YUM…I just love recycling food into other options…like roasting vegetables and making them into a frittata with roasted vegetables!…
My deviled eggs with a twist are going to knock your socks off!
Poached eggs with grilled vegetables and steamed green beans was an inspiration from one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles, Bottega Louie. This was my inspiration as the moment I took my first bite I knew I was in heaven.
Gluten free foods have been such a craze here in California it’s also been more of a challenge when inviting friends as pasta and bread has been a huge part of my life. Today I am sharing a gluten free quiche recipe using yams as the crust, I know you will love this recipe!
A homemade frittata is one of the simplest things to make and allows you to take advantage of the vegetables that are in season. Here is my recipe for a squash blossom frittata.
WOW…it has been almost 2 years since I last did baked eggs in a tin recipe and while I loved by baked eggs two years ago, I love these baked eggs even more. Why is that you may ask, well, I have had some healthy issues recently and decided to change my eating habits wherever I could. My original recipe included cheese, prosciutto, scallions and other choice ingredients, for this recipe I simplified and made it a little healthier, I used ham (or turkey), a small amount of pesto and that’s it! It’s the same concept as my original recipe and here is how I did it!
Just like my other recipe for baked eggs, I placed a piece of turkey (and ham) and used it as my holder for the baked eggs
I put a 1/4 teaspoon of pesto in each cup and using a toothpick I swirled it around, this way there would be flavor in every bite
in the ham baked eggs, I put some chopped sun dried tomatoes and swirled it around as well
for the turkey I used artichoke hearts (all of the ingredients I had at home)
a little black pepper and this is how my tray looked prior to baking…no cheese for this recipe as I was keeping it really healthy!
and after 18 minutes
I removed the baked eggs from the pan…the ham cooked up a lot better than the turkey as you can see from the photo, even with the same baking times
I had a soft yolk, so when I would reheat they would cook up again
According to my program from MacGourmet, each serving is under 150 calories, total fat is under 5g and protein is 13 grams…not too bad for a delicious and easy breakfast! This healthy recipe for baked eggs is high in protein thanks to the mean and egg, low in carbs as there is no cheese or fatty meats. I would not omit the pesto as you need it for flavor since there is no cheese but if you wanted to omit the sun dried tomatoes or the artichoke hearts that would be fine.
On a separate note: for my other baked eggs recipe, I baked the eggs at 400 degrees at a shorter time, this time I baked them at 350 for a little longer and I preferred them this way as I wanted a softer yolk.

Hey there, I again have to apologize for the lack of posting. For my friends and family, you all know there has been a lot of change going on in my life and for everyone else all I can do is ask for is patience until I get through the next few months.
Not only is there change in my personal life but I also have met with a nutritionist who changed my whole eating pattern so I’ve been on a strict “diet” but not really a diet just a change of food for my metabolism. So basically I’ve been eating salmon, shrimp, salads some pasta and other grains. I’m just figuring out some of my favorite recipes so look out for those!
As you all know, I love to make breakfast and do brunch…I love everything about breakfast from the coffee to the sweet and savory dishes. I like to experiment with it all and try new things and yet I always try to to do my “tried and true” recipes as well. The one thing I believe in in entertaining a group, is it’s great to have both the savory and sweet so everyone is happy and anything you can do ahead of time or that does not take away from me enjoying my brunch is even better.
One morning Kelsi and I were just hanging out and we were looking up images on Pinterest for egg dishes. We had seen many recipes using bacon with eggs and then baked in a cupcake pan, so we decided to create our own recipe for healthy baked eggs by using what we had on hand (we did not have bacon on hand).
This is a great recipe for healthy baked eggs that you can make for a large group and as you can customize it to your own likings as well. I only made six as it was all the eggs I had on hand but my cupcake pan can do 30.
So basically you take your baking pan and spray it, put your favorite deli meats (I used prosciutto and turkey as it’s what I had on hand) in the pan and cover the pan completely with the meat, 1 per each cup
We broke each egg in a separate dish to avoid egg shells
and then we put the egg on top of the deli meat, yes that’s Kelsi helping me 🙂
then we cut up of our favorite toppings like cheese, cheese and chives
we seasoned our eggs and then we put our favorite mixes on each egg
we covered with chives and added mozzarella cheese on some
we baked them in the oven, look how crispy the edges got on the deli meats
removed them and served
This is a great dish to make if you are entertaining and you want something a little personal and unique. It can be modified to your likings and can be made in large batches. Your guests will love them, I promise! Here is another recipe I did for healthy baked eggs!
