  • Healthy Egg Mini- Muffin Cups Recipe

I know you read “muffin cups” in the title, but these are not muffins! They are eggs baked in mini muffin cups.

I know it is important to eat a nice healthy breakfast, especially with protein. Unfortunately, some mornings it is difficult. I came up with this recipe so I could heat up something quick and healthy on those very busy mornings.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

The beauty of this recipe is you can use just about anything you’ve got in the fridge. I used zucchini and cheese (hard for me to go without the cheese), but there are so many other possibilities. You could add in green peppers and maybe a little finely chopped onion.

Let us know what you would add. Enjoy!

Healthy Egg Muffin Cups

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs
  • 3-4 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 4 oz shredded cheese, grated (pick your favorite - I like Colby Jack)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C). Generously spray your mini muffin tin (or use a silicon muffin pan).
  2. Wisk the eggs with the milk. Add salt and pepper if you like.
  3. Mix in the zucchini and the cheese. I grated a large zucchini and only used half of it. Sprinkle in as much or as little as you like. Same for the cheese.
  4. Fill your muffin cups about 2/3 full. The eggs will puff up a bit so don't fill the cups all the way to the top.
  5. Bake at 375 F for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs are cooked on the top.
  6. Let cool slightly for a few minutes and scoop out of pan. Enjoy!

These freeze great!

You can fast freeze (on a cookie sheet in the freezer) for about an hour. Once they are slightly frozen, you can put them all in a freezer bag. Now, you have a yummy healthy breakfast you can have quickly and easily. You can even eat them on the go.
To reheat, put in the microwave for 15-20 or until heated through. It is that easy!

How much do these cost?

Right now a dozen eggs is $1.49 at Aldi. One zucchini is about $.40 and the cheese is about $.50.

Total: $2.39 – only $.20 per muffin!

    You have 350 and 375 on the recipe, which one is the correct temp? Thanks!

      Sorry – either one will work. I normally do 375. I’ll update that.
      Thanks!
