Over the last few weeks, I’ve been on a journey with Denny Mushrooms to spread the word on their mission to #AddGoodness to many South Africans, who have been hit hard by our pandemic and struggling to afford meals.
In my first post, I mentioned that I would share my favorite way to prepare mushrooms and mine is by making egg and mushroom muffins! Mushrooms are such a dynamic source of nutrients and can be paired with almost any meal, at any time of the day!
Egg and Mushrooms muffins are quick and tasty way to prepare a treat for breakfast or healthy snacks that can be warmed up on-the-go. In addition, if your children are fussy eaters like mine, you can “hide” nutrient-packed ingredients in them, without them noticing and they can always be kept in the refrigerator until you need them.
How to make egg and mushroom muffins:
- 1 bowl of mushrooms (I used Denny baby-button mushrooms)
- 6 Eggs
- Quater diced onion
- Diced bacon/macon/mince
If you prefer different ingredients, these would also work with spinach, cheese and peppers.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees
- Fry your bacon in a little bit of olive oil
- In a large bowl, whisk your your eggs. Then add your onion, salt and pepper
- Spray your muffin pan with a non-stick oil spray
- Add your egg mixture 3/4 of the way, then add your: mushrooms, bacon, garlic and tomato.
- Pop into the oven for 15 minutes
- Enjoy with toast, avocado and pesto
- If you want to store them to eat at a later stage, keep them in an airtight container.

How to #ADDGoodness in the lives of others:
To date, we have raised close to R10,000 for Food Forward SA, who procure much-needed food items to distribute to vulnerable communities around South Africa, who are without food. There is still a very long way to go until we see economic recovery and millions of people who are displaced from their homes and jobs, start to make a living again.
By visiting www.addgoodness.co.za and donating any amount that you can afford, you could help a few families. Donations can be from R10 and every entry will be entered into a draw to win a Denny Mushroom hamper. It’s quick to donate and the payment gate is safe and secure.
