    • ½ tbsp chilli flakes
    • 1 tbsp parsley chopped

    • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Grease a 12-hole cupcake tin with the butter. Prepare the fillings as described above.

    Five benefits of eggs:
    1. Protein – They are high in protein; two eggs provide an average man with half of his daily protein requirement. It is the best form of protein important for muscle growth and maintenance.
    2. Calories - An average egg contains about 70kcal and 6g protein making it a great choice for those watching their weight.
    3. Vitamin D – We don’t get enough Vitamin D in Ireland - 2 eggs give you a third of what you need in a day.
    4. Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for nerve function. Two eggs provide you with all you need in a day
    5. Minerals - Two eggs provide as much iron as 100g of spinach. They also contain over a third of your daily requirement of selenium and iodine needed for healthy thyroid function and immunity.
