I spray the muffin tins go. When they come out of oven I loosen with a spoon or offset spatula. Never really had a problem getting them out.

I have a question for everybody who makes eggs in muffin tins: How do you get them not to stick to the pan??? No matter how much oil I use, or even if I use paper liners, I always end up with an awful mess.

I did something similar. I precooked the meat and veggies, so that the next morning I only had to add the eggs, cheese, and potatoes and pop it in the oven.

I just tried this casserole that I found in an SP article:

www.gimmesomeoven.com/easy-cheesy-breakfas
t-casserole-recipe/


I substituted Italian chicken sausage for the pork, used 12 oz of potatoes instead of 20, and used reduced fat cheese, but otherwise made it as specified. It was very good and satisfying. It makes 8 servings, so plenty of leftovers. It would be something to make on a weekend, then reheat squares in the microwave on weekdays.

I'm a lover of hard boiled eggs and am getting a kick out of making them in my new mini-ultra InstantPot. The little basket I invested in holds 14 eggs (all touching each other). One cup of water goes into the InstantPot, then the basket of room temperature eggs, lock the pot, select "EGGS" and you get a program for 5-min preheat, 5-min high pressure cooking. Push the on button and then when you hear the InstantPot beep continually, push the cancel button and set your oven timer to 5 minutes. Leave the pot alone for 5 minutes for natural release of pressure, then, with an oven mit on, push the instant release button to release the remaining pressure. Wait for the float valve to drop, then it is safe to unlock the pot. Plunge the newly boiled eggs into ice water to cool rapidly and you're done.

These hard boiled eggs are so easy to peel! They're just perfect - every time.

All things are possible.

Talapia, prepacked frozen 4 oz fillets in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes on each side (depending on if it's REALLY 4 oz) and topped with a tad of Soy sauce eaten with whole wheat toast. 2 pieces of toast of the fillet is smaller. emoticon Better than egg whites (with no Choline) or Tofu with soy.

Chia Seed Pudding made with Greek yoghurt. There are several recipes on Spark Recipes. My favorite is Maple Vanilla. You need to mix it up the night before and put it in the fridge overnight. You can add fruit or other toppings. I make 5 portions at a time for the whole week!

Oops - just realized this thread is for SAVORY breakfasts. Then I would agree with the egg/muffin cups idea or mini-quiches. Here's a good one:

I tend to have breakfast phases when I'll eat the same thing for months, then switch. I'm in the pudding phase!

Avocado toast for me - I just smash avocado on my toast, usually 1/3 to 1/2 an avocado. Sprinkle some black pepper. Often I add a cooked egg on top and eat with a knife and fork. One of my favorite breakfasts.

you can do mini egg cups- scramble your eggs, pour into muffin tins, add whatever veg/meat/cheese/seasonings, and bake them off. or you can sous vide them if you're fancy :P they do reheat well and you can eat them plain or throw them in a wrap/sandwich/etc!

i also like steel cut oats- you can change up the toppings/mix ins to change the flavor. you can also add an egg or two in when they're almost done cooking (temper and then whisk in slowly)- it'll give it a more luxurious, custard-like texture and also increase the protein.

you can make large batches of veggie hash and add protein of choice- be it sausage/bacon/chicken/tofu/etc.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

Packing the egg and flatbread separately is my first suggestion, too. Personally I prefer english muffins, as they are relatively lo-cal and reheat well after toasting. DH likes egg "muffins" made with ham and cheese, or sausage and cheese. I make 6 at a time in a muffin tin and he zaps one before work.

Does it have to be breakfast food? Could you handle a bean and cheese burrito, or a chicken soft taco?

URBANREDNEK, great suggestions! I'll have to try that this week.

To the other egg suggestions: Thank you for the suggestions, but I like hot food when it's cold outside, so deviled eggs or hard boiled eggs don't work well for me, and I've never had good luck reheating scrambled eggs without them getting watery (I'm looking for things I can take into work, pop in the microwave, and then eat while checking my email, as I generally go to the gym on my way to work).

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

Have you tried just making the egg part ahead and just heating it for a few seconds and wrapping it in the flatbread in the morning?

I like breakfast bowls with cubed potato, spinach, whatever leftover veggies I have, scrambled egg and cheese...maybe a chopped up veggies sausage or turkey sausage too...very easy to make ahead and reheat great.

Generic description: grain "salad" with mixed veggies and meat slices.

Make ahead separately:
--- 3 to 5 "servings" each of various grains (quinoa, buckwheat, millet, oat bran, whatever) with the plan to refrigerate enough for the next few days and freeze the rest
--- extra sliced / pieced meat (cook extra from weekly dinners and freeze so you can pull out different ones depending on what flavour / nutrients you want)
--- roasted bite-sized veggies
--- stir-fry of 3 to 5 "servings" each of onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery, peppers, squash or whatever you like, with extra sauce to be the "dressing" for the assembled creation (or do some sauces separately if you want more variety)
--- 3 to 5 "servings" of some different legumes / pulses (I never get the terminology straight: some black beans, red kidney beans, chickpeas, or lentils --- you know what I mean!)

On the evening before or a few days in advance, I'll get out my microwaveable containers and in each one will put in:

- one half "serving" of a grain or mix of grains
- one half "serving" of legumes / pulses
- enough of the stirfry and roasted veggies to suit my mood / nutrient needs (usually 240g-400g, so 3-5 "servings")
- extra protein (either meat or nuts / seeds or eggs)
- my sauce / "dressing"

This gets stirred together and re-heats well or does great tossed together and heated in a skillet in the morning then put in to a thermos. I've also enjoyed it just as much cold, if I don't get a chance to reheat it.

I most often go for a mix of quinoa, black beans or lentils, roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts, sauteed onions / mushrooms / celery, chopped chicken, some almonds, and some cheese --- with either a splash of balsamic vinegar as the "dressing", or a peanut / hoisin / wine vinegar mix. I shoot for 400-500 calories, 25g protein, and 12-15g fibre.

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

What's your favorite make-ahead savory breakfast?

I've never liked eating sweet things in the morning, and I'm looking for some new ideas for make-ahead savory breakfast items, preferably ones high in protein and fiber.

My current favorite breakfast of 3 egg whites and 1 egg rolled up in an Aldi flatbread with a little 2% cheddar just doesn't lend itself well to being made ahead, as the flatbread gets kind of gummy when reheated.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.
