Eggs are my go to breakfast, I eat them almost every day.  They’re tasty, healthy and easy to make. Enjoying them baked in muffin tins is a great way to prepare breakfast ahead of time.

Not only are they great for breakfast, they make the perfect lunch or even afternoon snack!

Do you know what else these egg muffins are good for?  They’re perfect for busy moms…  and new moms!

This week we are celebrating my dear friend Lindsay who blogs over at Life, Love and Sugar (and makes the most gorgeous desserts) as she is about to have twins!

We are SO excited for the arrival of her new little guys that we are throwing her a virtual baby shower!

Raw egg and veggies in muffin tins for Veggie Egg Muffins-

Life as a new mom is busy… not only is your body physically exhausted, it seems you’re always on the go and I’d imagine more so with two babies!

Between exhaustion and sneaking in moments to snuggle the new little bundles, smelling the sweet baby scent and watching those little faces as they sleep (or we hope they sleep), as a new mom it’s easy to forget to fuel ourselves.

These scrambled egg muffins are the perfect addition to a new mother’s fridge, they keep for days and heat perfectly in seconds.

They’re great for breakfast or squished between an english muffin for a simple dinner along with a side salad when cooking just isn’t happening…  and trust me with a new baby (or two) in tow, there are nights when cooking just is not going to happen!

Most of all, these veggie egg muffins are delicious and nutritious.  Loaded with protein and veggies, they’ll keep you going for hours!

Since this is a baby shower, and we are food bloggers after all, you know that there has to be an amazing lineup of food…  please make sure you stop by and check out all of the delicious goodies below to help us celebrate Lindsay’s new little babies!

See what everyone’s bringing to the party!

And for this virtual party, I’m bringing my favorite egg muffins!

Perfect to put out in mini muffin tins for snacks for a baby shower and of course perfect to fill the fridge of any new mama!

I add in my favorite veggies, ensuring to cook them to tender crisp and (and allowing them to release any juices before adding to the egg mixture).

Cheddar and a bit of parmesan are my favorite additions but as you’d suspect, pretty much any cheese will work perfectly in these!

These are a great way to serve eggs to a crowd alongside Copy Cat Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole or even with our favorite  Roasted Potatoes.

How long can you keep egg muffins?

Veggie egg muffins will last about 5 days in the refrigerator, a little less if you decide to add sausage.

If you plan on keeping them longer, these can be easily frozen and reheated from frozen!

I like to make a big batch of egg muffins and freeze them for easy breakfasts while I am busy getting out the door!

How do you reheat egg muffins?

To reheat egg muffins, I simply pop them into the microwave, but you could also reheat them in the oven if you don’t have a microwave handy.

In the microwave, place them on a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds(refrigerated), or for 45-60 seconds from frozen. They may release a little bit of liquid, this is normal.

Microwaves can vary so you may need to adjust the cooking time slightly.

  1. I LOVE this recipe. Because it’s so simple and cute. Everyone likes the individual egg cups to just put on their plate and go! And, they totally love all the veggies.

    And…for the very first time, I am going to make them ahead and reheat at my church in the big warming oven. Hope they’re as great as fresh out of the oven. Any advice?5 stars

    1. These are great as a make-ahead breakfast! I often use pop them into the microwave for 30-60 seconds so if warming in the oven they should only need a few minutes.

  2. Yum! I like that you can make this recipe with whatever veggies you have. I made it with red and orange peppers. It turned out delicious, nice and fluffy, but despite generous greasing the egg still stuck firmly to the pan. 5 stars

    1. Mine stuck too, in spite of greasing my nonstick muffin pans well. So I ordered some silicon muffin cups that fit perfectly in my muffin pans. I didn’t spray them or grease them, and the egg muffins popped right out. I love this recipe!

  3. I used mushrooms , peppers , zucchini,and onions. Cooked them good in fry pan and then let cool. Very little moisture left. They were delicious and perfect. My new go to recipe.5 stars

  4. Can I put potatoes in these? And if so, can I freeze? Thanks for the recipe Holly, every one I come across is a keeper!

  5. I just made my second big batch of these and appreciate the recipe so much. Thank you! They are super yummy, easy to make, and don’t take up much room in my freezer. (I’ve had a bottle of dried mustard powder in my spice drawer for longer than I can remember. It didn’t have an expiration date on it so I was glad to use it. And that little bit of heat really adds a lot of flavor!)5 stars

  6. I loosely followed this recipe and my egg muffins turned out great. I added mushrooms but did not cook them beforehand, so I was worried they would add moisture to the muffins, but they didn’t. I generously sprayed the muffin pan with Pam and my eggs didn’t stick at all. 12 eggs was the perfect amount for 12 muffins.5 stars

      1. You would need to reduce the cook time, likely around 10 minutes. Check them a little before so they don’t overcook.

  7. You need to really, really grease up the muffin cups. Mine taste good but about 1/4 of them are stuck to the pan, and they look like crap.3 stars

    1. Oh no, that’s too bad Christina. You definitely need to spray the muffin tins very well to ensure they come out nicely!

  8. These are a great go to recipe. Definitely need to cook any veggies high in water first and I like to add chunks of laughing cow cheese to mine instead of shredded. Thank you for the recipe!5 stars

  9. Making these for Bosses’ Day tomorrow! They still have just over 5 minutes left and they look marvelous! They smell great. I put sausage in them, too to give flavor. Enough left for my breakfast in the morning before I leave for work. I whipped the eggs for a bit hoping that would puff them up. So far, it’s working.5 stars

  10. My muffins came out with the bottoms weirdly shaped and greyish… what am I doing wrong? I’m in New Zealand and so the heat is Celcius, although I doubt that is the problem, ha.

    1. Generally the grey color would come from being overcooked or a temp too high (the same way you get a grey ring around the yolk if hardboiled eggs cook too long). It could be related to the add-ins (not sure if you swapped them up at all).

      As for the shape, did you add anything watery such as mushrooms or zucchini.

      1. Hi, popping in to mention I had the same problem, I did use mushrooms, is there a trick to it? I thought maybe it was because I used a little bit of butter to saute and soften the veggies – it all seemed a bit shiny on top. :)

      2. You may want to precook your mushrooms so that they contain less water before adding them in. That can make a difference. Hope it helps Dee!
