EGG MUFFIINS

A Great Breakfast-by-the-Hand Recipe

Easy & Fun Egg Muffins

Delicious and healthy egg muffins are a great alternative to the usual breakfast-by-the-hand options that we often grab as we head out the door (think muffins, bagels, donuts, and other carb and sugar filled choices here) .  Great to throw in your bag to take to school or work or even headed out for fun excursion, Egg Muffins are a healthy and hearty snack for anytime and can be made in advance – ready to go!

The variations are endless.  Any combination of omelet, scramble or quiche fillings, meat, cheese and vegetables. I’m thinking Chili Rellenos s bake (green chilis & cheese), Spinach Ricotta Pie, (with a tasty salami added), Quiche Lorraine (Swiss Cheese & Bacon); Or the iconic Denver Omelet (ham, bell peppers, & cheese)

Tuesday Tidbits: Speaking of Eggs…

I hope you find this brief rambling as amusing and entertaining as I do.   And Informative: Speaking of Eggs

Did you know salt over an egg forms a ‘white egg scab’? and that vinegar in the water helps ‘set the eggs’ while boiling?

Enjoy!

Math.  I use it daily.

I went shopping yesterday.  I had 30 minutes to shop, check the post office, drive home to unload the groceries and then back downtown to go to work.

We are big egg eaters. Not that we eat huge eggs but we enjoy them frequently.  One dozen eggs, large, were $1.70 and the 18 egg carton was $2.50. I saved a nickel by buying the larger carton. When I got home I removed the 18 egg carton by grabbing the right front of the carton and bringing it out of the sack. The left front closure was misnamed, no closure. The carton came out of the sack and plop, plop, plop spilled eggs on the floor and counter. The 3 eggs on the floor were gone, huddled together, naked on the floor.

I covered them in salt to form a white egg scab. The 3 on the counter? The shells were badly cracked and leaking. I asked for vinegar but it had all been used earlier and had not been replaced. I was going to boil the 3 eggs with a few drops of vinegar to set the eggs. There were no heroic efforts, too much blunt force trauma, and the eggs were gone. I was disappointed because of the lost time, the lost eggs, the lost savings.  Speaking of lost time, thanks for reading.
