Egg and chorizo breakfast muffins

Posted by Joe Wicks in Recipes

These are so easy and fast to make. They include chorizo and cheese too so you know they'll taste awesome. They make a brilliant low-carb breakfast on the go or a snack at lunch.

This a banging recipe from my new book. You can get it here: 'Cooking For Family & Friends'. 

Makes 10

PREP 10 mins

COOK 30 mins

Equipment: 12-hole muffin tin


½ tbsp coconut oil

120g cooking chorizo, roughly chopped into 1cm pieces

10 eggs

1 courgette, grated

large handful of baby spinach

75g pizza mozzarella, grated

4 spring onions, finely sliced

salt and pepper

a little butter, for greasing


Preheat your oven to 180ºC (fan 160℃/gas mark 4).

Melt the oil in a frying pan over a medium to high heat. When it is hot, add the chorizo and fry, stirring regularly for 3 minutes, or until the chorizo is cooked through. Remove it from the frying pan to a clean piece of kitchen roll to blot off some of the oil.

Crack the eggs into a large bowl and give them a good whisk. Add the grated courgette, spinach, grated mozzarella, sliced spring onions and finally the cooling chorizo. Season with a little salt and pepper and then give the whole lot a good stir.

Grease the muffin tin with the butter and then spoon equal amounts of the egg mixture into ten of the holes, trying to distribute the ingredients as evenly as you can.

Carefully slide the tin into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are fully cooked through and lightly golden on top.

Don’t attempt to take the muffins out of the tin immediately, as they might break up. Give them a few minutes to cool, then get stuck in.
