FFS Recipes: Protein Hit - Baked Eggs

October 20, 2019

 

This month we are introducing Anna Pfeifer as our new guest blogger for the FFS Blog. Anna is a long-standing FFS Member and a regular feeder of the FFS Staff, with both healthy and not-so healthy recipes. 

 

Up first is a simple but fulfilling recipe that works great as quick breakfast or dinner. Most of us will have eggs in the fridge, so it is an excellent recipe to have in your recipe repertoire.

 

 

The Lowdown

 

This is one of the easiest recipes around and my perfect go recipe for a quick healthy meal at any time of the day. Its jam-packed full of protein along with lots of veggies and keeps me full and satisfied for the day especially if I’ve had a tough session in the gym. You can make this the night before as well, all you need to do is transfer it into a lunchbox and heat it up the next morning in the microwave.This recipe can easily be adapted for more people just double or triple the recipe.

The Showdown

 

Ingredients - 1 person

  1. 2 x eggs

  2. Handful of spinach

  3. 4-5 cherry tomatoes, chopped in half

  4. ¼ yellow pepper, chopped finely

  5. 4-5 pieces of Chorizo (you can substitute this with something else if you prefer), e.g. bacon, parma ham, black pudding, sausage or more veggies (mushrooms are great)

  6. Sprinkle of cheese (I used cheddar)

 

Cooking method

  1. Heat the oven to 200 degrees.

  2. Take an ovenproof dish/bowl and add in the spinach, peppers, tomatoes, and chorizo.**

  3. Break the eggs on top and sprinkle over the cheese.

  4. Place in the oven for 16-18 mins. 

  5. Take care when removing it as the dish will be very hot. 

 

Vegetarian Friendly: To make this vegetarian friendly, just leave out the meat and add in more vegetables to your liking.

 

Seasoning: I don’t use salt/pepper in this recipe but you can add in no problem, I just feel that the cheese and chorizo can be salty enough so it doesn’t need it. If you want to add or swap in any other meats, herbs or spices to your liking then fire away! You can substitute any of the vegetables or even the cheese to whatever you prefer or have handy! I usually just throw in whatever I have in the fridge, it’s that simple.

 

Serving it up: You can serve this on its own if you’re dialling down your carbs or with a nice slice of sourdough bread for a delicious healthy meal in less than 30 mins.

 

Bulk Cooking: If you are food prepping in bulk, then you can up the quantity by X 4-5 and pour the mix into a muffin tray. Each 'muffin' is one serving.
