  • 1 & ¼ Cup Active and Bubbly Sourdough Starter Feed the night before
  • 6 Eggs
  • ¼ Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper Finely Chopped
  • 5-6 Baby Bella Mushrooms Finely Chopped
  • 1 Cup Baby Spinach Leaves Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese


  • Pre Heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and prepare muffin pan.
  • In a small bowl combine the eggs and milk and whisk with a fork until combined. Set aside
  • In a large bowl add in the bubbly sourdough starter, chopped produce and spices. Mix well.
  • Fold in the eggs until fully incorporated
  • Divide the batter between 12 muffins, filling them up about ¾ way to the top.
  • Top with cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked all the way through and sides are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes and remove from muffin pan.


~ If using discard instead, add in 1 teaspoon of baking soda. 
~ Use a batter bowl. A batter bowl is the best way to pour this mix into the muffin pan. The easy pour spout allows you control how much is being poured. And keeps things clean.
~ Use a 12-Muffin Non Stick Pan. If you do not have a non stick make sure you prepare the pan with cooking spray to ensure the egg bites can easily be removed.
~ Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
~ This recipe is so versatile and is a great one to get creative with. Shredded carrots or zucchini, chopped broccoli and onions could all be added in place of the peppers or mushrooms.
~ When using something like zucchini, that has a high water content, be sure to extract as much liquid out as you can before adding to the batter.
