Savory Egg-in-Da-Middle Muffins

Easter brunch recommendation BELOW!!!

All the breakfast components you need in your life (minus a latte) are all wrapped up in this one lil’ muffin.  It’s a breakfast lover’s dream boat.  Or dream muffin.  Or, umm, it’s just really yummy.

When I went to San Francisco last summer I remember coming across the “rebel within muffin”, which was basically the same idea we have going here.  It was an egg served all cozy inside a muffin.  It’s genius.  I mean, don’t you want a muffin hugging around you? I think it sounds fab.

Speaking of cute and wonderful things like muffin hugs, look at these baby chick Easter eggs below.  SO CUTE.  When I was heading out of HEB I saw them and was like, “mmm yeah definitely gonna get those.”  I filled them with some Easter-tastic pastel M&M’s.  If I got to play the Easter Bunny I would put everything inside these eggs and the neon eggs above.

I actually thought these muffins were going to be difficult to make.  However, the only issue you may run into is when you crack the egg into the middle of the muffin batter the egg may kinda go everything.  AND THAT’S TOTALLY FINE.  You just scoop some more muffin batter on top of everything, add some cheese, bake ’em and they’ll be all rugged and handsome looking.

Fear not.  The muffins will prob all run together when baking and you’ll have to cut them apart using a knife, it’s all good tho.  See below.  So rustic and artisanal, amiright?

So I hope you have a whole spread planned for Easter.  Or you’re going somewhere where there is a whole spread planned.  And I hope these muffins are part of your Easter celebration<3

Savory Egg-in-Da-Middle Muffins

Yield: 9 muffins

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


dry ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar
3/4 cup chopped ham
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp onion powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

wet ingredients
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup greek yogurt
2 large eggs, lightly whisked

the eggs that go "in-da-middle" of the muffins
9 small to medium eggs


Preheat oven to 350ºF.  In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  Make a well in the center and add in wet ingredients.  Mix until the batter JUST comes together.  Don't be the person who over mixes their muffin batter.  Fill 9 muffin tins halfway full of batter.  Then use a spoon or your fingers to make a well in the center of the muffin tin.  Now crack an egg into each.  When you crack your egg into your batter well, the egg might kinda go everywhere.  This is why I recommend you buy small to medium sized eggs, but if you buy regular sized eggs and they go everywhere, it's really not a big deal.  Once you got your eggs cracked in the center of the muffins, top each egg with some more muffin batter.  It doesn't matter if it looks pretty or not.  It'll be fine.  Now top with a bit more grated cheese.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, until muffins are just turning golden brown on top.  Let cool 5 minutes in the muffin tin.  Pop out and serve hot & fresh.

I think the above is my dream table setting.  So boho-esque with the napkins + fairytale-esque with the flower (which also came from HEB) + fancy-esque with the gold flatware + Easter-esque with the lil’ chick nests.  Love it.


  1. The styling here is lovely. I like all easter-fied candies. 
    I need to get a big muffin pan like that one. Those muffins look very satisfying!

  2. Oh man, those look insanely good!! Love the insides of these muffins too!

  3. love the table setting! I’ve never heard of these egg muffins before 

  4. Oh my goodness…these are brilliant! They are definitely going on my Eastover table this weekend. Cannot wait!

  5. Now this would be extra super impressive if you found a way to make the yolk still runny inside the muffin, so it was extra surprising… but somehow I think that’s impossible.😉

  6. Hey Kylie, 

    I really appreciate your blogs and your message! As someone recovering from ED, I can’t seem to get past the thoughts. While I don’t binge, or restrict, I cant stop obsessing and over thinking about every meal I have.  It’s even having a big impact on my relationship.  She is so supportive but literally this is all I talk about, bi*ch about and I complain about what I “can’t eat” or my body and that’s a drag! 

    I got my hormones and food tested and was advised to eliminate X due to a sensitivity.  I want to preface I do not have celiacs.  Needless to say, I am obsessing since it sucks having to give up freedom and start thinking about food ALL the time again.  

    What are your thoughts on this?  I struggle to believe if I really need to eliminate all of this.  My gut is telling me one thing but I truly am struggling since I really have been all over the place with my mood, energy etc, so I want that to improve and I feel desperate.  After being told that this food could be contributing to that I have been trying to abstain.  

    But we know what happens when you have a history of food obsession, it just makes it worse.  Have you ever run into this in your practice? the “false” food sensitivities, or even, having clients that need to eliminate X and are actually able to recover and not obsess about this? 

    Thank you so much in advance!

    • Hi Nicole,

      Not sure who did your hormone and food sensitivity testing, but I hope you told them about how much eliminating foods affects your mental wellbeing. A lot of these doctors can talk about how they are holistic doctors, yet don’t realize how small one’s world can get when they become obsessed with eliminating food. In these situations those MDs do more harm than good. I imagine if they are aware of your history with an ED and understood EDs that they would recommend treating the ED first and then down the road addressing foods that don’t make you feel excellent. Sounds like working with an ED therapist or ED dietitian could be very beneficial to you!

  7. I love this!! I recently (like 2 weeks ago) went to Craftsman and Wolves in SF where i had the rebel within and i was wondering how they made that work

  8. awwh those lil chickies are so cute!

  9. before i even opened your post i was like “omg the muffins from craftsman and wolves!!!” my best friend used to be a baker there and everything was SO GOOD.

    ok anyway, these muffins also look absolutely amazing and i need to try them! i would be pretty impressed with myself if i could actually pull them off…haha thanks for sharing your recipe :)
