Egg-Turkey-Spinach Muffins

Egg-Turkey-Spinach Muffins

Recently I invested in a muffin pan, and let me say it is one the best $3.48 that I have spent in a while. The first thing I made in my new cooking toy was these egg and turkey muffins. I wanted to have a quick, and tasty high protein snack for the week. The thing I love about making these in a muffin pan is that I know exactly how much I am eating in one “muffin”.

Egg-Turkey-Spinach Muffin Recipe

servings: 12 muffin pan

nutrition: 120 calories per “muffin”

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp milk
  • frozen spinach
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • lime juice

spices for seasoning- all to your own taste preferences

  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • dried basil
  • red pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cook the ground turkey in a skillet until browned and add desired spices while turkey is cooking. Once turkey is done cooking, set aside for later. *note: if cooked ground turkey is very greasy drain or pat down the excess oil if you desire.
  3. Evenly divide the 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil into the 12 muffin spots, so they are lightly greased.
  4. In a bowl whisk eggs and milk. I added lime juice for extra acidity and the next time I make this recipe I will probably add more spices, and possibly some sriracha sauce for extra flavor.
  5. Once eggs and milk and optional spices are fully combined, evenly divide the egg mixture into the 12 muffin places.
  6. Add the ground turkey, evenly distributing them into the 12 spots.
  7. Add desired amount of thawed frozen spinach to each muffin.
  8. Individually, mix each of the muffin spots so all ingredients are distributed evenly.
  9. Bake for approximately 20 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool.
  11. Enjoy!

 

*The next time I make this recipe I may also add sautéed onions or broccoli.

These muffins are great warmed up in the microwave and can be stored in the refrigerator for 4-5 days after making them. I love eating them cold with a bit of ketchup on top.
