Savory Turkey Cheese Egg Muffins

As our challenges come and go, I can often track what's going on in my life by the recipes I'm doing for the various challenges. Right now I'm getting back on track with carbs and trying to watch my diet. The egg challenge came along at the perfect time because eggs are such a huge part of a low carb plan. 

I've often made these egg muffins. They are wonderful for quick weekday breakfasts! I pop a couple into a Ziploc and microwave them at work for a quick breakfast or snack. If you aren't a low carb fan, you could even put them on a hard roll or toast for the perfect egg muffin sandwich. 

What I love about Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs, is that they are safe to cook 'rare', allowing you to underbake them slightly and reheat without overcooking your egg muffin. Definitely a plus for creating healthy, make-ahead breakfast meals. I hope you'll enjoy one of my favorite egg recipes.

Savory Turkey Cheese Egg Muffins

adapted from this recipe on the Incredible Egg website

8 large Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs
1/4 cup half & half
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped

Scramble eggs in medium bowl, mix in half & half, salt and pepper (to taste) and chives. Set aside.

4 slices roast turkey breast from the deli (roughly chopped)
1 cup shredded cheese (I used maple bacon cheddar - you can use any shredded cheese you like)
4 small plum tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup diced red onion

In a 12-muffin tin put a small amount of turkey, cheese, diced tomatoes and onions into each tin. Make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed amongst and within each tin. Pour the scrambled egg mixture into each tin, about 2/3 full. You could also mix the ingredients into the eggs then pour them into the muffin tins, but I find the other method a bit easier to control the amount in each tin.

Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes, until set and beginning to brown on top. If you are planning to reheat these, pull out when slightly under baked, about 20 minutes.

Serve with sliced tomatoes, fruit or a salad for a light lunch!
