When the whole Egg Muffin craze hit the internet, I thought it was so convenient and creative. I tried my hand at a few recipes I found for my egg loving husband. He loved the concept but wanted more flavor so that he could also enjoy them for dinner some nights. He has trained his taste buds over the years to require a lot of spice and flavor. If it isn’t packed with masala he won’t eat it.
I had been making this masala omelet for him since we got married, so I thought what if I merge the two and create a healthier version essentially of the masala omelet. So, the Masala Egg Muffins were born!
These are packed with flavor and spice, Perfect to make sandwiches with or to enjoy at your entree with a side salad or some garlic bread. I make these in giant batches and keep them in the fridge. Somehow no matter how many I make, they never last more than a couple days.
