How To Make Easy Breakfast Muffins – A Recipe
We’ve been cooking with children and making mini breakfast muffins on camera…all the ingredients for fun or a recipe for disaster?!
Here’s our easy breakfast muffins recipe.
Both came to mind when Schwartz asked us to make a ‘how to’ video of the two of us cooking.
E loves cooking, but as I’ve previously touched upon it’s never been my strong point and combining both of us in the kitchen can be a bit of a, well, pressure point. But this sounded fun.
Although she often helps make lunch and dinner, the things we cook from scratch tend to be sweet (mainly banana cake because we ordered too many bananas and didn’t eat them, again). So we wanted to make something that was both stress-free and savoury, for a change.
I got the idea from a quick Pinterest search, but this is a made-up recipe and the joy is that it’s so easy to adjust it to your tastes. The muffins can be vegetarian (minus the ham, obviously!) You can put whatever veg in you fancy, and they are gluten free. As well as being really easy to make they’re a great breakfast alternative, can be eaten cold and are perfect for BLW as they come in little hand-size portions.
So here’s how to make them and you can see the video here:
Ingredients (for six mini muffins)
- 4 x eggs
- Splash of milk
- Cheese, grated, lots of
- Whatever you fancy for a filling – we used chopped tomatoes and ham
- Seasoning: Schwartz Basil and Season-All spice
- Break eggs and whisk together. Add milk and basil
- Mist the muffin tray with oil.
- Line with fillings – cheese, ham and tomato
- Pour in egg mixture
- Season (you can also sprinkle Parmesan on top)
- Cook in a 200° oven for around 15-20 mins till they’re done. They should puff up pleasingly nicely.
Tips for cooking with kids: prepare everything first! Have the right amount ready in small bowls. Give very specific roles. Don’t get too stressed.
PS this is how we made the video!
