REALLY easy brunch recipes: mini egg cakes you can make with your kids

Muffin tin baked eggs are so easy

This couldn’t be an easier Sunday brunch. Kids as young as two-years-old can get in on the action, too.

All you need is a muffin or cupcake tin, eggs, milk and whatever vegetables or cheese you have in your fridge.

Pop various ingredient ideas into a greased muffin tray.

Nice combos are:

Ham and cheese

Feta and spinach

Tomato and bacon

Spinach and mushroom

For healthy greasing, try a teeny bit of coconut oil, it also adds extra flavour.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Whisk 7 eggs, 2 tablespoons milk (use rice or almond if you’re going dairy-free), salt and pepper if you want. Try a sprinkle of Himalayan rock salt, if you’re trying to cut salt from your diet or from the kids diets.

Divide your combos evenly into tin, get the kids to make up their own recipes to make it more fun. Pour enough egg mixture in each well to come to the top and garnish with a pinch of grated cheese.

For extra protein, you can spoon some cooked quinoa into the mixtures too, for a crunchier texture.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Easy. Pop a few in a lunchbox and take them on-the-go.
