Muffin Tin Eggs – Breakfast On The Go
This past week I let my kids sleep an extra 20 minutes. This definitely helped them feel more rested…but definitely more rushed, too. This Mama bear was slightly frantic getting them to school on time. Breakfast in the car, it is!
I rank these Egg Muffins up there with my Sheet Pan Pancakes and quick and easy Banana Muffins for taste, ease, and portability – they all get eaten in the car a lot on the way to school. Bonus, these egg muffins are healthy and filling. They’re perfect for on the go during the week or early sports on the weekends. And so easily customizable, so everyone can get what they want.
Egg Muffin Recipe
There are many versions available for Breakfast Egg Muffins. Here’s what you’ll need for our keto-friendly recipe:
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- Eggs: Can’t make egg muffins without eggs! You’ll use the entire egg, not just the whites.
- Bacon: Crispy cooked bacon, diced small. If you’re in a pinch, you could use packaged real crumbled bacon.
- Broccoli: Cooked broccoli, finely chopped. If using frozen, make sure it’s completely thawed and any excess moisture is removed.
- Cheese: We love the flavor combination of Gruyere and Parmesan.
- Milk: Stick with whole milk or at least 2% milk for best results.
- Seasonings: Kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and ground mustard add perfect seasoning and round out the others flavors.
There are numerous ways to customize these egg muffins! Make them protein rich, packed with vegetables, super cheesy, or a combination of all three. You can mix and match, creating new flavors every time. Here are some ideas:
- Protein: cooked bacon, ham, sausage, or spicy chorizo.
- Vegetable: chopped broccoli, bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach, or sautéed onions.
- Cheesy goodness: Fontina, Gruyere, Parmesan, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, or Pepperjack.
