Egg Muffins

on September 5, 2017

The recipe for today is for Egg Muffins. They’re kind of like a cross between an omelette, a frittata, and a muffin, and ooooh, they’re so tasty. I make these for my mom to keep in her freezer, because they are easy to reheat and they’re great for breakfast, lunch OR dinner. It’s easy to make these versatile – you can add any leftovers (like the Garbage Can Frittata) to make these very delicious eggs. You can find recipes for these all over, and everyone seems to have their own way of making these with all of their favorite things. I like to add vegetables, cheese, and some kind of meat . These are so easy to do, and so very good.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Egg Muffins

Mix together:

8-10 eggs

1/4 cup milk

Put in bottom of greased muffin tin cups:

6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped (you can use any kind of chopped meat you like, or leave it out)

1/2 of a red pepper, chopped

1/2 of a green pepper, chopped

3 green onions, chopped

1-1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used cheddar)

salt and pepper to taste

Pour egg mixture evenly over top of meat, vegetables, and cheese until the muffin cups are 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Wrap and freeze, or enjoy right away.

First I put bacon in the bottom of the muffin tin cups, but you can use ham, chicken, sausage, anything that you like. Next – in go the vegetables – I used peppers and onions, and I put them in raw. A frozen mixed vegetable also works well, but thaw or cook them first. I have also seen these made with hash browns or tater tots added.

You can use any kind of cheese, but for this batch, I used shredded cheddar.

I had some extra egg yolks left from making Baked Alaska a couple of weeks ago, so I added them to the eggs I used here.

They bake up beautifully and they’re ready for the freezer. Wrap them well and they should last a few weeks – if you hide them in the freezer.

I love having these ready for breakfast, but they’re also good for lunch or dinner – just add a nice, green salad and maybe some crusty bread. They’re easy to make, they’re delicious, and they’re one of my favorites! Give these Egg Muffins a try to have your breakfast made and ready to go!
