Who couldn’t use a little extra convenience these days?
Whether you are off to fight traffic to get to work or drop your little ones off at school, adults and kids both struggle to get in a wholesome, but quick breakfast option on fast-paced mornings.
These Sweet Potato Egg Muffins are perfect for this scenario!
Eggs are one of the best foods for us. They offer a source of complete protein and (harmless) cholesterol. Pastured eggs are especially beneficial, providing us with Vitamin K2 and a bounty of other vitamins and minerals to support our skin, brain, and bones, plus protect us against cancer and heart disease. I eat three eggs every morning as part of a substantial breakfast!
If you are on the AIP diet, eggs are one of the first reintroductions suggested. If tolerated, they are an amazing food to incorporate back into your diet!
These muffins take little time to prepare, but they can fuel you all week long. Simply make a batch and refrigerate. You can eat these cold or warm them up.
1.Fill a small pot with enough water to cover the sweet potato, and bring to a boil. Put the potato and add it to the boiling water.
2.While the sweet potato is boiling, dice enough yellow onion to make 2 TBSP, and add to a medium-sized bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Also, line a (6) cupcake tin with baking cups.
3.Once you are able to pierce the sweet potato with a fork, remove it from the water and pat dry. Cut into small, bite-sized chunks and add to the bowl.
4.Stir everything together and divide the mixture evenly into the cupcake tin.Bake for 20 minutes.
Optional step: Beat the eggs before combining with the rest of the ingredients for fluffier muffins.
If you opt not to beat the eggs, the muffins will still come out just as tasty. While this combination of sweet potato and onion works well, swapping out other veggies you prefer (or have on hand, or you need to use up) will be just fine. Plus, switching the veggies out and/or adding meat keeps you from getting bored of the same flavors each week.
Making egg breakfast muffins is a lifesaver for my family who needs a quick source of fuel during the week. What are some tips you have for convenience on busy mornings?
