Breakfast Egg Muffins
My absolute favorite meal of the day is breakfast/brunch. There are many ways to mix up your options in the morning. This is something you can make that is quick, easy, and will last a few days (depending on how many you are feeding 🙂 ). Here’s what you’ll need:
8 Eggs (you could do 10 egg whites as a healthier alternative)
½ cup of shredded cheese (I use a ¼ cup of feta and a ¼ cup of cheddar)
6 turkey bacon strips (or any other kind of meat)
Feel free to add about ½ a cup of some chopped peppers, onions, or tomatoes or other veggies you may like as well.
½ cup of skim milk (or whatever milk you have at home)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of pepper (I really like pepper so alter this to your liking)
Grease the muffin pan WELL (they will stick if you don’t grease it enough) and preheat the oven at 350 degree. In a big bowl, beat the eggs well then add in the milk, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture into the muffin pan equally- it should make 12 muffins exactly.
Now, dice up the turkey bacon (and veggies if you have them). Evenly distribute them to the muffin pan with the mixture in them. Then, take your cheeses and put on top of the muffin mixture you have so far. I did half of the muffins with feta and half with cheddar. Don’t mix up the egg, meat/veggies, and cheese- let it layer.
Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Watch the time because it will change based on the oven. When the muffins are hard at the top, push on them with a fork, they are done.
They will be delicious and just as good the next day or later for a quick snack. This is a GREAT breakfast to make on Sunday night and have ready for breakfast for the rest of the week.
