  • SERVES 12
  • PREPARATION TIME 20 Minutes
  • COOKING TIME 20 Minutes
  • Light olive oil spray
  • 6 eggs
  • Sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper
  •   
  • For the flavour combinations:
  • Crumbled feta, olives and finely chopped fresh chilli or chilli flakes
  • Grated Parmesan, finely chopped spring onions and diced tomato
  • Smoked fish (trout, mackerel or salmon), chopped into small pieces,
  • Chopped dill and natural yoghurt
  • For the salsa:
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • Handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped 
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp runny honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/fan 180ºC/gas mark 5. 
  2. Spray 12 holes of a muffin tin with olive oil, brushing each hole to coat really well, then place in the oven.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a jug with a splash of water and salt and pepper.
  4. Take the hot tin out of the oven and pour in the egg mixture to fill halfway up each hole, then top each one with your chosen ingredients. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.
  5. Meanwhile, peel, stone and dice the avocado, then combine in a bowl with the spring onion and parsley, adding the lemon juice and a little honey to balance the acidity. Season to taste.
  6. Remove the muffins from the oven and leave to cool for a minute or two. Remove from the tray – they may stick a bit so use a palette knife to release the sides. Serve with the avocado salsa.
