I was trying to figure out something healthy I could bring to work instead of salads, which I am slowly tiring of, so I found this very simple and healthy recipe online. Apparently its quite the common dish - guess I live under a rock! The ingredients are chopped spinach, red onions and red peppers and of course eggs. All you have to do is put them on a greased muffin tin and throw em in the oven for 20ish minutes! I tried one and its pretty good! And it gives me something to eat for the next few days. My only complaint is that I dont think I mixed the eggs well enough as you can see blotchy white bits. Not sure what that is but Im eating it regardless. Lol. Have you ever made something like this?

Those look amazing! So, you made 12 of them. Can you freeze them? Would you please send me the link to the recipe?

Yes! Im told by others they are freezable or otherwise good for about 5 days if you keep them in the fridge. Im having a hard time finding the recipe now of course but I whisked a dozen eggs. Sprayed muffin tins wuth nonstick cooking spray. Put chopped veggies in first and then eggs over them in each muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 20-25 minutes!

@maezee That was it? Are the veggies raw or did you saute them first? Any milk, water whisked with the eggs? Spices, herbs? That sounds so easy. Have you ever had eggs baked in avocado halves? To die for.

If we ate eggs, we would eat something like this. As we don't eat eggs, we would eat the spinach, red onions and red peppers instead @maezee We like salads enough that we have eaten these regularly for years. Maybe switching the types of ingredients in your salads could help.

It looks so good in fact i once made an egg quiche in the microwave. It was a quick egg quiche recipe. The ingredients that I included were cheese, chicken, pepper, morsels of bread. It was not that bad

@maezee I would love to eat a lot of eggs. But it is not required for me to have more than two eggs a day.

@Shavkat Why is that? Is it the cholestrol or fat content?

I make quiche, so that is similar. I have never made mini ones though! That is a good idea. I think the white part of the egg will taste just fine like that.

I think so! Quiche sounds good too. I know thats made with egg and spinach usually also. Is there some type of breading that goes on it too?

@maezee I usually made it in a regular pie crust or tart pie crusts. But lately I have just been making it without the crust to be healthier. I think next school year I will make the mini ones without the crust and freeze some. A nice change for lunches for work.

No I haven't tried something like this and think I am going to try! Can one put cheese on them? Do you Mix the eggs like for some scrambled eggs? Just have to find muffin tins! Think I have some very small ones!

Yes! Just mix the eggs like you would for scrambled eggs. I would assume cheese would be good in there too! I had to run to the dollar store to pick up the muffin tins lol

I have had something like this since I was small. My mother called them by its french name, eggs "en cocotte". She used earthenware small pots and added milk or cream to the spinach mixture.

Yes, must be the egg whites... Looks delicious and, more importantly to me, sounds simple enough to make... Do you put some cheese too?
