Mediterranean breakfast egg muffins are a delicious and healthy way to start your weekend. This simple, versatile vegetarian recipe is low carb, packed with protein, glutenfree and low in calories too!
We love these tasty breakfast egg muffins as our Saturday brunch, regularly having them on return from our weekend workout.
That’s because this quick healthy meal will allow you to get on with enjoying your weekend, perfectly full!
You know how it is. You really don’t want to spend ages contemplating what you’re going to eat do you?
Making sure you’re getting a sufficient healthy “fill-up”. Before you go out and spend your own weekend free time doing what you want.
Nor do you want what you’ve eaten all week for breakfast?
No, neither do we. We want something a bit special. A healthy mediterranean breakfast!
So that’s why I created this easy Mediterranean breakfast recipe.
You can quickly prep everything the night before. Or in the morning.
Just whisk up the eggs, milk and parmesan cheese together. And pop in the fridge. Then chop up your veg.
We especially love the grated cheddar cheese!
When cooked it goes all gooey over the top of our breakfast egg muffins! However, you could always leave that out if you wanted to make these even lower calorie.
So go on and treat yourself this weekend to this tasty low calorie low carb mediterranean breakfast recipe. It’s easy to make and each serving gives you three breakfast egg muffins.
You could always pair this with a lovely fresh tomato salad to bulk it up further.
Chatting over breakfast egg muffins
Chatting to you folks here today about this Mediterranean breakfast egg muffins recipe has reminded me.
NEXT weekend Lady Lynne and I will be off for a short weekend break to London!
You know how we both love our holidays and trips away!
Both of us will work a half day next Friday morning. And as we’re fortunate enough to work in the centre of Glasgow, we’re literally 5 minutes from the main railway station.
From Central Station we will catch a direct high speed tilting pendolino train and be in London in just 4 hours!
We plan to arrive just in time for dinner and drinks somewhere. Yet to be decided.
But, as I mentioned in the previous leek, sweet potato and rosemary soup recipe I’ll be on the look out for some new fantastic recipes. Ones that I can re-create for you folks.
Hopefully I can get some great pics of London too.
We’ve got Saturday morning for doing the London tourist thing. Seeing some of the sites. Then we’re going to see The Railway Children.
Well, The Railway Children, the film, was always a favourite. Now we’re going to see it played out LIVE in Kings Cross station, all with a real Steam Engine too!
I’ll just pause here to bring myself down off the ceiling.
I’ll go and lie down now and see you next Tuesday!
Have a great weekend, with these Mediterranean breakfast egg muffins! 😉
