I absolutely love making kale and mushroom egg bites. They’re a delicious and healthy option for breakfast, brunch, or a quick snack. Not only are they easy to customize with your favorite ingredients, but they are also perfect for meal prepping since you can make a big batch and store them in the fridge for a few days. Let’s dive into the details of how to make these flavorful egg bites!
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup of chopped kale
- 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (I prefer using cheddar or feta)
- 1/4 cup of milk or non-dairy milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional add-ins: diced bell peppers, onions, or cooked bacon
To start, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and generously grease a muffin tin to prevent the egg bites from sticking.
Next, sauté the mushrooms in a pan with a bit of olive oil until they’re golden brown. Then, add the chopped kale to the same pan and cook until it’s slightly wilted. Set the mushrooms and kale aside to cool.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined. Then, stir in the shredded cheese and the cooled mushrooms and kale.
Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg bites are set and slightly golden on top.
