Savoury Muffins to get kids eating vegetables | Egg Muffins | Kukskitchen


I struggle to get any vegetable down my little one. I frequently try to disguise them but kids now-a-days, as sharp as they are, realise the difference in taste and pick them out. So I changed my strategy. I will tell him what is in there but club it with some thing he finds really yummy.

Presented below is one such invention - Savoury muffin. He likes muffins (who doesn't!!) and he likes eggs and sausages. I have tried various vegetables in this muffin and he eats them hands down each time. Amma 1- Mathai 0. 

Make sure you serve with carbs in some form to make it a balanced meal. These yummy muffins go well with potato wedges and ketchup. To make them at home, blanch cleaned and wedged potatoes in boiling water for 6-8 mts. Drain and dry. Toss them in salt and pepper and a pinch of red chilli powder and oven bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes.



A few things before we start:


  • Use egg whites alone for a low fat high protein snack.
  • Use any vegetable you like or rather your chottas doesn't like. Make sure to cut them in to bite size pieces.  
  • Add bacon bits for extra flavor.
  • Add a few pieces of cooked potatoes to add carbs.
  • Whisk eggs for  a good few minutes for a souffle effect.
  • I used hot dogs on this occasion
  • You can use fresh or frozen vegetables, works well either way.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
