Scrambled Egg Muffins – A Gastroparesis Friendly Food!

February 20th, 2015 by Carrie, the Just Mildly Medicated gal

Scrambled Eggs Muffins (Yeah for easy Gastroparesis friendly foods!)

I am not reinventing the wheel here, this recipe has been done many times over, Martha Stewart even had it on her show a million years ago. It is however new at the Just Mildly Medicated house and I wanted to share it.

Many people with autonomic issues deal with Gastroparesis, Gastroparesis is a motility disorder where part of your stomach in paralyzed making it harder to digest food properly. Three of the six of us in my crew deal with Gastroparesis and one of them also has Celiac Disease. Needless to say finding easy meals that are also easy to tolerate is always a plus.

Eggs can be a go to food for those with Gastroparesis, but I am no super mom and am not making scrambled eggs for breakfast everyday. So when I saw the idea of making them in a muffin tin, giving us multiple servings to last a few days while only having to make them once, I was excited.

I grabbed the closest kids and said “Let’s try something” and they are willing to do anything in the kitchen (as long as it doesn’t involve any actual cleaning).

This is crazy easy!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray

Eggs (we used a dozen)

milk (we used skim and I just eye ball it like I would for scrambled eggs)

cheese, ham, red pepper, literally anything you’d like to add!!

I had cheese and ham on hand so that what we went with.

crack them eggs and add some milk, I put the mixers to work…

Then I put some in each muffin tin and allowed the kids to add the extras

We did a row of cheese, a row of ham, and a row of ham and cheese ;)

Then put them in the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes.

You can eat them right away or put them in a zip lock bag and then each morning I wrap them in a paper towel and pop them in the microwave (mine takes about 45 seconds).

Lesson learned… label this zip lock with what type of egg muffin is inside hahaha

These two kiddos are on their second scrambled egg muffin which means SUCCESS!
