Bacon, Egg and Spinach Muffins

Hi, it’s Lori Lange from RecipeGirl.com visiting the BHG Delish Dish blog again this week with another breakfast/ brunch recipe for Bacon, Egg and Spinach Muffins.  I took a peek at BHG’s original recipe for Bacon and Egg Muffins and decided that they needed some greenery.

I added a handful of chopped fresh spinach to the recipe, and they ended up being a big hit with everyone in my family.

These muffins are flour-based, with a little bit of cornmeal added in too.  I love the texture that the cornmeal provides.  The interesting part of this recipe is that you don’t add regular eggs to the recipe- you add already scrambled eggs!  Isn’t that crazy?  It totally works.  The cheese is a major bonus too.

This is my trick for making sure that muffins get evenly distributed in muffin tins without making a giant mess.  Use a springform ice cream scoop.  The amount that ends up inside the scoop is perfect for gently releasing into the muffin tins.

And then there’s the bacon.  I hold a strong belief that bacon should be in just about everything.  I’m thankful there’s a generous chunk of bacon in these muffins too.

And there they are – all baked and puffed up to perfection.  These are a fabulous grab-and-go kind of muffin, and they freeze and defrost wonderfully if you like to prepare make-ahead breakfasts…

…OR you can choose to serve them warm with a nice dose of maple syrup.  That’s how my family liked them best.

I followed the BHG recipe for Bacon and Egg Muffins for this recipe, but I mixed in a handful of chopped spinach to the batter before baking.

  9. My “green”? Fresh roasted, chopped New Mexico green chile (added garlice to the chile, of course). I chopped the bacon too! Using scrsmbled eggs makes the prep time a snap and cooking time really quick!

  10. Hubby and I are not spinach eaters, I might want to improvise with something else, I might just try Ham and eggs instead since I have some.
