I saw these muffins on King Arthur's site last week.  I thought they sounded interesting because they are made with scrambled eggs!  I've never made muffins with scrambled eggs; I just had to give them a try.

The muffins were great.  They are packed full of cheese, bacon and scrambled eggs.  These muffins are quick and easy to make, plus they freeze well.  They are a great breakfast on-the-go!  If you aren't a fan of bacon, feel free to switch it out with sausage or ham.   You could also add some peppers, onions or whatever else you like!

  4. These sound amazing. Too bad it is so late at night- otherwise I might be tempted to make them now!

    1. I would cook them first, but either way should be fine.

    1. 4 of the eggs are scrambled and mixed in the muffin batter

    2. To clarify - the eggs are scrambled, cooked in a frying pan then added to the batter? I hope that's right as that's how I made them. They came out delicious! I threw in some sauteed onion and extra bacon. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
