Breakfast is always the trickiest meal of the day for our family. We love our sleep, and don’t want to waste a moment of our precious rest on a mediocre breakfast.

However the mommy in me wants everyone to get a healthy protein and vitamin packed meal to start the day off right.

Servings: 16 muffins


  • 12 large eggs
  • ounces cream cheese (low-fat optional)
  • 4 ounces plain greek yogurt (low-fat optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Thoroughly spray standard muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place the eggs, cream cheese, yogurt, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne in the food processor. Pulse until smooth. Press the spinach firmly in a colander to remove all excess moisture. Then stir the spinach and shredded cheddar into the egg mixture.

  3. I made these because I am pregnant with triplets (!!!) and need to eat tons and tons of protein. Between the eggs, cheeses and the Greek yogurt, these are so packed with good stuff. The only change I would make is that mine came out a little salty. I would cut the amount of salt in half. If I decide to add any meats in the future I’d probably skip the salt altogether.

  4. are the nutritional facts based on the smaller muffin size or larger?

  5. what a great breakfast. thank you.

  6. Can u use fresh spinach?

  8. Do you think these could be frozen?

    • Hi DC,

      You know, I haven’t actually tried freezing them. Usually we eat all the muffins within 3-4 days. However, I don’t see why you couldn’t freeze them. :)

  9. What a great on the go breakfast!

  10. Hi Sommer!!

    I am not a fan of spinach, do you think kale would be a suitable substitute?

  11. Do think I could a little cooked sausage in the recipe?

  12. These look wonderful, however I need the nutrition info, is that available?
