Make Ahead Egg Muffins

Egg Muffins are a delicious and tasty breakfast, naturally low carb and easy to make ahead of time. We prepare these little egg cups with our favorite veggies or sausage or bacon (often using leftovers).

Egg Muffins!

We love having breakfast ready to go like our favorite Mango Berry Overnight Oats or Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. And these Egg Muffins are definitely one of my favorite breakfast items!

I love to make them up on the weekend and then enjoy them as a quick breakfast throughout the week. Not only are they great for breakfast, these egg muffins make a perfect lunch tucked between a couple of pieces of toast.

Once baked, we store them in the fridge for and in the morning, we just microwave until warm and enjoy!

How To Make Egg Muffins

These little egg cups are very simple to make. You’ll want to grease your muffin tin well (or they’ll stick) and add in your favorite toppings and a bit of cheese.

Next combine eggs and egg whites. I use store bought egg whites in a container, I like how it makes the texture a little bit lighter.

If you’d prefer to use whole eggs, replace the 1 cup of egg whites in the recipe and use 12 eggs total. (1 egg per cup).

A Make-Ahead Breakfast Made Your Way

While these egg muffins contain turkey sausage and cheese, you can use any combination of ingredients you like!  A few of my favorites include ham & broccoli or sausage, peppers and mushrooms.

I make this version most often and our other favorite is spinach egg muffins with a bit of feta added in!

If you prefer a veggie egg muffin, skip the meat and add extra cooked veggies. We often use leftovers from the weekend to put in them and change up the cheeses depending on what we have on hand.

How Do you Store Egg Muffins?

These egg muffins will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days (or can be frozen) for a quick and easy make-ahead breakfast on the go! To reheat egg muffins, simply microwave them for about 20 seconds or so.

As for these delicious egg cups, I prefer to eat them as is and my husband loves to put them on English muffins to make a sandwich.  Either way, these little egg muffins are the perfect way to start your day!
