Healthy Egg, Ham & Smoked Gouda Muffins

Ever since I showed a little glimpse of these via Instagram on Saturday, I've had lots of requests for the recipe.
I have to say that I honestly was on a mission to make a warm breakfast out of fridge leftovers... and they turned out to be incredible!

Especially now that it's a new year and many of us have renewed our commitments to eating healthy, these are a delicious way to stick to your goal.

Packed with protein, these gooey, cheesy egg muffins won't cost you much in the calorie department... only 96 calories per muffin!

I made a dozen over the weekend, and ate them for a warm breakfast with some mixed berries for a filling, high-protein meal.

And the recipe would be easy to modify in case you were in the mood to add different meat/cheese!


{ Healthy Egg, Ham & Smoked Gouda Muffins }


Ingredients:

- 11 large eggs (feel free to use a dozen, your muffins may dome a little more)
- 4 smoke Gouda cheese deli slices
- 6 deli ham slices
- 1 tsp. oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- olive oil cooking spray


Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Spray muffin tin with cooking spray  

3) Crack all eggs and whisk in a medium sized bowl with a fork.

4) Slice the smoked Gouda and deli ham into very small squares (excluding Gouda rind).

5) Add cheese and meat squares and oregano to eggs and mix until distributed. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour equally into each muffin cup (approx. 1/4 cup each).

6) Bake muffins for 25 minutes. Allow to cool down for 2-3 minutes... and enjoy!

When I made these last weekend, Adam raved about them before I even got the chance to take the first bite. The Gouda is creamy and melty, and the spices are just perfect to add a little flavor.

Who knew you could pack such a punch in a 96 calorie protein muffin?


Bon Appetit!
