I’ve found the perfect hack!

The secret is in adding something to the egg mixture to give it a bit more substance and firmness during baking. And this was such an easy recipe, I even created a YouTube Video to show you how to do it! 

Check this out:


These were delicious, tasty and they kept well in the fridge overnight so we could enjoy them over a few days. 

Here is a printable version of the recipe:

The Blessed Barrenness
A delicious, satisfying, high fat, low carb breakfast!

Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 40 mins


  • Butter
  • 6 x Eggs
  • 1 Cup Marscapone Cheese
  • Packet of Bacon
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Packet of washed baby spinach


  • Preheat oven to 180Β°C.
  • 2. Grease a muffin pan using butter.
  • 3. Rinse and chop your favourite bits (I used onions, bacon & spinach)
  • 4. In frying pan, sautΓ© your favourite bits until cooked and slightly browned. Once cooked, set aside.
  • 5. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs on high speed with salt & pepper, add the marscapone cheese and blend well.
  • 6. Fill bottom of muffin pan about 2cm with your sautΓ©ed bits and pouring egg mixture over this until muffin pan just under full.
  • 7. Place in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 8. Allow to cool
  • 9. Once cooled, slide a flat butter knife around the edges to loosen the sides and remove from the pan.
  • 10. Enjoy!


These are delicious served straight out of the oven but they also keep well in an airtight container in the fridge and heated for 30 seconds the following day.
