Breakfast-on-the-Go Egg Muffins

The Divas are not morning people, getting up to go to work is painful, we prefer a lengthy morning lounging in bed with our coffee and a good book. Instead we must wake up early and run to the office like peasants! We usually wake up cranky, hungry and in need of caffeine – and these healthy Breakfast-on-the-Go Egg Muffins can be made in advance, we pop them in the toaster oven before our shower, or microwave them. We always enjoy them with our cappuccino before dashing to the office. They’re very versatile, you can use different vegetables and fresh herbs, and even omit the meat and make the egg cups vegetarian, but that’s no fun!
