Fresh basil, salty feta, tangy sun-dried tomatoes and sweet cherry tomatoes: that’s the beautiful combo that gives these healthy egg muffins the name ‘Italian Style’.

Now some might say, isn’t feta cheese strictly Greek? Well, yes and no. The Greek word feta (φέτα) stemms from the Italian word fetta, which means ‘slice’. Here is the info on wikipedia. Buuut I have to admit this style of cheese originates from Greece. It just got an Italian name along the way somehow.

So, I think I can get away with Italian-Style Breakfast Egg Muffins.

Also, these egg muffins are intense (and immense), I tell you! The feta and the sun-dried tomatoes really do their thing to make them an absolute joy to eat.

Below, in the recipe, you’ll find that four muffins are one serving. I think that’s the right amount to feel satisfied in the morning. Otherwise, they also work excellently as a snack!

We also have more tasty egg cups – right this way! So yummy.

  1. Looks delicious – how much basil? Thanks!

    • Hi Tina – oh, good point! The basil has disappeared somewhere along the line. I will re-add it now, thanks! About 1/8 cup should do it 🙂

      • Thanks Dave, appreciate the quick response! I’m looking forward to making them this weekend. Thx again 🙂

  2. How do you reheat I’m making a large batch

    • Hi Al, I re-heat them using a microwave. It’s also possible to just chuck them in the oven again on 100C.
      I’d say you could even put them in a pan on low heat with a lid on top for 5 mins. All three options worked for me already 🙂
