Easy Egg Muffins

These are so easy to make and great for breakfast, a snack or in a packed lunch. They are basically mini crust-less quiches. They are a good low-sugar option, packed with good quality protein and great for getting some veggies into your breakfast. I usually make mine in a 12-hole muffin tin, varying the ingredients to make 3 or 4 different kinds, so you can meet everyone’s tastes. My daughter loves the cheese and ham filling, whereas my favourite is the cottage cheese and spinach. Happy cooking!



  • 6 large free-range eggs

  • 6 rashers of free-range smoked bacon (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Fillings: (these are my favourites, it's fun to experiment with your own)

  • Broccoli & mushroom

  • Cottage cheese & spinach

  • Cheddar cheese and hard-carved roast ham

  • Sweet potato, broccoli and mushroom with cheddar cheese


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

  • Beat the eggs in a bowl and season to taste with the salt and pepper.

  • Line the muffin tin with the bacon rashers, 1 rasher should do 2 ‘portions’.

Prepare the ingredients for the fillings…

  • Gently sauté the broccoli and mushrooms in a little butter – add to muffin tin

  • Sauté the spinach in a little butter – add to the muffin tin, with a spoonful of plain cottage cheese

  • Chop the ham into small chucks – add to the muffin tin with some grated cheese

  • Sauté some roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli and mushrooms in a little butter – add to the muffin tin, sprinkle with cheddar cheese

  • Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients, be careful not to over fill.

  • Top with a little black pepper.

  • Cook for approx. 30 minutes.

  • Enjoy!

12 week Premium Plus Programme

From the first consultation to delivery Donna was completely supportive, understanding and a consummate professional. Her understanding of my needs and dietary requirements was fantastic. I’ve lost over 2 stone, and my asthma is now nearly non existent. I wholeheartedly recommend Donna, I can promise you that you won’t regret getting in touch with her.

Nutrition MOT

Following a period of illness I decided to take my life in hand and decided that my diet needed an overhaul. As a family we have adapted the changes easily into our busy lives and have enjoyed the meals from the menu plan. It has made us look more carefully at the foods we are buying. If you’re reading this, you’re obviously contemplating looking at your diet. I would definitely recommend Donna to help you with this.

Gut Healing Programme

I contacted Donna because I had health issues and a poor diet. I'm so pleased I did as she helped me change my diet and I now feel so much better with her support. In fact, I was so impressed that I advised my daughter to see Donna, and she in turn has recommended Donna to her friend. Overall Donna is competent and understanding, easy to talk to and sympathetic to a person's needs. I would give her a 5 Star rating *****
