Baked Eggs

Another Pinterest find: baked eggs! I’ve seen recipes like this all over Pinterest and I thought it was time I gave it a try. I’ve already said how I’m all about convenience in the morning so this works out perfectly! The possibilities are really endless for what you can do with baking eggs but I decided to keep it rather simple. I used a muffin tin and cracked an egg in each cup.

The basic directions are to bake the eggs at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Before putting them in the oven I added in broccoli and spinach and mixed it all together. Cheese or any meat like bacon, turkey, or ham would be great additions. These are great to freeze for later use.

So delicious and so easy! Definitely a win win!

Banana Muffins

What to do when trapped inside from a winter storm with two feet if snow? Bake!
I scrounged up some reserves if baking products and bananas that were on one their last days and made banana muffins. This recipe is super easy and takes about 10 minutes prep. This recipe came from allrecipes.com and goes as follows:
Ingredients:
1.5 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas (I used 4 small)
3/4 cups white sugar
1 egg
1/3 butter (I used about 1/2 cup applesauce)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will spring back when lightly tapped.
Makes about 12 large muffins or 48 mini muffins.
