We all have hectic mornings, right? Those rushed breakfast times leave little time for variety and it becomes all too easy to reach for a carb filled convenience food. I don’t want to feed “junk” to my kids, so I am always on the look out for a nutritious breakfast that is also quick and easy A Pinterest search returned several recipes for egg muffins. I decided to give them a try this morning. These little egg muffins turnd out to be easy, fairly fast to prepare, and all 3 of my boys ate them. So, I snapped a few pics on my tablet to share with you!
To make these little breakfast goodies, start with a greased or lined muffin tin. You can make as many or as few as you wish.
I put some bacon on the bottom of the muffin liner. You could also use any other breakfast meat your family enjoys,or leave it out altogether. That’s the beauty of these egg muffins, you choose what you like.
I added some salsa.
For the next bit I added some salsa to a few of the muffin cups. I left it out of the ones for my youngest kids.
Shredded cheddar cheese for the next layer.
I grated some fresh cheddar into each cup on top of the bacon & salsa. It is cheddar even though it isn’t orange, by the way. It’s organic and raw, so the orange coloring hasn’t been added to it.
Then add the eggs
I scrambled one egg for each muffin cup , poured it on top and then put the tin in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Just check to see if it is done with a toothpick or knife. If it comes out clean when you pull it out of the center of a muffin, they are ready to eat!
Egg Muffins ready to eat!
Then plate them and a complete breakfast is on the table! I apologize for the quality of this last pic. I didn’t have time for staging a nice photo because it was time to get the kids ready for school. However, the general idea is there!
A couple of tips for this recipe: don’t over cook. Dry egg muffins aren’t nearly as good as the correctly baked ones. Also, If you use paper liners, more egg gets left behind when you peel it. I found that a greased muffin tin yields a nicer shape and prevents you from peeling wrappers for little hands. After all, every minute is valuable in a busy morning, right?
How do you save time without skimping on a healthy breakfast in the morning?
