I love these breakfast muffins, they’re so fresh and tasty. They’re also really easy to make and you can even meal prep the salsa the night before so that everything comes together super quickly in the morning.

You could definitely make this breakfast as a Christmas Eve morning treat or on Boxing Day as a bit of a light relief after all the heavy eating the day before.

But really this breakfast is perfect all year round.

How to make halloumi egg muffins with avocado salsa

Make the salsa: Toss together the cherry tomatoes, chilli sauce, lime juice, coriander and avocado. Season well and set aside until ready to use.

Fry the halloumi: Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan and fry the halloumi slices until browned on both sides. While the halloumi is frying toast the muffins.

Finish the muffins: Split the halloumi slices between the muffin halves and top with the salsa. Fry the eggs to your liking and place on top of the salsa.
