New Year...New Start

Ok, so I'm on a Whole 30 challenge for the New Year~ and I need to start thinking of creative ways to cook again. I found this wonderful frittata recipe from Everyday Paleo. She has amazing recipes on her blog, from pizza to chicken and all that goes in between! I thought this would be a great thing to make the night before and have breakfast all ready for the morning! And it's a cinch to clean up.

Egg Cupcakes

10 -12 eggs whisked well

1 green onion

2 zucchini

3 big handfuls of spinach

1/2 a jar of roasted red and yellow peppers

6-8 slices of COOKED bacon

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 and grease with olive oil two muffin pans. Whisk all your eggs in a big bowl. In a food processor throw in the green onion, zucchini, bacon, and peppers and process until finely chopped but NOT smooth (yuck…). Add this mixture to your eggs. Throw your spinach into the processor and finely chop and also add to your eggs. Mix the egg mixture well and using a 1/4 measuring cup, fill the muffin pans (you’ll be able to make 18-20 cupcakes). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle. These are great to take on the go and I like mine with some sliced avocado and green salsa.
