A hearty breakfast

We make some delicious Breakfast Egg Muffins with Little Kitchen Magicians. Makes 12 portions.

Little Kitchen Magicians and St Ewe Free Range Eggs have teamed up to celebrate British Egg Week (week commencing 9th October). The theme is ‘Britain’s Favourite Breakfast’ this year. They want to get us thinking about the all-important meal, breakfast, and also how fabulous eggs are for our health and wellbeing. Did you know that eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration levels and it can also make us happier, improving mood and lowering stress levels?

“DHA Omega 3 contributes to brain health and function…”

St Ewe Free Range ‘Boost the Roost’ eggs go one step further. They are naturally enriched with Selenium and DHA Omega 3. Selenium boosts your immune systems as well as strengthening cell walls. DHA Omega 3 contributes to brain health and function and helps brain, eye and nerve development, visual health and function and eye health.
