Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins
These Breakfast Egg Muffins are fantastic for a variety of reasons. They’re a quick, keto-friendly, and kid-friendly breakfast that just takes a few minutes to prepare.
They resemble fluffy tiny little egg casseroles that may be customized to suit everyone’s preferences. Do you have a finicky eater or an allergy sufferer in your family?
A nutritious breakfast is essential for a successful day. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive, but it should provide your body with all of the nutrients it requires to get off to a good start.
If you’re a parent, you should keep a few basic breakfast options on hand so that you can start the day off well. Making breakfast is about more than simply putting something in their mouths; it’s also about providing them with energy for the day and setting an example of how to eat well.
Instead of leaving those components out of the entire recipe, leave them out of one or two cups.
Breakfasts may also be prepared ahead of time and reheated later, making them even more convenient!
Are Egg Muffins Healthy?
YES! These muffin-pan eggs are a high-protein, low-carb breakfast that can be tailored to fit a variety of lifestyles and diets. You may prepare egg white muffins with only egg whites or vegetarian-style muffins with only veggies as your mix-ins to save calories.
You can make keto egg muffins by substituting cream or water for the milk and adding bacon, spinach, green onion, and cheese to the mix-ins.
How To Re-Heat Egg Muffins
Simply place any leftover morning egg muffin cups in an airtight container or zip-top bag and keep in the refrigerator for up to one week. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds to reheat. If reheating more than one egg muffin at a time, extend the cooking time by about 15 seconds per egg muffin or until thoroughly cooked.
Can You Freeze Egg Muffins?
I’m going to tell you the truth right now. You can freeze them and reheat them later, but I don’t think they taste as good. After freezing and re-heating, the texture changes, and they just taste better fresh or even chilled and re-heated.
Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and set them in a freezer-safe, air-tight bag or container to give them the best chance of freezing and tasting delicious. Allow to defrost overnight in the refrigerator before reheating in a toaster oven or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
