After my wife’s recent surgery, she was limited to a diet that called for “soft foods”. Since she was told to eat small meals 4-5 a day, I decided to make these Scrambled Egg Muffins to make it easy for her to bring some to work with her.

This recipe is so easy to make even a novice can make it. if you’ve made scrambled eggs before, you can make this recipe. The only difference is instead of cooking the eggs in a frying pan, you bake them in a muffin tin.

One of the things I love about this recipe is how versatile it is. You can tweak the ingredients to your liking. I had some Ground Turkey leftover so decided to use that as my protein. But you can use whatever you want!

Instead of Ground Turkey, you can use Ground Beef, Sausage, Bacon or even some Ham. Just make sure the meat is cooked before adding it to the egg mixture.

Instead of Bell Peppers, you can use onions or some diced mushrooms or any other veggie you would put in an omelet. For the cheese, you can try some shredded Mozzarella or some Pepper Jack if you want a little kick.

    I just love these. I live alone and these are perfect for me as a breakfast, or even supper with a salad. They keep well in the refrigerator and are delicious. I used ground beef because that is what I had on hand, but next time I will use the ground turkey as it is my favorite. A keeper in my house.
