This recipe for breakfast egg muffins is an easy grab and go option for busy mornings. Egg muffins are loaded with bacon, cheddar cheese and spinach, and are packed with plenty of protein!
Eggs. It’s what’s for breakfast pretty much every single day at my house. I eat eggs every morning because I love to start my day with some protein, and my kids eat scrambled eggs most days too along with cereal or yogurt. After making the same scrambled eggs for the 10th day in a row, I decided we needed to shake up our breakfast routine and try something new. I whipped up these fun breakfast egg muffins in just minutes for a fresh take on a classic recipe.
How do you make egg muffins?
This is a simple recipe made with beaten eggs, spinach, bacon, cheese and seasonings. Everything gets mixed together and then is poured into muffin tins and baked until set. You can eat you egg muffins as-is, or add a topping of diced tomatoes and herbs.
Tips for egg muffins
- This recipe can easily be doubled to feed a larger crowd.
- To save on prep time, buy pre-cooked bacon and pre-shredded cheese.
- I like to use fresh spinach that’s been cooked and then squeezed to remove excess water. You can also use thawed frozen spinach, just be sure to get all that water out!
- Be sure to grease your muffin tins well so that your egg muffins don’t stick to the pan. Alternatively, you can use silicon cupcake liners in your pan.
- Looking to save a few calories? Use 4 egg whites and 3 whole eggs rather than 6 whole eggs.
How do you reheat egg muffins?
The easiest way to reheat egg muffins is in the microwave. I cook each egg muffin for approximately 30 seconds or until just heated through. Be sure not to over cook them or your eggs might become tough.
How long can I keep egg muffins in the fridge?
These egg muffins keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. If you have any left over, you can always freeze them for another day, then reheat in the microwave when you’re ready to enjoy them. Egg muffins will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Egg Muffin Variations
There are SO many different ways to customize your egg muffins! I like to choose one protein, one cheese and one veggie to mix and match and create new flavors.
- Protein: Ham, breakfast sausage, chicken, chorizo, ground beef
- Cheese: Monterey Jack, swiss, mozzarella, fontina, pepper jack, feta
- Veggies: Mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, kale, broccoli, artichokes
I make breakfast muffins almost every week; they’re the perfect way to get your day off to a healthier start and the protein will help keep you full all morning long!
