Serves 3, prep time 10 mins, cook time 30 mins

Ingredients

  • cooking oil spray
  • 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 lb ham
  • 9 eggs
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat milk of choice
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • salt
  • pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly spray 6 holes of a standard muffin tin with cooking oil spray.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for a minute or two, until translucent. Add the spinach and stir for a minute or two, until wilted.
  3. Line each muffin tin hole with 2 slices of ham to form a “cup”.
  4. Whisk eggs, milk, dill, cooked onion, and spinach. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the egg mixture evenly into each ham cup and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until firm and the egg is cooked through.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin before removing. Serve two muffins per person.
  7. Leftover muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
