I am always getting questions about what to make for breakfast. People are busy, tired, or rushing to get to work.
These egg muffins are my go-to when I am having a busy week for breakfast or want a quick healthy snack.
I always pair the egg muffins with a carbohydrate source to get some steady energy and good fiber as well.
What I love the most about these muffins is you can make them any way you like! I use spinach, if you don't like spinach add some mushrooms or any other vegetable! You can really make these taste whatever way you like!
First step: pick your favorite veggies and pick a meat! This could be bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini, etc. or bacon, turkey bacon, ham, turkey, etc. I also add a small pinch of cheese to each egg muffin. Chop them into smaller pieces.
Second step: Add the meat and veggies to a skillet and cook on medium heat until slightly browned.
Third step: Spoon the eggs into the greased muffin tin filling until the cups are about 1/2 full and top with the veggie/meat mixture until they are 3/4 full.
Fourth step: Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes and viola, a healthy and quick breakfast option!
