Egg Muffins are a Simple and Healthy Breakfast
You can fill your egg muffins with whatever you like but we recommend lots of veggies! Spinach is great for these along with peppers, mushrooms, and even broccoli! Fill these up with veggies for a fiber and vitamin-packed breakfast.
The best part about these egg muffins is that you can grab a couple on your way out to work or school. They’ll keep in the fridge for about 5 days, so you can make these over the weekend and have them ready throughout the week.
For your protein, you can add in ham, turkey, sausage, chicken, bacon – whatever you like! Try to go for nitrate-free options for an even healthier breakfast

Prepare 12 cup muffin tin by spraying with cooking spray or rubbing with oil or butter (or use silicone baking cups, which do not require greasing).
Pour whisked eggs into muffin cups. These can be made as large as 1 egg per cup, or you can use as few as 7 eggs for 12 cups, if you want to make smaller portions.
Once egg has been portioned out, fill with your favorite veggies and other fillings.This is a great way to get kids involved and also customize to different preferences.
Season all of the cups with a little salt and pepper, and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
They are done when they have puffed up and are no longer runny in the center.
They will deflate a little as they cool. These can be stored in the refrigerator, and reheated in the microwave for about 30 seconds, for a quick on-the- go breakfast. They will keep for about 5 days.
