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
