Breakfast egg muffins will help kickstart your morning!

Do you need something fast and easy for breakfast, that isn’t junk, and will give you a healthy start to your day?  

 

These breakfast egg muffins are super delicious, protein packed, and made with ingredients that are good for our bodies!

Breakfast egg muffins are perfect for busy mornings, weekend brunch, or even holidays….they come together quickly and are sure to be a hit!

Breakfast is the most important meal to start your day, but it is usually the most neglected.  We need a breakfast that is fast, delicious, and filling. 

Anyone else struggle with breakfast in the morning? Seriously, the last thing that I want to do is spend a lot of time cooking right when I wake up.

I can make a batch or two of these on Sunday and they last us the entire week!

On Sundays I usually clean and cut up all the vegetables for the refrigerator for the week.  So, I make these breakfast egg muffins while I’m already cutting up vegetables anyway. 

It makes prep time fast and simple.

Once you try them, there’s no way to NOT love them. They’re quick, easy, and so flavorful.

These Breakfast Egg Muffins are loaded with all your breakfast favorites and will ensure you start your busy day on a healthy note! 

I use a non-stick muffin tin.  No need to ever spray!  This is one of my best buys for cooking any kind of muffins.  (Like this one)

Personalize your ingredients

The great thing about these muffins are that you can personalize them to your taste . . . don’t like meat? Leave the meat out!

Don’t care for spinach? No need to add it! Love mushrooms? Then by all means, add as much as you like!

I usually add ham also, but didn’t have any while I was making this.  See what I mean about ingredients?

Use whatever you have or change the ingredients different weeks to keep from getting bored. Last week I made breakfast egg muffins with green peppers, mushrooms and uncured bacon.

Add egg mixture to the muffin tins.  You can also add all your ingredients to the egg mixture and then pour in the muffin tins.

But, I have found it is better to add the ingredients to the muffin tins and THEN pour the egg mixture.  Otherwise, the heavier vegetables fall to the bottom of the egg mixture bowl and do not get evenly divided into the muffin tins.

Breakfast egg muffins are the perfect grab & go breakfast….and a breakfast I feel GREAT about feeding my kids.

Did I mention they are also FAST to make?
