Easy Breakfast Egg Muffins

Breakfast Egg Muffins

This easy breakfast egg muffins recipe is an easy grab-and-go option for busy mornings. We eat eggs pretty much every morning because they are a good source of protein and a great way to start the day. There are endless breakfast ideas with eggs. I love this fun breakfast recipe because you can whip it up in minutes, and customize it with whatever vegetables you like or have on hand.

Healthy Egg Muffins for Work or School

These healthy, portable breakfast egg muffins are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. I love that I can make a batch of 12 egg muffins for just 30 minutes and I have enough muffins to grab one in the mornings during the week and eat it on the way to work. You can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week and then just reheat them.

MY LATEST RECIPES

That’s the best kind of breakfast! Or snack. And it’s also perfect for school lunches. These breakfast egg muffins are naturally gluten-free and Paleo friendly.

They are super easy to make. It took me about 10 minutes to prep and chop the veggies, then I tossed everything and transferred it to the muffin cups, and poured the egg mixture and topped with cheese. I love that this recipe is very customizable and you can use almost any veggies you have in your fridge. You can also add some cooked bacon, ham or leftover chicken. You are only limited by your imagination!

How Do You Store Breakfast Egg Muffins

You can store any leftover breakfast egg muffins in an airtight container in the fridge. These egg muffins are designed to be cooked ahead of time, stored on the refrigerator, and then grabbed on the go during the week.

How Long Do You Keep Egg Muffins

These easy breakfast egg muffins will keep one week in the refrigerator. Just reheat them in your mini convection oven or the microwave for 30 seconds. Eggs are excellent for breakfast but not many people can afford the time to cook them in the morning before they rush out the door for work. That’s why I love to cook these healthy breakfast egg muffins on Sunday and have enough for breakfast for the whole week. These are also great if you are trying to eat healthy, and want to avoid the drive-through in the morning.

What you need

1 red bell peppers, finely diced

1 cup finely chopped broccoli

1 medium carrot, peeled and shredded

1/2 medium yellow onion

8 large eggs

salt and pepper, to taste

about 3/4 cup shredded cheese (optional – omit for Paleo)

6 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a regular muffin pan with silicon muffin molds.

In a large bowl add carrots, peppers, shredded carrots, onion (or mix and match with your favorite vegetables) and toss to combine. If you want you can also add some crumbled cooked bacon.

Fill each muffin cavity with the vegetable mixture so that each is filled to about 3/4 full.

In a medium mixing bowl, crack the eggs and lightly beat with a whisk (don’t overbeat them if you want to have fluffy egg muffins). Add the salt and pepper, to taste, and whisk to combine.

Pour about 3 tablespoons of egg into each muffin cup, equally distributing among the cups. Be careful not to overfill each muffin cup.

Top each cup with about 1 Tbsp shredded cheese each.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until muffins are set, cooked through, and are lightly golden. They will puff in the oven but sink upon cooling. Allow muffins to cool in pan on top of a wire rack for about 5 minutes before removing.

Muffins will keep airtight for up to 1 week in the fridge; reheat gently in the microwave or serve cold.

    What a great way to pack eggs and vegetables (cheese too) into a handheld breakfast treat. Great for kids of any age – and I include myself in that group.

  • Sandi Gaertner (@sandigtweets)

    This is the perfect breakfast for busy school mornings. My kids are at that age where waking them up is almost impossible in the morning. This grab and go idea will be perfect for them.

  • Piyali Mutha

    These supremely delicious looking breakfast muffins are a perfect way to pack all the goodness in a muffin and get as imaginative as possible. A wonderful kick start to a nourished day. Mission achieved. Must try.

  • Roy

    I actually have a similar recipe like this so I know just how delicious these lil babies are!
    thanks for the lovely post 🙂

  • Chris @ SimpleFood365

    We keep talking about making these and freezing them for use at breakfast through the week. Yours look yummy!

  • Laura

    Ooh those are baked to perfection–they look so good. I have made them with ham–but bacon sounds so much better!

  • Anne Murphy

    I was just suggesting something of the sort to a friend who started a new job and has to get out quickly in the morning. They are so handy!

  • Thalia @ butter and brioche

    What a delicious way to begin a morning! I love little savoury breakfast treats like these muffins and arguably think they would make the best portable snacks too.

  • Sabrina

    What a fun and easy to eat dish! I love that you can add in all those veggies!

  • Michelle @ The Complete Savorist

    Making a batch of these and then having them for breakfast on the run would help me get a good breakfast and not take much time. Perfect.

  • kaitie

    This is awesome, and with school coming back, and two hungry little girls to feed I can make a batch of these and use them for two breakfasts! Perfect!

  • Diane

    These are a great way to have a breakfast on the go! They look so pretty too. I can see these in a basket for a buffet brunch, or on the trail in a back pack. Great idea!
