It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Vegetable Muffins

Preheat oven to 375F.

3 – 4 cups of medium diced vegetables
(May include mushroom, zucchini, onion, peppers, eggplant, sundried tomatoes, corn, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli … If using onions and/or mushrooms, sautee till soft first. If using hard vegetables like carrot, either grate, or use cooked leftovers.)

1 clove garlic
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 to 1/2 cup grated cheese

6 eggs
1/2 cup milk

1. Prep vegetables as needed, then mix all together in bowl.

2. Fill regular sized, greased muffin tin 2/3 full of vegetable mix.

3. Whisk eggs and milk together in small bowl or large measuring cup. Pour over vegetables.

4. Top with grated cheese.

Bake for ~25 minutes, till brown at edges. Will firm up as they cool, so best not eaten straight from the oven.

  2. Ooh, I love this – what a great make-ahead for breakfast!

    Yup. They’re also perfectly yummy at room temperature, so they’re good in lunch boxes.

  3. Looks yummy! Aside from onions or mushrooms, you don’t cook them first? (e.g. cauliflower, etc). I also love that it’s low-carb.

    No, no prior cooking needed. I guess they’re cut in small enough bits that being baked in the milk-egg mix for 25 minutes is sufficient to cook them through. The inspiring recipe had a more specific list of veggies, and didn’t include mushrooms or onions, but as far as I’m concerned, mushrooms and onions are pretty nearly always a Good Idea!! You do need to cook the onions to cut down their bite, but I just like the texture of fried mushrooms better. I’m betting you don’t really need to pre-cook them.

  4. A more apt name might be mini veggie frittatas. Onions can be microwaved to take off the bite and soften them. Put a tad of oil or water on them and cover them. This sounds simple and good.

    True enough. They’re ‘muffins’ only insofar as they are muffin-shaped. But simple and good? Yes, indeed!
