Mornings are typically crazy...right? Trying to get yourself ready for work, workout, etc and lets not even talk about if you have to get kids ready...that is another level of chaos in the morning. I know when I am running late I typically grab a bar because nothing is easy in the morning...why shouldn't my breakfast be easy?
Well I found that by eating the "protein" bar I would be demolishing 300 calories in 4 bites, a ton of sugar, and other ingredients I could barely pronounce...not my proudest moments here. So I needed to find another option that was quick, reliable, and easy to eat.
For me the answer was muffin frittatas with a veggie and protein stuffed inside. Now I have made these 100 different ways, but my personal favorite are the bacon and broccoli...weird I know. But think about what other weird things you eat for breakfast...cold pizza, Chinese food, protein powder?!?
4 slices cooked bacon-chopped
1/2 onion diced
1 cup of broccoli florets -diced
2 tbsp unsweetened non dairy milk/milk
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp granulated onion
Preheat oven to 375.
Prep your muffin tray with either a nonstick spray or muffin cups. I prefer to have mine in the muffins cups strictly because I have cleaned baked on egg to too many trays now.
In a sauté pan heat up a tsp of oil then add your diced onion, cook until translucent, add your broccoli next and cook 3 minutes, then add your chopped raw bacon bits. Once bacon is cooked you will set mixture aside to cool.
In a mixing bowl, crack your eggs and whip with non-diary unsweetened milk. Add in your garlic, onion, bacon/broccoli/onion mix if it is cooled down, and salt/pepper....mix, mix, mix then using a measuring cup ladle into the muffin tins. I found that using a half cup worked best for me, I was able to get a few chunks of broccoli and bacon as well as fill it 3/4 to the top with egg.
Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes, the eggs should start to puff and be set in the middle.
You can freeze these for a later date, simply pop them in the microwave for a 15 seconds and you have an instant breakfast! If you have time we have also placed in a hot pan, broken the frittata up and mixed with salsa!
Be creative, #eatfficient
