Cheesy Spinach Breakfast Muffins

I loved having these on hand for work during the week. I just snagged one and tossed it in my lunch bag on my way out the door. You could make these up in a mini or full size muffin/cupcake pan. Just be sure that you split the macro nutrients accordingly so you can have an idea of what you’re eating to keep track.

It can be hard to keep track of your macro nutrients with recipes like this because one muffin may have more spinach or cheese than another. I tried to do my best to make them equal but at the end of the day I think if you can stay as close as you can to your personal set macros then you’re doing great!

CHEESY SPINACH BREAKFAST MUFFINS

6 eggs
1 tbs heavy whipping cream
1 tbs dried onion
1 tbs minced garlic
2 cups fresh spinach

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350°f
2. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs and heavy whipping cream
3. In a frying pan, warm olive oil or butter to cook up the spinach.
4. Once all of the spinach is wilted down, add in garlic and dried onion.
   Mix well and warm through then remove from heat.
4. Add the spinach mixture and cheese to eggs and salt and pepper to
   your preference. Mix well.

   with your eggy mixture.
