Full English Breakfast Muffins

If you’re anything like me there’s never enough time in the morning to cook a delicious breakfast.  Mornings are always a rush and there’s only ever time to grab something quick to eat, but breakfast is so important so I’m trying to be more organised at the weekends and cook things that I can eat throughout the week.  An English Breakfast is a luxury I can usually only afford at the weekends…but no more!  These Full English Breakfast Muffins can be made in advance meaning you can have the taste of a full Fry-Up everyday of the week!  You can eat them cold from the fridge or re-heat them in the oven or microwave.  If you make a huge batch you’ll always have something healthy in the fridge to grab as you run out the door.Full English Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Dairyfree, Refined Sugarfree, Paleo, SCD, Whole30, Low Carb, LCHF

These Full English Breakfast Muffins are so easy to make,  you can even pre-cook the bacon and sausage the day before to make the assembly even faster in the morning if you like.  Start by heating up the grill.  Prick the sausages and grill until they are browned all over and cooked through (6-8 minutes).  You could also fry your sausages if you prefer to do it that way.  Make sure that you get sausages that have no breadcrumbs or fillers in them.  Marks & Spencers chipolatas are just pork, salt, pepper and spices and are the most readily available to me so that’s what I normally use.  There are quite a few other brands out there too though or you could ask your local butcher to make you some up!

Switch off the grill and preheat the oven to 200C (390F).  Chop the bacon up into small pieces – I find it easiest with scissors – and fry until crispy.

Slice up the sausages into pieces about half a centimetre thick and allow them to cool along with the bacon, while you prepare the eggs.

Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the oregano.  Season very well with salt and pepper and whisk together to combine the whites and yolks.  Then add the bacon and sausage to the egg mixture and stir well.

Using a ladle, pour the egg mixture into a non-stick muffin tray (or grease a muffin tray beforehand if you don’t have non-stick).Full English Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Dairyfree, Refined Sugarfree, Paleo, SCD, Whole30, Low Carb, LCHF

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until cooked through.  They will puff  up and go golden brown when they’re ready!Full English Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Dairyfree, Refined Sugarfree, Paleo, SCD, Whole30, Low Carb, LCHF

 

Perfect for a lazy brunch, a quick and easy grab-and go breakfast or they can even be packed into lunch-boxes.  They will last in the fridge for a week, or you could even freeze them and defrost as needed. High in protein, they will definitely keep you full until lunch.  If you like tomatoes with your Full English Breakfast you could add those, or mushrooms or anything that takes your fancy.  They’re so easy to adapt.  I also make a vegetarian version – my Cheesy Courgette (Zucchini) Frittata Muffins or if you prefer something spicier, my Chorizo & Butternut Squash Frittata is also a great alternative!

  1. These sound so amazing. I am so lazy in the morning so I really need something like this that I can make ahead of time and just grab and go. Thanks for the recipe!!

  2. With so many of us being so ridiculously time-poor these days, this looks to be absolutely great for cooking up on the weekends for the weekdays as you suggest. Easy to heat up before heading out the door and you would actually feel like you had a cooked breakfast! Got to do this!

  3. I love breakfast, especially at the weekend when you can sit down and enjoy the food while catching up with the family or housemates on what was happening in the past week. This muffins totally looks delicious and yummy!

  4. I’m all for quick and filling! Mornings are always hectic around this way. And they have everything I love!

  5. Yum! These breakfast muffins look incredible. I’m assuming they freeze well, in which case, I will definitely make double batches for the freezer, for a quick grab and go mid week breakfast.

  6. I’d easily eat this for breakfast lunch and dinner if I could haha. Looks very very tasty and definitely up my street 😉

  7. What a wonderful and delicious idea! My husband is awful about eating breakfast .. so I’m going to make some this week. I bet if there’s something easy and quick in the fridge he’ll change his ways! I’m also betting they would freeze nicely. I’m always looking for freezer meals to take to my kids when I visit. That way when I’m gone they can warm their tummies with a little something from mom

  8. Wow they look amazing! And look so easy to take on the go as it’s all in one, thanks for the great idea ☺️

  9. I have actually made this several times and they always turn out great but I have always added cheese to the recipe but now that I’m on a paleo diet dairy is restricted.

  10. As a nototrious foodie enthusiast for everything -breakfast- related food, this recipe is going to be a part of my morning ritual soon! Thank you for sharing!

  14. Ohh goodness! Been searching for muffins recipe. Good thing I came over your post. Thanks for sharing! Hopefully I can perfectly make one.

  15. I just made muffins with bacon in them, now I have to make these. I feel like my husband would go crazy after these!

  16. This looks tasty. I might remove couple of ingredients and make it my way and enjoy. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

  17. What a brilliant idea to turn an English breakfast into muffins! I can imagine how delicious they are, with the crunch of the bacon and the softness of the eggs. I could have some right now, just before dinner 🙂

  18. Another tasty looking meal. I must say, that I look forward to seeing what you cook weekly. Today, I start my no sugar and dairy and I’m going to try to make this tomorrow for breakfast.

  19. The breakfast looks delicious and healthy. I am usually not a muffin person but once in a while I like to rotate my breakfast
