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.)

I always have trouble pinning your recipes. Have the time I get the picture of the Pin logo. Anyone else have this issue?

Me too
Michele Pryse says:
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??
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Kaeli! We haven't tried with any, but try it out and let us know how it turns out!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas
...

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
