Spinach, Chorizo and Capsicum Mufflettes

mufflette2 Somewhere between a muffin and an omelette, these Spinach, Chorizo and Capsicum “Muff-lettes” are packed full of protein and are super easy to make.

 

 

 

If you find yourself a little time poor in the morning, making up a batch of these in advance is a great idea. Not only are they great for breakfast but they are based on eggs so they are perfect for a post workout snack.

To make these, you will need a 12 holed muffin (or cupcake) tray.

Variations

If you are feeling creative (or your don’t have any chorizo, spinach or capsicum in your fridge), substitute with your favourite omelette fillings. For example,  you could substitute the spinach with shredded kale, or wombok cabbage. The Chorizo could be substituted with shredded cooked chicken, smoked salmon or perhaps mushrooms. For something really different and a little spicy, you could even substitute the spinach with finely cut kimchi. Enjoy x M
