An Easy Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins Recipe
I strongly believe that kids deserve to eat real food cooked at home and made from scratch as often as possible. Homemade meals don’t have to be super fancy or difficult to make.

The best part about this easy creative breakfast recipe is that you can use different ingredients for your muffins all the time. I use whatever I have left in my fridge which is very convenient. Veggies, cheese, deli meats, etc. Just make them according to your taste. This couldn’t be a better way to make an easy breakfast that everyone in the family will love.
Start Your Day Full Of Nutrition With This Creative Egg Muffins Recipe
This recipe is really full of nutrition. I like to use organic pasture-raised healthy eggs that will give you lots of high-quality protein. Some veggies will add fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients to this super healthy and easy breakfast option.
These little muffin cups are also so easy to make, you can get your kids involved in the process. My kids get super excited every time I make them. Instead of boring scrambled eggs, give them super fun egg muffins. They love adding the different toppings and watching how they bake in the oven. Not only is this a quick healthy breakfast, but a fun activity with the little ones.

What You Need For Your Egg Breakfast Muffins
All you really need is a muffin or cupcake tin, eggs, milk, and your favorite ingredients. You can add different toppings for more variety, and according to the different tastes in the family. This is a great recipe also if you want your kids to try new foods. The veggies are kind of hidden in the muffins, making it easier for picky eaters to want to eat them.
If you don’t eat them all for breakfast you can save some for later. You can even pop a few in a lunchbox or take them on the go for a healthy snack. You may also love my 3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas For Eating On The Go and Best Breakfast Baked Avocado Eggs Recipe posts.
Mix-In Ideas for These Easy Healthy Breakfast Muffins
I really like these egg muffins with ham and cheese, or spinach and bacon. Mushrooms and cheese is another family favorite combination. Try also red or green peppers, tomatoes, zucchini and even some quinoa for extra protein. Make a big batch with different toppings and have them ready for the week. This way, you could have different flavors each time. A few more ideas include:
- Avocado and kale
- Ricotta, parmesan and basil
- Feta cheese and Kalamata olives (like a Greek omelet muffin!)
- Gruyère cheese and sausage
- Mozzarella and cherry tomatoes
- Avocado and salmon (with or without cream cheese)
- Pesto and sun-dried tomatoes
Basically, anything that you can put into an omelet can go into these yummy breakfast muffins! You can also just use whatever you have available in your fridge. Leftover veggies from dinner? Shredded cheese sitting in your refrigerator about to expire? What about some deli meats you have left from making some sandwiches? Cut down on your food waste AND make delicious egg muffins at the same time! Isn’t it just great? I think so!
This recipe saves you time and money, and your family will absolutely love these easy breezy, super healthy and delicious breakfast egg muffins. You can keep them in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. What I do is pop them in my toaster oven 5-7 minutes before serving. They also freeze well. They’re really just the perfect healthy on-the-go breakfasts for busy families!
Making Egg Muffins Is A Great Way For Picky Eaters To Try New Foods
Kids love muffins so they will be more willing to try new foods if they are presented in a creative way. Try adding a new veggie and see if they like it. You can start with mild flavors like spinach, cauliflower or carrots. Then, little by little add more ingredients, try using different toppings each time, and watch your kids fall in love with this recipe! Yum! For adults, this recipe is like eating your favorite omelet in the shape of a muffin.
