TURKEY-VEGGIE EGG MUFFIN RECIPE

TURKEY-VEGGIE EGG MUFFIN RECIPE

Okay, these suckers are amazing! Not only are they delicious but they are ridiculously convenient to have around. I make a boat-load of these every weekend so I can eat them all week long. I store them in gallon-sized ziplock bags in the fridge and I can't get enough of them!

One muffin is packed with 11 grams of protein. And at 100 calories, you cannot beat it! These muffins make the perfect post-workout meal!

I don't know about you but my days are so busy. Time whizzes by and I find myself needing to eat with no time to prepare anything. There are many days I have these babies for breakfast AND lunch. I even pop a couple in my purse if I'm gonna be running errands or shopping. Just yesterday I made a Costco run with my mom and I filled my purse with these egg muffins and blueberry muffins!

Costco is an hour away from us so I knew we'd be gone a while, plus there's always a possibility of stopping other places. I always have food in my purse. I don't want to ever get caught off-guard somewhere and be starving and only have unhealthy food to choose from or to tempt me.

My hubs and little girls love these muffins too. I cannot keep them in the house! Yummy and healthy. You can't go wrong with that shiz ;)

WHATCHU NEED:

  • 1 lb GROUND TURKEY
  • 12 EGGS
  • 1 cup shredded MOZZARELLA CHEESE (or preferred cheese)
  • 1/4 cup UNSWEETENED ALMOND MILK (or preferred milk)
  • 1 cup RED PEPPER, finely chopped
  • 1 cup MUSHROOMS, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup GREEN ONIONS (or reg. onion), finely sliced
  • 3 Tbs organic dried PARSLEY
  • 1 Tbs OLIVE OIL
  • 1/2 tsp HIMALAYAN SALT or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp organic black ground PEPPER
  • SILICONE MUFFIN PANS OR regular MUFFIN PANS

TIPS:

1. Instead of red peppers/mushrooms, YOU CAN USE 2 CUPS OF ANY DESIRED VEGGIE OR VEGGIE COMBO!

2. If you only want to make 12 muffins (or only have one muffin pan), you can reduce the number of eggs to EIGHT. Keep all other ingredient amounts the same. Muffins will be less eggy and more filled... but still DELICIOUS!

 

WHATCHU DO:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, cook ground turkey . Place in medium bowl, add mozzarella cheese, and set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in large skillet and add red pepper, mushrooms, and green onions. Cook for 5-6 minutes.

TIP!

You can SKIP Step 2 to save time! Veggies will be a little crunchier but still delicious! You would then omit olive oil from recipe.

3. While veggies are cooking, whisk eggs, milk, and parsley in a large bowl.

4. Add ground turkey, cheese and veggies to the egg mix and stir well.

5. Coat your muffin cups generously with cooking spray.

TIP:

*You can also opt to use silicone muffin pans for super easy cleanup. The muffins pop right out of the pan! I usually use my silicone pans for this recipe; however, my mom was borrowing them at the time of this food shoot. Btw, I ended up buying my mom her own since she didn't want to give mine back, lol.

6. Fill muffin cups almost to the top (they won't rise much at all).

7. Bake 20-25 minutes or until set.

TIPS

You can substitute any veggies or cheeses that you like. You can also substitute turkey bacon pieces for the ground turkey. Experiment with several different combinations to find your favorites and to have a variety of choices. The combinations are endless.

If you make these muffins without the turkey (Mushroom Pepper Egg Muffins), they're only 73 calories each! You can have 5 of them for only 365 calories and 32 grams of protein! That's a hearty meal!

Most disclaimers are so filled with confusing lingo that you don’t even understand what they're saying. I’m going to break it down for you the way I'd want it to be broken down for me. I’m not a fan of complicated and unclear regulation jargon. So here’s the dealio. Half of Gabby takes up a tremendous amount of my time. But because I love it so much, I really want to continue dedicating my time to it. For six years now, I have been providing product links to products that I use and love and in turn recommend them to my readers. These products have helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle and/or improve my family life. I have helped sell countless products for six years and have never received any commissions… Until now. As of September 15, 2016, I will be providing links just as I've always done, but now will receive a very small commission if you purchase an item through the affiliate link that I provide. An affiliate link is simply a link that brings you to a place where you can buy that product. I will not earn a commission by you simply clicking on the link, you must actually purchase the item(s) within 24 hours of putting it in your Amazon cart. Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase through an affiliate link on Half of Gabby. You will NOT pay more by clicking through the link. My promise to you is that I will never recommend a product that I don’t fully 100% believe in and/or use myself and recommend to close friends and family. This will allow me to continue working hard on Half of Gabby without it using up time that I need to otherwise dedicate to contributing to my household. I'm happy to be able to continue my blog and to continue talking with, meeting, and helping people all over the world with their health journeys!
