Recipe ~ Breakfast Muffins Anytime

by Cherilyn David

Definitely read the whole recipe before you start.
Definitely make it your own and add and subtract for personality!


In a pan on medium heat:

3/4c diced onion
1tsp capers
1/4c red wine
1/4c butter or margarine
1tsp minced garlic
(add water to steam as needed while cooking)

In a bowl:

2 eggs
1/2c egg whites
1/2c chopped fresh spinach
1/4c milk
1/4c diced scallions
1/2c water

In another bowl:

1 1/2c flour
1 1/2tsp baking powder
1/4c powdered sugar
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper


frozen shredded hash browns
shredded cheese of your choosing
sliced fresh mushrooms

Watching your pan... spray/grease a 12-count muffin pan. Sprinkle just a layer of shredded hash browns at each cup bottom. Then place 2 or 3 mushrooms atop that.

*You could then layer chopped spinach on top of that INSTEAD of adding spinach to your egg bowl, your choice.

So you have a wet (egg) bowl and a dry (flour) bowl essentially. First focus on just sauteing your onion, caper mixture and then add that to your 'wet' bowl. Add flour mixture (dry) while whisking, until mixed well, not quite a dough consistency.

Now you just have your bowl of everything, your waiting muffin pan and your grated cheese nearby. Right?

Spoon mixture into muffin pan, should fill each cup over hash browns and mushrooms.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes and then start checking. Bake a couple more minutes and check again, do this again and again until almost done. Top with cheese, turn off oven and leave in for another couple minutes.

An oven safe bowl of water in the oven will create steam to keep muffins moist and help melt cheese.

A variety of sauces go great with this!!

Plan B: Lots of room for variety here. Any vegetables would be a great addition, avocado garnish, add some cheese to pre-bake mixture, meat?? The options are limitless.

Inside joke: My first try at these I accidentally mistook my powdered sugar for flour. They came out more like spinach-egg-potato-mushroom donuts, but still a hit!! That's when I added a little powdered sugar to the recipe!! :)
