Breakfast Egg Muffins with Meal Prep Instructions

Easy, low carb, and freezer friendly Keto Breakfast Egg Muffins are a perfect make ahead healthy breakfast for people on the go. Add any veggies you like, mix with eggs and cheese, then bake!

A HEALTHY MAKE AHEAD KETO BREAKFAST IDEA

Breakfast Egg Muffins are an amazing Keto Breakfast recipe packed with flavor and healthy ingredients. Egg Muffins come together relatively quick and can easily be customized with your favorite add ins.

My favorite part is that they keep well in the fridge for days, and can also be frozen! 🙌 We make these easy egg muffins ahead of time and reheat them throughout the week for a perfect meal on-the-go.

When I snooze the alarm more than 3 times, nothing saves the day (or morning) like these guys. Honest. I throw them in the microwave for about 40 seconds and pass them around while driving everyone to their destination.

How to Make Breakfast Egg Muffins

  • First, you want to choose what you would like to include inside the egg muffins. My choices are always the following three, and I make all three in a 12-cup muffin tin. 

Ingredients for Breakfast Egg Muffins

  1. Feta, spinach, tomatoes, and red onions.
  2. White cheddar, sliced mushrooms, and diced sun-dried tomatoes in oil.
  3. Sharp cheddar, BACON, and broccoli.

There’s a 4th choice, here, too. It includes all of my leftovers. YES, leftover meats and veggies from the week. Throw them in there and you’ll look forward to making more leftovers. 

  • Next, after dicing up and prepping our mix-ins, grab your eggs and crack them open. 
  • Add the eggs to a mixing bowl with your favorite seasonings and whisk them well. 
  • Generously spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. 
  • Arrange your add-ins – veggies, cheeses, and meats – inside the muffin cups.
  • Divide the egg mixture evenly among muffin cups, only about 2/3 full, and bake. Don’t fill the muffin cups to the top — the eggs will overflow and make a big mess in the oven. 
  • Bake at 400F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until eggs are set. 

A make ahead, simple breakfast, ideal for those of you that are always on the go. It’s a high protein, low carb, Keto breakfast recipe, and a wonderfully delicious treat.

HOW TO MEAL PREP EGG MUFFINS

To start, you will need to get some meal prep containers. My favorites (affiliate link)  ⬇️

Meal Prep Containers

Next, you want to decide what you would like to prepare for your breakfast meal prep.

My suggestions are cheese (ALWAYS!), almonds, berries, and two egg muffins. You get your protein, your veggies, fruits, and nuts! That’s a pretty nice, well balanced meal. 

Keep in the fridge until ready to eat/serve. Reheat muffins before serving.

  1. Hi, something went wrong with mine. They are dry but the flavor is good. I froze them and popped one in the mic this morning for 35 seconds, then 5 seconds more because the middle wasn’t done. I should have tried one before I froze them because now I’m not sure if it was the original cooking process or the freezing and reheating. Per the recipe, I baked them at 400 for 13 minutes. Cooled for 5 them removed from tins and cooled on racks completely before freezing. The looked good, browned on the bottom. What do you think?

      When reheating anything…eggs, cooked chicken, etc….use the defrost setting on your microwave. It reheats but does not cook on high and therefore does not over-cook and toughen the product you are trying to just reheat. Try adding a few drops of water to the product as well. Microwaves use moisture to cook or reheat. This is how I always reheat food.
