Egg Muffin Base

  • 12 whole eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped chive or parsley Optional

Country Style Breakfast Egg Muffins

  • 4 whole strips bacon fully cooked ahead of time
  • 1 whole vine ripe tomato diced
  • 1/4 each red onion brunoise cut
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded

Gourmet Ham Breakfast Egg Muffins

  • 2 each button or cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 slice Ham diced
  • 2 tbsp goat cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 cup spinach roughly chopped

Veggie Loaded Breakfast Egg Muffins

  • 1/2 cup raw broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup red pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion brunoise cut


  • 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 and optional herbs.
  • Prepare various filling ingredients as per the flavor recommendations listed.
  • Brush or spray a 12 cup muffin pan liberally with oil, or non-stick spray to prevent the egg muffins from sticking.
  • Evenly distribute the filling ingredients among the muffins cups, and then pour the egg filling over top, filling each cup about 3/4 full. It's ok if you have leftover filling.
  • Bake the assembled breakfast egg muffins at 350F for 20-25 minutes until set and just starting to brown on top.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy the breakfast egg muffins while hot, or cool and refrigerate for meal prep!
