Are you looking for a quick and easy breakfast? These Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins can be mixed up the night before (everything but the eggs). In the morning scramble the eggs and add them to the mix and in twenty minutes your muffins are ready. I usually make a double batch and save the extras for future breakfasts. They keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days just fine. I have not tried freezing these spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins yet, but I’ve been told they do freeze well. These Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins are perfect for meal prep. This recipe makes one serving, which is three muffins, very easy to double or triple the recipe.Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins

 

I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas and I like to find recipes that include some sort of vegetable. Not always easy as eating vegetables for breakfast does not seem to be the norm, unless you are enjoying a spinach omelet! Often I will stir fry some peppers to enjoy with my eggs but I love the idea of making these ahead of time and having my breakfast ready to enjoy!Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins

 

Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins

 

Ingredients:

 

1 cup spinach

1 Tbsp. scallions

1 egg, scrambled

2 slices cooked turkey bacon, chopped

½ cup cooked quinoa

1 tsp. Olive oil

 

Directions:

 

Preheat your oven for 375. Cook the spinach with olive oil just until wilted. Transfer the spinach to a bowl and add all of the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. Spoon the mixture into your muffin pan, which has been lined with muffin cups or coated with nonstick spray. I used my silicon muffin liners and they work perfectly. Bake for 20 minutes.Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins

 

As I mentioned this recipe can easily be multiplied to make more Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins. Why not make a big batch to freeze so you always have a healthy, pre-workout meal ready to enjoy!Spinach and Bacon Quinoa Muffins

First of all, for all who have been wondering about the mystery item mentioned yesterday in The Pantry Game, we had one correct guess Miracle Whip! Amazing what is in a commercial jar of mayonnaise.

Today’s recipe is another family favorite. If you haven’t tried overnight waffles you’ve been missing an awesome treat! I love this simple recipe; you mix up the majority of the ingredients the night before. In the morning you add the butter and an egg and the mix is ready to be turned into delicious waffles. What better excuse to enjoy maple syrup. I enjoy using this recipe when we have company. It makes for a delicious, easy breakfast in the morning without much effort on your part.

Preheat the waffle iron and melt the butter. Beat the egg in a small separate bowl and beat it into the batter along with the melted butter. The batter will be quite thin.

Lightly spray the hot waffle iron on all surfaces with the nonstick spray and rub on a little butter. Add just enough batter to cover the cooking surface. Cook for two to three minutes, depending on your waffle iron. Do not over bake, as you want it crisp and brown, but not too dark.
