I call these ones High Protein Smoked Tofu Breakfast Egg Cups (in short: HPSTBEC). Ok, the name is clumsy, but I felt all the words needed to be in there. Feel free to suggest a better name in the comments 🙂
So these breakfast egg muffins taste like Tarte Flambee.
And beautifully it does! Not only taste-wise, but also protein-wise. In the recipe I suggest to have four muffins as one serving to really be satisfied.
This means you’d be getting 22 grams of protein, bam! That is really high for a vegetarian breakfast dish!
Try them out, we’re curious to hear how you liked this breakfast egg cup version!

This looks incredibly good. I can’t find smoked tofu. Is regular tofu ok?
Hi Cindy, yes that will still be fine – I’d maybe add some extra herbs to give it more of a flavour bang (or even a dash of smoked paprika if you can find it 🙂 ) enjoy!
Loved these. For anyone else that can’t find smoked tofu, I used regular tofu, but subbed the regular cheddar for smoked cheddar, result was delish.
Nice thinking! That sounds awesome as well. Thanks for the tip, Emma!
Just some small confusion – the standard serving size is 4 muffins?
Hi Bri! One serving size is 3 muffins 🙂
That isn’t correct according to the recipe.
The recipe says 3 Servings = 12 muffins.
If it were 3 muffins for one serving, then it would say “3 Servings = 9 Muffins.”
So is it 3 muffins or 4 muffins?
Hi Emily, now you got me confused for a moment as well, haha. But I think it’s correct as is:
1 serving = 4 muffins. 3 servings = 12 muffins.
I hope that helped 🙂
These are incredible, and have become a breakfast staple for me. I whip up a batch on Sunday and eat them all week. Couldn’t be easier to make and they’re so delicious! This is my first experience cooking with smoked tofu and now I want to find a way to put it in everything. 🙂
Woohoo! That’s awesome to hear, Amy, and just what we’re aiming for :). Thanks for writing!
Hii these look amazing and simple to do.
If I make them in the evening is it safe to pop them in the fridge and heat them the next morning ?
Best wishes, Alice.
Hi, yes you can! They’re also really nice cold, so I often take them with me for lunch and don’t reheat 🙂
These were great, thank you 🙂 how do you suggest I store the extra muffins ?
Looks very good and I like to add muffins in my life is a great way to start.
Hi can I skip the leek? And should I replace it with someone else if so what?
Hi, yes for sure! Spring onion could also replace it, or maybe some chives if you have them (dried/frozen would be totally fine, too) 🙂 enjoy!
Are we sure this is healthy if it has such high levels of saturated fat and cholesterol or am I missing something?
Fair shout! I think these can fit very well into a healthy diet. 7g satfat is still within means imho. And yep, if you wanna balance out your cholesterol, you’d need to skip eggs in the next day or two. 🙂
You could try Egg Beaters egg whites, and low fat cheese too, available at Trader Joes.
Can these be frozen? How long? Thanks
Hi Leila, I haven’t tried it yet (they normally get eaten very quickly around here) but looking at the ingredients it would look like they’re absolutely fine to freeze! I don’t see why not at all. I’d imagine they’re very tasty reheated, too
