If you love frittata, then you will love these breakfast muffins.
They are essentially just mini frittatas that are cooked in a muffin tin.
As well as being sooooo simple to make, they store well and can be placed in the freezer for up to a month.
They are also filling, which means they make a great WW breakfast or snack option.
And did I mention that they are zero smartpoints on the Blue & Purple plan and only 2 smartpoints on the Green plan!!
Tips for making these Egg Muffins
- Use a good quality non-stick muffin tin.
- Make sure that you grease the muffin tins well. Use your calorie controlled spray oil – one spritz in each of the muffin tin holes is sufficient.
- Try to evenly distribute the mixture between each of the muffin tin holes.
- The mixture should come up about 2/3rds of the way up the hole.
- When cooking, try not to open the oven for the best puffed up muffins!
How do I store them?
The muffins can be be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 or 3 days.
I would suggest that you place a little paper towel in the bottom of the container and one piece over the top of the muffins – just to keep them extra fresh.
If you are wanting them to last longer than that I would suggest that you freeze them.
Warm them in the microwave in 10 second interval bursts!
Can you Freeze the muffins?
For best results I would suggest that you follow these steps when freezing these smoked salmon breakfast muffins.
- Make sure that the muffins are completely cold.
- Wrap them individually in plastic wrap.
- Place in a freezer safe bag
- Freeze for up to a month.
Reheating breakfast muffins
I would suggest that you follow these steps to reheat these muffins!
- If you are reheating muffins that have been in the fridge, warm them in the microwave at 10 second bursts till warm throughout. Alternatively you can heat them in a preheated oven for 5 – 8 minutes.
- If you are wanting to reheat muffins that have been in the freezer – remove from the freezer bag and the plastic wrap
- Wrap in a paper towel.
- Heat in the microwave at 20 second bursts until they are warmed through.
- If you haven’t got access to a microwave I would suggest that you let the muffins defrost at room temperature and then place them in a preheated oven for 5 – 8 minutes until they have warmed through.
