How to make veggie egg muffins

  1. Prepare the muffin pan and preheat the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a regular 12-cup muffin pan. Spray the muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. First, cook the vegetables. You should already have cooked spinach or use pre-cooked spinach. If frozen, make sure it’s thawed.
  3. To cook mushrooms, in a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high heat, and add thinly sliced mushrooms, sprinkle with salt, and cook for about 10 minutes until mushrooms soften and release juices.
  4. Then, make the egg mixture for savory vegetable muffins. In a large bowl, beat eggs until smooth. Add milk, salt, Cheddar cheese, and mix. Stir spinach, cooked mushrooms into the egg mixture.
  5. Finally, bake the egg muffins.
    Ladle the egg mixture into greased muffin cups ¾ full.
    Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let the veggie muffins cool for 30 minutes before removing them from the pan.

Below are some step-by-step photos illustrating the cooking process.
