Our mornings have been really busy lately. Between getting the girls ready for the day, running, and whatever else has to be done, there’s not a lot of time for a decent breakfast. I don’t eat cereal. I sometimes have oatmeal made, but usually I end up cooking some sort of scramble with eggs and veggies. That’s where this idea for egg “muffins” came from.
These eggs bakes are tasty, super-simple to make, and keep well in the fridge. You can keep these in the fridge for a few days, so they are a good make-ahead dish for meal planners. Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds and they’re ready to go.
They’re grain free and pretty healthy. You could skip the cheese if you wanted to get even healthier. While we were testing this recipe we did have a version that included some quinoa too, but ultimately decided to leave it out. Add some cooked quinoa to the batter beforehand if you want to bulk these up a little more.
These little beauties are quite versatile too. You could go any different direction you wanted to with the flavorings. You could do turkey, ham, bacon for meat. Change up the veggies with broccoli, mushrooms, or spinach. Try some different cheeses, or no cheese at all. Lots of tasty potential combos here.
