Breakfast Egg Muffins

Eggs are one of the most versatile breakfast foods around, but few of us can spare the time to cook them in the morning. These egg muffins are designed to be cooked ahead of time, then grabbed on the go. Egg muffins will keep one week in the refrigerator. Microwave 30 seconds to reheat. Just add a variety of different goodies to your tin - maybe 6 with bacon, onion & cheese and 6 with spinach, mushrooms and ham. You can't mess this up! In the morning, just grab a couple from your Ziploc and nuke them, and away you go! No unhealthy trip to Mickey D's.

Such an easy egg breakfast! They're impressive enough to serve at a brunch but easy enough to have on hand for a quick and easy breakfast. Kiddos will be excited to snack on these as they head to the bus. I tried them with Italian sausage, but can't wait to try other fillings. A great on-the-go breakfast!

How to Make Breakfast Egg Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink.
  2. In microwave safe bowl, microwave broccoli until thawed about approximately 4 minutes and drain.
  3. Place muffin cups in muffin tin. In large bowl combine sausage, broccoli and cheese. Spoon mixture into cups about 2/3 of the way, leaving room to add egg mixture.
