[RECIPE] More ways to enjoy eggs every day

Easy to make and very versatile - egg muffins

If two eggs a day sounds like lot, try preparing them a little differently to just frying, boiling or scrambling.

Here’s one of our favourites:

Lunchbox egg muffins 


  • 10 rashers of bacon (optional)
  • 8 eggs
  • ½ cup of milk
  • Your preferred filling – spinach, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, cooked sweet potato, herbs, grated cheese, ricotta
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


Grease a muffin tin well with butter. Preheat oven to 175° C. In a measuring cup beat the eggs and milk. If using bacon, wrap it inside the muffin tray to provide a casing. Divide the egg mixture equally between the holes. Add your preferred filling. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until crisp and golden. Leave to cool slightly before removing from tray.


  • Make a double batch to make enough to pack in lunchboxes
  • Get the kids involved, a fun recipe for them to make
  • Omit the bacon and make plain egg muffins with cheese and vegetables of your choice.
  • Swap the bacon for prosciutto or ham slices.
  • Suitable for freezing.
