How Long Do Breakfast Egg Muffins Last?

A question I get all the time from friends and family is, how long do breakfast egg muffins last in the fridge?

If quickly and properly cooled after the initial cooking, the little egg muffins will last 4 days if stored in an air tight food safe container in the fridge.

Once the muffins are fridge cold, you can also choose to store them in freezer bags to keep them even longer (up to 3 weeks) if you want.  To thaw them simply pull the bag from the freezer and let the egg muffins thaw in the fridge as you would with these blueberry bran muffins, or any other frozen muffin.

When freezing these in freeze bags, suck as much of the air out as possible to create a ‘vacuum. The lack of air and moisture will.prevent the egg muffins from freezer burn. – Chef Markus Mueller

Can You Eat Egg Muffins Cold?

The simple answer is YES!! Do you have to reheat the egg muffins in order to eat them ? No. Though I personally find they taste better, these simple egg muffins can be eaten cold as all the ingredients are already fully cooked. Perfect when in a rush.

How Do You Reheat Them?

Reheat any cooled breakfast egg muffins my popping them in a microwave or toaster oven until hot.

You can eat them with your fingers whole or break them up to make a quick egg scramble!

Breakfast Egg Muffin Base & Variations

Breakfast egg muffins are essentially small individual egg frittatas, making them easy to assemble. All you need to do is chop your filling ingredients, and then whisk the eggs and finally combine the two. To make a 12 cup muffin pan worth of egg muffins, you’ll need about a dozen eggs in total.

  1. Start by pre-heating your oven to 350F, and cracking 12 eggs into a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs until well combined, and then season with salt and pepper.a dozen whole eggs cracked into a metal bowl
  2. Prepare various filling ingredients as per the flavor recommendations below.
  3. Brush or spray a 12 cup muffin pan liberally with oil, or non-stick spray to prevent the egg muffins from sticking.
  4. Evenly distribute the filling ingredients among the muffins cups, and then pour the egg filling over top, filling each cup about 3/4 full.un cooked breakfast egg muffins assembled in a 12 cup muffin tin
  5. Bake the assembled breakfast egg muffins at 350F for 20-25 minutes until set and just starting to brown on top.
  6. Remove the egg muffins from the oven and let cool for at least 5 minutes before attempting to remove from the pan. Use a knife to cut around the sides and loosen the egg muffins if need be.
