1 1/2 ground beef
3 bags of frozen spinach (thawed)
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves of, garlic minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp coconut oil (I buy organic, extra virgin)
3 large eggs, beaten
12 cup muffin pan
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Empty your thawed spinach in a
colander and with the back of a wooden spoon, press down to drain all of the
liquid -you should end up with a ball of clumped spinach.
3. Heat a large
saute pan with 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Add onions and garlic, saute for about 3
min till onions are tender and translucent. Add the ground beef, continue to
saute until browned, about 5-7 min. Add the spinach and mix just until
incorporated. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
4. Turn heat
off, add the beaten eggs and mix well into the spinach/ground beef
5. Measure 1/2 cups of the meat mixture into the lined muffin
pan(you should have enough for 12 muffins)
6. Bake at 375 for 35-40
*Leftovers may be
refrigerated and heated up before serving.
Here's what I
will do next time:
Add sliced button or cremini mushrooms for a meat,
