The main star of this quick and healthy breakfast is the egg. Even though it is called an egg muffin, it only refers to its shape, there is no bread in it.
I like the egg. Those of us that remember all of the excitement around the egg in the 90's might have a bit of a stigma about them. Are they ok to eat? Is it ok to eat the yolks? Will they raise my cholesterol? The answers are yes, yes, and probably not. Egg yolk does have cholesterol in it. What we have found out is that dietary cholesterol intake doesn't necessarily correlate with blood cholesterol levels. Egg yolk also has saturated fat in it, and saturated fat is fine in moderation, but some types may contribute to your cholesterol levels if not consumed in moderation - so it depends on the rest of your diet.
