Courgette Egg Muffins

Weekends I normally do some meal preparation for the week ahead and one of the things I like doing is making these courgette egg muffins. We are only two in the household so I have breakfasts for at least 3 days. Add some bacon, avocado or anything else and I have a healthy breakfast that is not only filling but with good nutrition too.

Hope you enjoy making these muffins as much as I do.

Until next time, Eunice

Notes

Egg muffins are so versatile as you can add so many things to it and make it a one stop meal.  Kids love them and it is a good way to have more vegetables as well.  Make a batch and you are set for breakfast for a day or two.
