Easy breakfast muffins

Packed with flavour and great for a snack.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and these delicious muffins are a great way to mix things up a little. They’re full of veggies, but the great thing is they’re super versatile so you add whatever you have on hand in the fridge. Try mushrooms, parsley or anything else that takes your fancy. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy for breakfast or a mid-morning snack.

2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and onions and cook for about 3-4 minutes, until onions are golden. Add the sweet potatoes and thyme. Cover and cook for 8 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes begin to soften. Add the capsicum and cook 4 minutes more. Stir in the prosciutto. Add the spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes, until wilted. Lastly, add the garlic and cook for another 1 minute.

3. Spoon the vegetable mixture into the muffin pan, distributing it evenly. Top every one with 3-4 tablespoons of the egg and cheese mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
