Nestled Egg Muffins Recipe

My kids think these muffins are great because the eggs "magically" cook in the shell as they rest on top of the muffin. For extra fun, we dye the eggs before baking.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:18 servings


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 18 whole uncooked eggs, rinsed


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside. Combine eggs, milk raisins and oil; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill 18 greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full. Place one whole egg (with shell) on top of each muffin. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes. Cut an egg open to test for desired doneness. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"It looks lovely and the muffin part sounds delicious but I'm concerned about how to get the eggshells separated from the muffin to eat both egg and muffin!!"

"I wondered if the eggs should not be pierced first so they don't burst?

"This worked out perfect for a mother daughter theme ("As a Hen Gathereth Her Chicks")we're having in May. I had to try them to make sure they'll work. I used brown eggs and just baked them in a greased muffin pan. Placed in a basket on each table, they're going to look adorable...and taste just as good! Thanks."
