Ever have a morning that instead of getting up and going, you feel like your Giddy Up… Got Up… and Gat. Those are the days I want to climb back in bed and pull the covers over my head. But as we all know, that’s never an option. That’s why I like to keep on hand this Breakfast Egg Muffin recipe on hand and in easy reach. They’re full of protein, yummy veggies, and ready to go with me out the door!
Why are they called Breakfast Egg Muffins?
These aren’t TRUE muffins, not in the same sense as a banana muffin or chocolate muffin. They are made in muffin tins and are about the same size as a small muffin. Once you eat one or two, they’re so tasty and nutritious you feel your own internal sun rising up ready to take on the day! A strong latte and a couple of these bad boys, I’m good to go!

How to make Breakfast Egg Muffins Ahead
On the weekends, I’ll make a couple batches of these and either freeze them or store them in an airtight container. They’ll keep for 2 months in the freezer, not much longer because there’s very little fat in them. They’re a little dry if you keep them frozen more than that. In the refrigerator, they keep for about a week. To thaw them out, put them in the frig over night or heat them in the oven on 200F on a baking sheet. If they’re just chillin’ in the frig, nuke for 20-30 seconds.

My other favorite go to breakfast are poached eggs. Aside from eating them with a slice of avocado and toast, I love a poached egg over a little left over pot roast, beef stroganoff and (don’t laugh) PIZZA!!! In our house, last night’s pizza is definitely a breakfast item. Here’s my fool proof easy poached egg method.
