Quick and healthy appetizer idea for parties. Scrambled egg muffins with sauteed leek, mushrooms asparagus and parmesan cheese.
I am crazy about egg muffins lately and I make them often at my home. Enjoy these healthy cups that you can make in less than 20 minutes with products that you buy often. This recipe is great for appetizer when you have any party or brunch at home.
Before making my egg muffin cups I looked at my fridge and I’ve noticed lots of leek sitting in there. I thought right away that it will be great to use leek. However, first I wanted to make my leek a little softer by sauteing for 10 minutes with other veggies like asparagus and mushrooms.
Basically, what I thought will be perfect for scrambled egg muffins I just add it. If you see any ingredients in your fridge going bad use them quickly for your muffin cups. I hate wasting food so I always try to use all products that I buy.
One fact about this scrambled egg muffins is they love to STICK to the muffin pan. So my suggestion is to oil muffin pan a lot. I mean a lot… Also, paper liners or silicone liners might be used. However, still oil these liners. I actually wasted my muffin pan by not oiling enough so now I need new muffin pan. But that’s ok I use it a lot in my kitchen for my baked goodies so it will be probably used often.
Anyway, scrambled egg muffins are also perfect for breakfast. You can make them ahead and enjoy them throughout the week. I bet when you make them it will not be easy to stop at only one:)
