Sometimes you want a hearty breakfast that you can eat on the go or throw in your bag to take to school or work. Usually the most portable of breakfast ideas are carb and sugar loaded. These tasty breakfast egg muffins are a great alternative and can be made in advance! You decide what meat, cheese and vegetables you want to put it in making the combination possibilities endless. And since you make a bunch in advance you have ready to go breakfast options all week.

I love these. They are filling and so much healthier than your muffins, bagels, donuts, and whatever else you grab with your morning coffee.

NEW WAY TO SERVE POTATOES, I LOVE IT

Just mash potatoes plain with butter or you can add yummy ingredients like cooked bacon, cheese, parsley, green onion, garlic, etc. Stuff in to a greased muffin tin, run a fork along the top and brush with melted butter or olive oil. Bake at 375 degrees or until tops are crispy and golden.

This recipe is great for brunch or for a special breakfast. You can make this ahead and pop it in the oven to re-heat just before serving time.

Full recipe:
4 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup of milk
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
12 eggs
2 tablespoons of dijon mustard
2 1/4 cups shredded cheese (I used cheddar, but the type is your choice)
2 cups FINELY chopped fully cooked ham
1/2 cup thinly slice green onions

Line the bottom and sides of a greased 15″x10″ baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and grease the paper (or foil). In a small mixing bowl beat cream cheese and milk until smooth (the cream cheese will not dissolve, you will end up with milk with very small pieces in it, FYI).
Add flour and salt and mix until smooth.
In a large mixing bowl beat the dozen eggs and then add the milk/cream cheese mixture. Mix well and then pour into the prepared pan.
Bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes until eggs are puffed and set (no need to bake until brown, just until when you touch them they seem set, the colour will stay light)
Remove from oven and immediately spread with mustard and sprinkle with one cup of the cheese. Sprinkle with ham, onions and another cup of cheese (there should be about 1/4 cup left for a topping). Roll up from the short side, peeling the paper or foil away while rolling. Sprinkle the roll with the remaining cheese. Bake 3-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cut into slices to serve.
