Leggo My Egg… ffin

This past weekend I had a derby promo photo shoot.  


I missed the original date due to my Jay Leno-esque swelling.

Fact: I do not like having my picture taken for anything outside of a quick snapshot.  It makes me self-conscious.

There were cool.  My team’s theme is “We Mean Business.”

Thank you, Tim Moxley, for doing an incredible job and making me laugh a little through the terror. :)

Let’s talk about what I didn’t burn…


Eggs.  Muffins.  The staples of breakfast.  It’s only natural that they become one.

Machessmo did a great job re-creating the Egg McMuffin.  But I need something even more simple with my tardy record.

This literally took 5 mins to throw together.  They can be prepared in advance in the oven as instructed below… or the lazy way.  Zap it in the micro for 15 secs and I have a hot, grab-and-go breakfast for the week (well, this and a Greek yogurt).


You can add different spices and veggies to shake it up:

  • Feta cheese and onion
  • Bacon (fake or real) and cheddar
  • Soysauge and brie
  • Capers and cream cheese
  • Herbs (NOT those herbs)


The sky is the limit! Take that, sugar-filled/fake-looking egg fast food options.



  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg whites (1/2 cup if you buy them in a carton)
  • 1 C spinach, rough chopped
  • 1/4 C cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 C red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1.5 oz herbed goat cheese
  • 1 T unsweetened almond milk
  • S+P, to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease 4 ramekins with olive oil.

In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs.  Add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine.  Distribute evenly among the 4 ramekins (or 4 spaces in a large muffin tin).

Place in oven and cook for 20 mins.  Finish on broil for 1-2 mins to solidify tops (if necessary).


Be sure to guard your eggfin


Tonight I’m having friends over for a vegetarian dinner.  I cannot wait to share these creations tomorrow!

Yes, we all eat animal products in one form or another.  It’s fun to change it up!

What is your favorite hot, non-oatmeal week-day breakfast?

    I love the eggfin idea and I LOVE your pictures! You have such strong facial features, that compliment your hairstyle so well. I only wish I could have hair like yours! You’re gorgeous!

      You just made my day! Thank you!!! You should know – I have hair-envy every time I see your pic. :)

    These look yummy! And, what a cute kitty! did she get one? i bet she’d like her Eggfin with some tuna!
    Love your pics! You’re my Beautiful Baby!

      I tried to give her a bite and she wasn’t feeling it. She also doesn’t like her cat treats. Picky cat!

    1. I was going to comment about how professional your pics look and then realized they are professional and now I want to go to glamor shots because they turned out so well
    2. anything made in the microwave? yes. those looks amazing! and yet another recipe that combines things I’m trying to incorporate into my diet (more spinach, eggs, actual meals rather than snacking…)
    3. I am going to preface this with “I don’t like cats” but that picture is so cute! seriously, for me to say that about an animal (ESP about a cat) is a big–understatement– deal

      1. I think there was a Groupon for Glamor Shots a few weeks back…
      2. Totally customizable. And easy. you could probably put it in a mug and microwave single servings from a raw-state.
      3. Thank you!!! I love her a little. :)
