Do you eat breakfast every single day? Do you find it difficult to make healthy breakfast choices when you’re on the go? Breakfast is often the most challenging meal of the day for me. Because I prefer to start working almost as soon as I wake up in the morning, I don’t like spending a lot of time preparing breakfast. Instead, I choose options that are quick, easy and can be prepped in advance. Southwest Egg Muffin Cups are one of my go-to breakfast options because they are packed with fresh vegetables and flavor. Best of all, you can make a batch of these baked eggs in muffin tin at the beginning of the week and enjoy them throughout the week.
This baked egg cup recipe is really easy! Fill a muffin pan with some of your favorite veggies. Pour the eggs in the muffin pan with a few additional ingredients, bake and enjoy.
Egg muffin recipe
Divide chopped greens, peppers and onions between 12 muffin cups coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk together eggs, milk, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full with the egg mixture, pouring over the vegetables. Sprinkle cheese over the top of each muffin cup.
Bake the egg muffin cups for 20 to 25 minutes or until the eggs are set and puffed up. Remove them from the oven and let cool slightly.
Run a knife along the side of each cup, remove and enjoy.
Baked eggs in muffin tin are like mini frittatas. Using a muffin tin for baking creates small little snack size servings for breakfast, lunch or snack.
How to store breakfast egg muffins
Store in the refrigerator for up to three days. Let the egg muffin cups cool completely then place them in an airtight container. Plastic wrap or bags work well too.
Freeze egg cups
To freeze egg muffins, let them cool completely then individually wrap them in plastic wrap. Place them in a ziploc and freeze for up to three months.
Reheat egg muffins
To reheat egg muff cups, take them out of the container and microwave them for about 20 seconds or so. If they are frozen, they will need to be heated for about 60 to 90 seconds. You can also reheat them in a toasted oven or oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
