Scrambled egg muffins are my lazy version of a crust-less mini quiche. They are a great thing to pop into your oven in the morning while you get ready for the day. Simply whisk the eggs, chop the veggies, add them to the egg and divide evenly into each of the wells of a standard 12-cup muffin pan. Easy, breezy, beautiful (anyone else grow up watching too many Covergirl commercials, yikes – the things imprinted in my brain).

Scrambled egg muffins represent a familiar dish (just like scrambled eggs) born again in muffin form. Each scrambled egg muffin pops out in individual servings that can help simplify meal planning and meal prep. Double the recipe and freeze your leftovers, as needed.
If you are a fan of egg muffin recipes as much as I am, be sure to try the Tomato Zucchini Egg Cup. This Garlic and Zucchini Scrambled Egg Muffin recipe uses whisked eggs to achieve the scrambled effect, when making the Tomato Zucchini Egg Cup the egg is cracked directly into each muffin space. A direct crack leaves the yolk whole, resting on top while the whites drip down to encase the vegetables below. They present well and look pretty, I would serve these at a brunch or family breakfast.

Benefits of Adding Seaweed to a Scrambled Egg Muffin
In the Tomato Zucchini Egg Cup I used powdered kelp, which is purchased as dried powder or granules. Known to be rich in iodine, an array of minerals, and trace elements, kelp is a sea based spice that can be used as an alternative to mineral salt. In this recipe, I opt for dulse flakes. Dulse is another mineral dense sea grass and adds a very unique flavor. In the Primal Edge Health kitchen, I always strive to increase the nutrient density of our recipes, ingredients like seaweed do just that!
