Ingredients in Egg Muffins

They’re so versatile; you can add almost anything to them and try new flavors every time!

Eggs – Use large whole eggs. You can also use half egg whites (from a carton) or egg substitute. I season with salt & black pepper, feel free to add other seasonings, herbs, or parsley.

Vegetables – Bell peppers and diced onion add flavor. These muffins are versatile – try mushrooms, broccoli, chopped spinach, or diced tomatoes.

Meat – Ham, sausage, or bacon are great options in these egg muffins. You can use deli ham, leftover ham, or other leftover meat.

Cheese – Sharp cheddar is a great choice for these muffins but you can use almost any kind of cheese. Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack would taste great, too!

How To Make Egg Muffins

These little egg cups are very simple to make and taste almost like mini frittatas.

  1. Grease the muffin tin well or use silicone liners.
  2. Add the add-ins to the muffin wells and top with beaten egg.
  3. Bake until set and enjoy!

Holly’s Quick Tips

  • If adding watery veggies like mushrooms, quickly pre-cook them to remove excess moisture.
  • Grease your muffin tin well or use silicone or parchment liners, the eggs tend to stick to paper liners.
  • Fill the muffin cups about ¾ full. They will puff up and then fall as they cool.
  • Run a butter knife along the edges to remove the eggs from the wells.

Storing, Freezing, & Reheating Egg Muffins

Refrigerator: Once baked, egg muffins can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Freezer: Egg bites can frozen for up to 3 months. Store them in an airtight container or freezer bag.

To Reheat: Microwave thawed egg muffins for 40 to 60 seconds, if heating more than one, you’ll need to increase the time. If reheating from frozen, they’ll need a bit longer, about 60-90 seconds.

Make Ahead Egg Muffins

Egg muffins are a delicious and tasty breakfast, naturally low carb, and easy to make ahead of time!

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 22 minutes

Total Time 32 minutes

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, salt, & pepper until well combined.

  • Spray a muffin pan very well with cooking spray, or line with silicone or parchment liners. Divide the red pepper, onion, ham/bacon/sausage, and cheese over 12 wells.

  • Pour the egg mixture over the cheese mixture.

  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until set.

  • Let rest 3 minutes. Run a butter knife along the edges to release the muffins and remove them from the muffin tin.

  • Serve warm or let cool completely and refrigerate or freeze.

Eggs: Muffin tins can vary in size slightly (and it can also depend on how much “add-ins” are added) so you may need a little bit more or less egg, fill the wells about ¾ full or a little bit more. I use 10 eggs to make 12 muffins. They will puff up as they bake and fall a bit after baking.
This recipe can also be made using 6 whole eggs and 1 cup of egg whites. 
Additions: Add any kind of leftovers, potatoes, veggies, or meats. If you add extra add-ins, you may need a bit less egg.
If using sausage, cook in a large skillet over medium-high heat until no pink remains.
Reheating: Reheat cooked egg muffins in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or until heated through.
