Spiralized Broccoli and Cheddar Egg Muffins

So basic, why I haven’t I never created a broccoli and cheddar ANYTHING on the blog!?

Sometimes I kick myself, because I try so hard to create original recipes that will excite you, when many of you truly want health ways to use your spiralizer, even if that means a basic combo like “broccoli and cheddar.”

Soup, muffin, casserole – this combo is comfort food at its finest and with the help of the Inspiralizer, you get more broccoli and texture in each muffin!

These muffin cavities are filled with spiralized broccoli stem (yes, you can spiralize broccoli) as well as the florets, so you’re getting the nutrients both from the stem and florets! And, minimizing waste, of course.

Spiralized Broccoli and Cheddar Egg Muffins

My favorite way to spiralize broccoli is by saving the stems for future use. So, instead of spiralizing the stems whenever I’m using the florets only in a recipe, I’ll save the stems in a bag and then later in the week, spiralize them for a new dish. There’s a killer Spicy Sausage, and Quinoa Broccoli Pasta in my next cookbook, you’re going to love!

Anddd these are definitely baby friendly! I tested them on Luca and he LOVED them! I sliced them up into strips so he could grab them more easily. And if you have a little one too and looking for more baby food inspiration, check out @inspiralizedkids, our Facebook page, and our Inspiralized Mamas group!

More to come on the kids front, but in the mean time, I hope you enjoy these adult and kid friendly muffins!

Oh, and yes, you can make them into donuts too! You’ll just need a donut pan, but the instructions are the same!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Spiralized Broccoli and Cheddar Egg Muffins

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 14 large eggs
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 2 large broccoli stems Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Beat the eggs in a medium bowl.
  • Take out your muffin tin. Grease the muffin cavities well (I use olive oil cooking spray.) In each muffin cavity, add about 1/3 of the way with broccoli noodles and florets. Into each cavity, use a ladle and pour over the eggs to fill three-quarters of the way to the top. Sprinkle with cheese (about a teaspoon per muffin.)
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until eggs are completely set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple of minutes or until ready to handle – pop the muffins out! Serve immediately or freeze for future use (they last about 3 months in the freezer.)

Only 1/4 cup of cheese to 14 eggs? Is that right?
Joann Hutchings says:
Is the cheese quantity correct for the amount of eggs?
Meaghan says:
Hi Joann! You want to sprinkle just about a teaspoon per muffin!
Kaeli says:
Do they need any type of spices or herbs??

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
