How To Make The Egg Broccoli And Ham Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Whether you’re on a low carb or keto diet, or you just need something quick while running out the door egg muffins are a very healthy, easy, on-the-go breakfast, and perfect for meal prepping.

Egg muffins are like mini frittatas that give you the capability of customizing them any way you like. You can load them with any of your breakfast favorites, like bacon, milk, eggs, cheese, spinach, peppers, onion, mushrooms, the list goes on and on. These muffins are simple, savory, and delicious. They come together quickly and just baked within up to 15 minutes, it’s a no-brainer if you’re living a busy lifestyle.

If you make a big batch of them, they can last you almost the entire week for yourself or a simple go-to meal for the kids before they run off to school. I have never been a good morning person. So, when I first realized that this was a thing, I was astonished.

Just simply meal prep them on a Sunday or whatever day you have off and they’re good in the fridge for about 4 days. Just bake them according to the recipe instructions, and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, then reheat them in the microwave or oven just before serving. As I said, they’re a perfect grab ‘n go breakfast for a busy morning.

You can freeze these breakfast egg muffins as well if you want to consider making a lot of them. Let the egg muffins cool completely, then wrap them individually in plastic wrap and pop them in a freezer-safe ziplock bag. They will last for up to about 2 months. To reheat, unwrap from the plastic wrap and fold them in a damp paper towel. Heat in the microwave in 20-second increments until completely warmed through.

If you’re on a diet that consists of just egg white, these are still possible. To make this recipe with egg whites only, you will need to use two egg whites for every whole egg this recipe calls for. Eliminating the yolk will change the flavor a bit, and you may need to increase the amount of salt and pepper you use.
