I’m late‘ seems to be a more and more recurrent problem for the majority of us. Hitting that first class in the morning or suffering a long commute without having breakfast is something that I swore I would never do again. So every recipe that I can make in bulk on Sundays and that I can just pull out of the fridge, reheat for a couple of minutes and bam!, breakfast is served, is my favorite kind of thing to cook. But I am also conscious that it can’t just be about saving time, but also about getting a decent amount of nutrients with your first meal. Come on.

Being healthy is the new trend, and I am all about enjoying good food that can also nurture my body. So here I have one of my favorite ways to eat eggs: in a muffin shape! With just a few ingredients, that you can absolutely customize to your liking, this is a recipe that’ll blow your mind.

  • Step 1

    Get all your ingredients ready, because all you need to do is put them all in a bowl and stir, stir, stir. Remember, your rice should be already cooked, and you can substitute for white rice, quinoa, bastami, etc.

  • Step 2

    It is best if you whisk your eggs and whites before adding them to the rest of the ingredients. You don’t want to end up with some parts white and others yellow.

    Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes and, if you can handle yourself, let them cool a bit before digging in.
