Eating a healthy breakfast is so important. When I start the day off eating right, I have more energy and end up making healthy food choices for the rest of the day. But sometimes I wake up hungry and don’t have the time or motivation to cook something healthy…which is why I love these low-carb egg muffins. You can prepare them in advance and reheat each morning as needed!
I’ve seen these around on blogs and Pinterest (most recently on Veronika’s instagram here) so I decided to make my own version.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dice meat and vegetables (I chose broccoli, red onions and cooked chicken breast, but the combinations are endless!). Place in a silicone muffin tray (silicone makes it easier to remove the muffins. Mine has 6 cups/sections)
- Crack 6 eggs into a large measuring cup. Mix with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a splash of milk. Pour over the meat and vegetables. Top with grated cheese.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
- Enjoy! Refrigerate the rest in a tupperware and microwave (30 secs to 1 min) before eating.
The muffins were delicious – especially the broccoli and the cheese. I microwaved some for my kids when they came home – and they loved it too! I love how healthy and wholesome it is for them (since I used cooked chicken breast rather than processed deli meats). It’s also a tasty way to use up leftovers.
I plan on making variations of this recipe – I’m going to try substituting egg whites for some of the whole eggs and see how they turn out.
Do you have any quick and healthy breakfast ideas? Please share – I’m always looking for inspiration!
Yum! These look amazing. What a brilliant idea!! I usually grab an apple and some almonds on my way out the door, this is so much more appetizing!Kallie @ But First, Coffee
It is very yummy – I love a hot breakfast. I tried overnight oats before this (as a quick breakfast) but found them cold and unappetizing LOL!
Looks delish! I will be making these tomorrow!! Lately I've been into Green Monster smoothies – spinach and then whatever else floats your boat – banana, flax, almond milk, etc. yum!
I love smoothies but sometimes they make me so cold I want to crawl back in bed and go to sleep LOL! But they're sooo healthy!
Thanks for the shout out! Those look delish!!!
Thanks for the inspiration – love all the healthy food options you've been trying and sharing (i.e. packing lunches etc)
Wow – these look amazing – easy, healthy and delicious! Can't beat that.Thanks for sharing!http://theworldfrommystilettos.blogspot.ca/
Glad you liked it Sam – I love that they taste good reheated – that's not always the case wit healthy food.
Well, this has certainly been pinned to my Pinterest so I can try it out!
LOL! Let me know how they turn out for you!
How easy! I love that! Can't wait to try it out, as I love eggs in the morning! I usually do egg whites about two or three days a week now. I also love Greek yogurt and diced fruit, or a protein shake.
I LOVE a hot breakfast in the morning – but it seems like such a hassle to make it EVERYDAY lol! Now I only have to do it twice a week! The greek yogurt w/fruit sounds super yummy.
