As students, we all have those days when skipping breakfast for the sake of those 15 extra minutes in bed is too tempting and I’m no exception. However, the first meal of the day is the most important one so I’ve decided to share with you a recipe that is easy, delicious and super practical – you’ll have breakfast for a week!

Ingredients You’ll Need


  • 6 eggs
  • Bacon (as much or as little as you would like – or skip if you’re vegetarian)
  • Spinach or kale
  • Onion (a quarter)
  • Mushrooms (to taste)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (to taste)

Kitchen tools / utensils: 

  • Muffin tin (with 6 cups)
  • Oven
  • Stove

Step #5

Its time to assemble everything: Add a little bit of bacon, onion, mushroom and spinach (or kale) to each of the eggs. Stir it once again so you get a bit of everything in every bite.  Add some cheddar cheese on top.

Step #6

Let it cook in a pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes – make sure you check it every once in a while.

When the ‘little omelettes’ are golden, remove the tin from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes.  This will allow the eggs to separate from the tin bottom and they’ll be easier to take out.

Step #7

All you have to do now is store the egg muffins in a container and enjoy one every morning. Et voilá, you’ll have breakfast for 6 days!
