    A few weeks ago on Food Network they featured a diner that has muffins with a hard boiled egg baked inside. I wasn't really paying attention and don't know what show it was, where the diner was or anything. I have been intrigued ever since but can't find a recipe for anything like that. I have search FN website, googled, searched here etc. Has anyone else ever seen a recipe for something like this? thanks!

    Oh I hope someone knows about this! I really want an Anglo version for packing picnics/breakfasts on the go.
    I used to get "moon cakes" from a friend in PNW for Chinese New Year. They had duck egg baked in them.

    I had one of these also. It was baked in a stuffing type muffin. The lady that fixed them said they made the muffin and before she baked them indented the muffin and put raw egg in it. Haven't tried it but would like to.

    Are you talking about an "egg in the nest" type recipe? Where the egg (in shell) is cooked with the muffin?

    Hi! To clarify - this was a peeled and previously hard boiled egg baked inside a corn-type muffin. I actually traced down the cafe and talked to the person who cam up with the recipe. She was very protective of her technique and recipe but I did manage to try making it with good results.

    I used large muffin tins and eggs boiled within a minute or two of hard. I partially filled the tin, added the peeled egg, then covered with the rest of the batter.

    They were yummy but HUGE and the cornbread needs to be very flavorful or it would be somewhat blah. (As mine was). The cafe uses a batter that has cheese and chilis in it. Thanks for everyone's recent interest!

    Wow! Fun to get these responses... icon_redface.gif I didn't write down the recipe! I will share what I did though and hopefully you can recreate it. If anyone really needs the recipe I will get in the kitchen and document.

    Boil 6 eggs until just shy of being done. Peel when cool enough to handle but don't cool them all the way.

    Make a recipe of cornbread batter. I used a very basic recipe which I think was an error. Jazz it up with cheese, peppers, whatever floats your boat.

    Using a large muffin tin with 6 cups fill each 1/2 way with batter. Nestle a peeled whole egg into the batter but keep in the middle of the cup (I think I lay mine on their sides). Cover each egg with the rest of the batter. Bake as directed for the muffin recipe but keep an eye on it. I don't know what kindof guidelines to give you for time . They are big but remember the entire center is a cooked egg so it doesn't need to cook in the middle.

    Have fun and let me know how they turn out!

    icon_smile.gif I saw another cooking show with 2 girls in San Francisco eating these breakfast muffins.

    Just to try out the idea I'm going to use a corn bread mix (don't shoot me, I'm just learning to cook from being a truck driver 15 yrs). Anyway I saw they boiled an egg soft (solid white soft yolk), then a bit of muffin batter in the cups, then the egg and more batter, then they baked it.

    to me this is an Egg __ Muffin for sure!!

    This the way I tried it.

    To soft boil put salt and olive in the water bring to boil THEN spoonothe eggs into water. 5 minutes pull them out. The oil makes the shell slide off, without oil the inside skin takes chunks of white.

    Cornbread batter tastes best using buttermilk in the batter Hands Down, bake in muffin tin using cupcake paper cups at 400 for 15 min, clean toothpick.

    Cornbread definately needs extra flavor and lends itself to to anything of imagination

    I think any of the following corn muffin recipes would work wonderfully with an egg in the middle. They would make a great "take along" breakfast muffin. icon_biggrin.gif

    Onion and Red Pepper Corn Muffins
    Bacon Corn muffin recipes (or sub browned breakfast sausage for the bacon)
