Easy Egg Muffin {healthy to go breakfast}

egg muffins

I am always looking for easy to go healthy breakfast meals for our family. Our mornings are usually pretty rushed and sometimes downright chaotic. My goal is to maintain some sanity in the morning so our boys leave our home ready to face the world not starting off their day upset or frustrated. Though the reality is  sometimes we have those days when they don’t want to wear something in particular or they woke up on the wrong side of the bed and they have a big tantrum which makes them late to breakfast and then rushing out the door to make it to school on time… well if you have kids you may be very familiar with what I am talking about.

My family devoured these Healthy Egg Muffins. I made a dozen and between 3 growing boys and my husband I only got to eat one. Next time I will double the recipe.  I say these are healthy because you have veggies, protein and dairy all in one bite! You can substitute the eggs for healthier options like egg beaters or just egg whites or organic eggs. I am amazed at all the options we have out there for eggs. This is great for anyone on a protein diet in that case use all 12 eggs, he, he, he.

      Hi Linda, good question. I couldn’t remember the name of those eggs but I just did and updated the post. It’s egg beaters, organic eggs, egg whites only…. I have never made them with these so do it at your own risk, lol. Let me know if you do egg whites. I am curious how they will turn out.

        Thx. I would not omit the yolks. That is where the nutrition is. That why we are so happy to find a recipe like this. A great way to pack in more eggs on the way to school in the morning! Thanks. You should check out the new info about cholesterol. Dr. Oz talked about it on his show. “The Cholesterol Myth” by two drs that I can’t recall now.

    Linda, I wouldn’t either. Good to know about the cholesterol myth. I will have to read up on that. Thx and enjoy!

      Kim, Yes, most definitely. Just refridgerate and then pull out and microwave it.

    I make a ton of these on the weekend and freeze them. Yes I said it freeze them. They are just like a crustless quiche so why not freeze them. I put them into a ziplock bag in the freezer.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
