Sweet Potato and Spinach Egg Muffin topped with Gruyere + WIAW

Happy No Waste Wednesday!

Every Wednesdays I create a new dish using the ingredients from Monday in hopes that you guys don’t get tired of eating the same leftovers, forget about them or worst throw them out!

You’ve heard me talk about the importance of eating breakfast and you’ve also heard me talk about my hectic schedule. Finding dishes that are quick and convenience are crucial! While I typically go for a smoothie or a yogurt bowl in the morning there are times when I crave something savory that’s just as quick and convenient.  In today’s No Waste Wednesday (NWW) recipe I’m using my leftover sweet potato noodles to create scrumptious and hearty egg muffins. They are perfect grab and go breakfast when you’re pressed for time.

Sweet Potato & Spinach Egg Muffins Topped with Gruyere 

Seasoned with turmeric and cinnamon. Drizzled with coconut oil. Baked in a 350 degree oven until crispy. These sweet potato noodles were scrumptious! But I grew tired of eating them for lunch/dinner and knew it was time for me to get creative. I layered the sweet potato noodles at the bottom of my mini muffin tins, added a small amount of frozen spinach and evenly poured 4 scrambled eggs that I seasoned lightly with salt and turmeric. I then added a thin slice of Gruyere on top before placing them in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes. I make these ahead of time and simply grab 2-3 egg mini muffins each morning on my way to school/work. Quick, Easy and Delicious!

SNACK
