How to Make Breakfast Egg Muffins
Making egg muffins is really simple. Gather your favorite veggies, leftover meat and combine it with some yummy eggs for a delicious breakfast. The combinations are endless!
Make sure to make a double or triple batch depending on how many people you have in your family. In ours, we usually eat 3-4 muffins per adult per serving. My toddler might eat 2 muffins.
You can also adapt this recipe for your particular lifestyle:
- Low fat or low calories – skip the cheese, use only egg whites and lean meat (turkey, chicken).
- Keto – use whole free range eggs, bacon, spinach and cheese. Skip the veggies with more carbs like onions.
- Meat Free Days – fill it up with yummy veggies and skip the meat.
And if you are like me and have no time or inclination to scrub baking sheets clean of eggs – use parchment paper cups in the muffin tins. Super easy clean up!
