I love having breakfast options that are easy during the week and are simple to make! These Easy Egg Muffins are just that. Made with just a few minutes and take less than 30 minutes to throw together. It’s easy to prep these at the beginning of the week and then have breakfast ready for the week.
I’m always looking for new ways to switch up breakfast and these Easy Egg Muffins are one of my favorites! Not only are they so simple to make, but they are a delicious, balanced way to start the day. If you don’t want these for breakfast, have them as a snack later on! There are a variety of ways these egg muffins can be switched up too. With different breakfast sausage or veggies, you’ll always have new variations to make.
Once I’ve prepped these, I love to top them with avocado or sriracha too. Pair them with a side of fresh fruit and hot coffee and you’ve got yourself a delicious start to the day.

How long do these egg muffins last?
These will last for up to 4 days in the fridge. They can also be frozen if you want to keep a stash in the freezer to pull out when you need them. I just recommend letting them thaw in the fridge for 12hrs before reheating.
Can I use different veggies in these muffins?
Yes! That’s one reason I love these making these. You can really switch up the veggies based off what you like and have. If you want to make them dairy free, you can omit the cheese too. Or if you want to make them vegetarian, leave out the chicken sausages. So many ways to switch them up!

I use a muffin pan and these silicone muffin cups to bake them in. I highly recommend using these so they don’t stick to your pan!
