Egg Flowers: The Healthiest 15 Minute Make-Ahead Breakfast Ever


In the morning making breakfast is absolutely the last thing I want to do. I don’t eat it often out of pure laziness. I know, right? Succumb to apathy, slow down your metabolism, and eat something nuts for lunch to make up for the lack of protein in the A.M.  Shame on me. Shame on you.
Let’s solve that dilemma, yes? Enter the make-ahead breakfast of true champions everywhere: egg muffins without the carb factor. Yes, just straight up baked eggs with a veggie or two thrown in along with good fats to start your day right. No reason to get bogged down with a gluten out the gate. Trust me – eating clean in the morning will have a remarkably kind effect on your cravings the rest of the day.

I’m going to call these “Egg Flowers” because of the nice way the zucchini cups the egg like the petals on a flower. Don’t worry about your design skills however as these Egg Flowers are so easy to bake even a child with a supervising adult could make them, lols. You’ll just need a mandolin to slice the zucchini into thin pieces to create the flower that will hold each egg inside of it. Add tons of fresh herbs and you’ll have a flavor festival in your mouth you won’t soon forget. If you make a batch of 12 or 24 you’ll have enough Egg Flowers to keep your appetite in check for at least 5 days (I’d toss any leftovers after that period for food safety).

  1. Lo- which mandolin do you recommend? I have a bunch of gift cards to crate and barrrel and Williams Sonoma from my bridal shower and don’t have one yet. Think I need to get one now ; ) Also which specific herbs and spices did you use to make your egg flowers?

    1. I used rosemary (but you could add thyme too) and salt and pepper. Any mandolin from CB or WS will do fine! I think I have a $15 that I found on Amazon – they all work pretty well as long as it’s sturdy!

  2. Hey Lo! Quick q- how long do these last in the fridge? Can I make on a Sunday night and enjoy 1 for breakfast all week without them going bad? Safe to heat up quick in the microwave? Thanks

    1. I’d give them 5 days! Give them 20ish seconds in the microwave and add increments of 10 seconds til there warm enough. I just re-heated mine for 15 seconds and they were still cool but not fridge cold anymore!

  3. How would you recommend refrigerating them? Should I just put them all on a plate then pop them in the fridge with some tinfoil on top?

  4. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: {} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
