BREAKFAST EGG MUFFINS 

I hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoyed whatever is left of summer!

My son Will turned 4 on Friday so our weekend was filled with birthday festivities. 

I can’t believe he is another year older and is growing into a little man right before our eyes.  

We threw him a superhero party with all of his preschool friends, which was so cute and fun for Mike and I to put together.  

Thank you Pinterest! 

I recently shared a recipe for Southwestern Taco Egg Muffins and Southwestern Turkey Sausage Egg Cups that have been popular with my readers, family and friends, so I knew that these Baked Egg Cups.

These Breakfast Egg Muffins are easy and so tasty! 

Last weekend my family went camping in South Haven, Michigan with my husband’s family.  

When we go camping each family takes a meal.  We were in charge of breakfast and I made a big batch of these Baked Egg Cups along with this Mediterranean Frittata

We stayed in cabin’s so we had a microwave so I could easily heat these muffins up.  

I also think if you had a campfire going you could put a few of these over the fire for 1-2 minutes to heat them up.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE BREAKFAST EGG MUFFINS?

  • Eggs
  • Onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Spices

  4. Add the cooked vegetables to the eggs along with the chopped spinach and the 1 cup of cheese. Mix to combine and add a dash of salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the muffin tins {about 3/4 of the way full} and sprinkle each muffin with a small amount of the 1/2 cup of leftover cheese.
