Okay, so I could have called this recipe something fancy, but quite frankly, I couldn’t be stuffed!
I have been talking with some other bloggy mums about being real and authentic.
I figure you have already worked out that I keep things pretty real. My food styling leaves a lot to be desired, I have appeared on the blog in a face mask and my dressing gown and I had a melt-down about what I found in my son’s shoe drawer that time.
Just a few examples.
I would hate anyone to think I am a natural, new age mum 100% of the time.
I try, I aspire, but I am only human. I just do the best I can.
Anyway, what has all that go to do with these eggy things?
Well this is a perfect recipe for those times you really can’t be stuffed cooking!
On those slack days where I just am so tired or would rather be blogging, I whip up these little gems and no-one is any the wiser.
Hot tip: make lots and you can use them for breakfast or lunch boxes the next day.
Super-slack mum for the win! (I’m not sure what that means, but all the cool kids are saying it)
I’m so slack, I don’t even have a real recipe, but here you go anyway.
Egg Thingys for Slack Mums
grain-free, gluten-free, nut-free
Okay, so this is what you need:
organic, free range eggs
organic or nitrate free bacon, diced
green shallots, chopped
baby spinach, shredded
fetta or ricotta, diced or crumbled roughly
herbs, salt and pepper
whatever else needs using up in the fridge (leftover veges are perfect)
Okay, so this is what you do:
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Get out your muffin tin and line it with some cupcake papers.
Now, don’t be slack and skip this step. If you don’t use papers, you will be cleaning out that stuck on egg for days.
Trust me on this one.
I like to use the non-stick, non-toxic ones by If You Care (pictured)
Divide up all the ingredients except the eggs and put evenly into the muffin tin.
Don’t put too much in or you will get spillage (and that involves cleaning!).
Crack an egg into each one. Whack into the oven. Go put your feet up.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until egg is firm.
Fling onto a plate, serve up for dinner. If you are feeling not so slack, add some salad.

What do you like to make for dinner when you can’t be stuffed? I’d love to know !
