These delicious muffins are adapted from a recipe in Everyday Paleo by Sarah Fragoso – thank you Sarah. We change the ingredients according to whatever is in fridge or freezer and they make a perfect breakfast, lunch or snack. Forget those bird food cereal bars and eat one of these instead. They are seriously delicious. We make extra and freeze them so that Richard can take them out the freezer before he leaves for work and have them for breakfast when he gets there. Just pop them in the microwave to warm them up but they are just as nice cold. We often use frozen peppers in quick recipes as they are more economical. Frozen spinach is really handy too as it cooks so quickly. Morrisons is definitely better than the Co-op brand – it retains its shape and doesn’t turn into a soggy mess. We use minced beef, minced lamb, minced pork, bacon – whatever you have to hand.
Makes 12 muffins – quantities of vegetables are a rough estimate, just add to taste
Half a red onion
100g frozen peppers
200g frozen spinach
1lb minced meat
6 large eggs
70g sun-dried tomatoes
Add the meat and fry until gently browned. You could add any herbs or spices you wish at this stage too.
Spoon mixture into the lightly buttered muffin cases (we use the silicone cases and they are great).
