Recipes: Three easy & delicious egg breakfast muffins

As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! That’s why it’s essential to make sure you start your day with a nutritious, balanced meal which is going to keep you satisfied and energised all morning long.

We love to incorporate eggs into most of our breakfast meals — not only are they full of protein, vitamins and minerals, but they’re also super versatile. Scrambled or fried, boiled or poached, the options are truly endless!

Here’s a delicious option you might not have thought about though — egg muffins. They’re so quick and easy to make, and packed full of flavour. Plus, with these three different recipes; courtesy of Aldi; you’ll never get bored with breakfast again.
