These Healthy Egg Muffins are super simple and delicious! Add cheese, meat and veggies to make these tasty breakfast muffins, or customize them with your favorite ingredients. They’re not only great for breakfast but also for snacks and lunch!
I love having quick and easy breakfast recipes on hand, and especially ones I can make ahead! These healthy egg muffins are great for making ahead, as well as breakfast sandwiches, applesauce muffins, and breakfast burritos.
A quick, healthy breakfast
I’ve discussed my love of breakfast foods before and with it being the new year, I thought I’d share a healthy breakfast recipe today (it’s now a go to like our smoothies and Avocado Eggs).
This recipe is for healthy Egg Muffins aka Muffin Tin Eggs. It’s a simple and delicious recipe that is made of sausage, cheese, eggs and a few spices – and baked in a muffin tin. The thing I like most is that they can be put together really quick and then just thrown in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
They also keep well in the fridge for a week or so and can be easily re-heated. Sometimes, things are pretty crazy here in the morning so it’s nice to have something tasty and quick like these to re-heat, rather than having a bowl of cereal (which is our typical go-to breakfast food).
How to Make Egg Muffins
We love simple and tasty recipes, and love that with the customizations, the kinds of egg muffins to be made are endless! Here is what you need to do to make them…
MIX. Mix all ingredients together, whisking your eggs first. Pour mixture into sprayed muffin tin cups, filling them almost to the top.
BAKE. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking often. Eggs will puff up and look like they are over flowing. Don’t be alarmed, they will set back down to normal size.
Tip: Be sure to spray the tin well, so the egg muffin cups easily come out. We like them best directly in the muffin tin, but you could also use reusable silicone muffin liners. The cooked egg muffins slide right out and you can reuse the liner to make more delicious muffins!
egg muffin cup additions
These Muffins are very customizable. You can use different cheese, different meats, as well as different add-ins. Throw in some or any veggie for that matter. 😉
- Vegetables: Try any combinations of chopped spinach, diced tomatoes, chopped zucchini, chopped asparagus, garlic mushrooms, bell peppers, chives or scallions.
- Meat: We prefer to use Turkey Sausage so they are a bit more healthy, but bacon, ham, or regular sausage can be used too.
- Cheese: Cheddar, mozzarella, and even a Mexican blend all work great in this recipe
how to store and reheat egg muffins
Can breakfast egg muffins be frozen? Yes, once they have cooked allow them to cool, wrap each muffin with plastic wrap, and store in an airtight freezer safe container. Store for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge and reheat in the microwave or toaster oven.
How to reheat baked egg muffins? Cooked egg muffins can be stored in the fridge for about a week. To reheat in the microwave wrap the muffin in a damp paper towel cook for 15 seconds or until hot. Or you can reheat in toaster oven.
Can egg muffins be eaten cold? Since the muffins have been thoroughly cooked, it is safe to eat cold if that is your preference.

Thank you Kristyn and have a good weekend. Hugs to Lily
Just a note to let you know that the word Healthy is misspelled in your title.
These recipes look delicious!
These muffins look wonderful! Quick question- do you precook the sausage (or other meats)? Can’t wait to try this!
I love this recipe! This will be perfect for breakfast since we need healthy and quick meals. Your Biscuit Egg Casserole has become one of our family favorites. We have it atlas once a month. Can’t wait to make these muffins. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
In your directions, it says, “double your paper liners and spray well”. Does this mean to spray the paper liners? Thanks!
Yes, you will still want to 🙂 It helps!
I appreciate the fact that your recipes can be tweaked to accommodate alternative ingredients appropriate to my husband’s and my specific dietary requirements!
Awe, thank you so much for saying that!! Thank you for trying them 🙂
nice technique and recipe, thank you, much better than having to make these one serving at a time, especially in the morning
Thank you for sharing that! And, I agree!
PERFECT for meal prepping! Thank you!
These are so good! We love them best with sausage, but ham is also tasty!
I just loved it, I’m not only going to give it 5 stars. But, I’m going to share it with all my website’s followers on the social media. Thank you for giving me something useful to share it today!
Awe, thank you so much 🙂
yummm muffins. amazing.
Thank you so much!! Glad you liked them!
These are so great to make ahead and REFRIGERATE or freeze! Especially on those busy mornings when we are rushing out the door!
Wow, these are so good!! I am a sausage girl, so these are right up my alley! I love that you can grab & go!
A nice little breakfast that pops in your mouth. Full of veggies and cheese!
My husband eats Keto and these are the perfect ”on the go” snack for him. I also like to make your avocado cups for him.
Is one serving considered one or two egg cups? Thank you!
Stupid question maybe? am i supposed to cook the sausage prior to putting in the oven tin?
Not stupid at all 🙂 Yes, the sausage is cooked first. Hope you like it!
A+ these are awesome for meal prep and are so customizable and delicious! Wonderful idea and recipe!
How many carbs I wouldn’t imagine much, but would be nice to know
Not totally sure. We’ll have to look into that!
Can these be made without cheese?
I’m sure they could! I haven’t tried (because I love the cheese in there) but you could omit it. You’ll have to let us know how they turn out if you do.
