Egg Muffins

_DSC4926

This week I was strolling around the supermarket in Abu Dhabi and I stumbled on Golden Irish Fresh Free Range Eggs. Needless to say, I stashed a dozen in the basket whilst deciding what to make. A poached egg, fried egg, boiled or an omelette. Then I had a light bulb moment and thought Egg Muffins. I had an array of vegetables in the fridge and egg muffins are a great recipe to use up all the veg. Egg muffins are a convenient snack for when you are on-the-go , breakfast or like me after the gym.

To the mix I added mashed sweet potatoe, red peppers, garlic, chives, mushrooms, dijon mustard and topped with smashed avocado, chilli, lime and toasted pine nuts.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the Golden Irish Eggs in your supermarket :
