Egg & Rice Baked Muffins


This is one of an interesting and healthy breakfast recipe which is prepared using eggs, bell peppers and rice. Mixed herbs and chilli flakes along with a grated cheese are added as the seasoning to this muffins. In this recipe, I have used three varieties of Bell peppers, since it was given as my secret ingredients by Shobana Keshwani in Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge group.

According to our February month challenge, we have to choose either Colorful recipe or Fusion cooking. Me and my partner Shobana, an amazing blogger from www.shobhasfoodmazaa.com chose colourful recipes as our theme. Check out her page to view an interesting, healthy and colourful Idlies prepared by her for this theme.

To enhance the flavour in this recipe, variations can also be made by adding garlic powder, shredded chicken, bacon, sausages, veggies like broccoli, mushroom etc. Adjust the quantity of the red chilli flakes according to taste bud and also this can be replaced with finely chopped green chillies. To make it more healthy, replace white rice using brown rice. This recipe can also be served as Kids lunch box recipe or evening snacks.


Ingredients :

4 Eggs 
1/2 Cup Coloured Bell Peppers, Finely chopped 
1/4 Cup Cooked Rice 
1 Cheese cube, grated
1 Tsp Mixed Italian herbs, dried
