Broccoli and Red Pepper Egg Muffins

Broccoli and Red Pepper Egg Muffins

Servings: 9-10 Muffins
Servings 10 muffins



  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush the wells of a standard-sized muffin tray with avocado oil or light olive oil (a silicone muffin tray or silicone cups work best here to prevent the muffins from sticking).
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper and onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
  • Fill a small to medium-sized pot 3/4 full with water and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the broccoli, and boil 1 minute. Drain well and cool slightly.
  • Whisk the chive and garlic spread together with the milk in a large bowl. Whisk in the eggs, salt, and black pepper, and then stir in the red bell pepper/onion mixture and the broccoli.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tray, filling each muffin well about 3/4 full (I get 9 to 10 muffins out of this recipe, but it might vary slightly). Sprinkle the cheddar shreds on top of each (about 2 teaspoons per muffin).
  • Bake until the eggs are set and golden, about 25 to 35 minutes. Cool in the tray a few minutes, then run a paring knife along the outside and slide the muffins out. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Store leftovers wrapped in the fridge for up to a week and pull them out for a quick breakfast (you can reheat them in a microwave).
