Every time I stock my freezer with these easy breakfast Egg Muffins, I can’t help but high-five and hug myself! Meal-prep friendly and high protein, they’ll be your savior on busy mornings. Use any of your favorite veggies and proteins, make them for kids, and enjoy them yourself the next time you’re hungry but don’t have time to fix an Egg White Frittata.

Why You’ll Love This Healthy Egg Muffins Recipe

Breakfast egg muffins are baked egg cups (or mini frittatas, if you prefer a slightly fancier name; check out this Potato Frittata for full-sized).

Here are some reasons why I love them and think you will too!

  • High Protein. I hate when I eat breakfast and am hungry again an hour later. This high-protein healthy egg breakfast is truly satisfying.
  • 100% Make-Ahead Friendly. Pop an egg cup or two into microwave to reheat whenever you need a fast, filling breakfast or snack.
  • Versatile. You can load them with any variety of fresh vegetables, meat, and/or cheese as you please. Today’s combination of spinach, feta, and a colorful array of veggies is my all-around favorite!
  • Kid-Friendly. To make them appealing to kids, keep it simple with cheese, or add more toddler-friendly veggies like finely chopped broccoli or shredded carrots; the hand-held size makes veggies approachable.

5 Star Review

“Delicious and versatile! It’s my new go to sneak some chopped up veggies in with breakfast for my children! The spices weren’t too overbearing but made it super tasty. Coming back to this again and again!”

How to Make The Best Egg Muffins

The Ingredients

  • Eggs + Egg Whites. The base for our easy egg muffins.
  • Vegetables. Because I want this recipe to be filling and healthy, I always include a good amount of fresh vegetables like spinach, green and red peppers, and cherry tomatoes. You’ll feel great starting your day with a serving of veggies, and if you want to bring them to the office for lunch, the veggies make them a more complete meal.
  • Herbs and Spices. Because egg-white-heavy recipes can be—there really is no polite way to say this—SO BORING, we need to jazz these up with plenty of herbs and spices.
  • Cheese. An optional addition. I used feta, but you can use any other cheese you enjoy (a cheddar cheese version I made in my experimental attempts was delightful).
  • Toppings. The options are endless! Avocado, salsa, hot sauce, and freshly chopped parsley are all tasty ideas if you’re sitting down and have access to your fridge. In a rush? Just warm the up and enjoy them as they are.

The Directions

  1. Whisk. Combine the eggs, egg whites, herbs, and spices.

  1. Fill. Carefully pour in the egg mixture, then crumble feta over the top.
  2. Cook. Bake egg muffins at 350 degrees F for 24 to 28 minutes, until set. Let cool, then use a butter knife to loosen the outside of the muffins. Serve hot or store for later. ENJOY!

Recipe Adaptations + Dietary Swaps

  • Cheesy Egg Muffins. Making these muffins for veggie skeptics but still want a serving of healthy protein? Skip the veggies altogether, and simply use your favorite mix of cheeses, like Parmesan cheese or goat cheese.
  • Egg Muffins with Cottage Cheese. Replace the egg whites with 2/3 cup cottage cheese.
  • Spicy Egg Muffins. If you like your eggs on the spicy side, you can also add a few dashes of hot sauce or pinch of cayenne.
  • Zippy Egg Muffins. Try adding a few teaspoons of Dijon mustard.
  • Egg Muffins with Meat. Tasty but optional (these are plenty satisfying with veggies alone). Feel free to make this easy breakfast recipe with bacon (I highly recommend this method of Baked Bacon in the Oven or Air Fryer Bacon), fold in diced cooked ham, or make sausage egg muffins.
  • To Make Keto. No changes needed. These are keto egg muffins as written.
  • To Make Dairy-Free, Whole30, and Paleo. Omit the cheese. (If you’re looking for more Whole30 breakfast recipes, try this Whole30 Breakfast Casserole.)
  • Egg Muffins are gluten-free!

Storage and Reheating Tips

  • To Store in the Refrigerator. Let the muffins cool completely, then place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can store all of the muffins together in a single larger container or portion them into individual containers to take with you on the go.
  • To Freeze. Let the muffins cool completely, then individually wrap them in plastic wrap. Place them in a ziptop bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator or reheat directly from frozen.
  • To Reheat. Reheat gently in the microwave on medium power until hot and warmed through to the center, about 30 seconds (from thawed) or 1 to 2 minutes (from frozen).

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • Avoid Sticking. I cannot stress enough how important it is to generously coat your muffin pan with nonstick spray. You can also use a silicone muffin pan and nonstick spray. I’ve heard from multiple readers that cupcake liners and parchment paper baking cups were successful.
  • Watch Your Egg-to-Vegetable Ratio. The goal here is to ensure that each of the breakfast egg muffin cups packs a feel-good serving of vegetables without a) falling apart or b) tasting like a mini salad. I consider myself a vegetable enthusiast, but even I have my limitations before 10 a.m. This Healthy Breakfast Casserole has it down too. Follow the suggestions in this recipe and you are set!
  • Whole-Egg to Egg-White Ratio. The ideal whole-egg to egg-white ratio for a batch of egg muffins is 6 whole eggs plus 4 egg whites. This makes them higher in protein, but keeps them from being spongy.
  • Watch the Water Content. If your egg muffins are soggy, you likely used a lot of veggies with high water content. Next time, saute the veggies before adding them to the egg cups to remove the excess moisture.
  • Reheat Like a Champ. If you experience wateriness when reheating leftover egg muffins, try wrapping them in a barely moistened paper towel before reheating in the microwave.

This easy egg muffins recipe is the perfect high protein breakfast or snack, freezer and kid-friendly. Use your favorite veggies for these egg cups!

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes

Servings: 12 muffins


  • 1 cup lightly packed baby spinach chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper about 1 small pepper
  • 3/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper about 1 small pepper
  • 3/4 cup quartered cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, about 1 cup whole tomatoes
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch ground black pepper or cayenne pepper if you like a little kick!
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese plus additional to sprinkle on top
  • Optional toppings: avocado salsa, hot sauce, freshly chopped parsley


  • Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray. Divide the spinach, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and tomatoes among the cups (they will be about two-thirds of the way full).
  • In a large bowl or large measuring cup with a spout (my favorite because it makes the mixture easy to pour), briskly whisk together the eggs, egg whites, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper until well combined. Carefully fill each muffin cup three-quarters of the way to the top with the egg mixture. Sprinkle the feta evenly over the tops of the cups.
  • Bake for 24 to 28 minutes, until the egg muffins are set. Let cool for a few minutes, and then run a butter knife around the edges of each muffin to loosen it. Remove them from the pan and enjoy immediately, or let cool on a wire rack and refrigerate or freeze for later (see notes for more details).



  • TO STORE: Let the muffins cool completely, then place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can store all of the muffins together in a single larger container or portion them into individual containers to take with you on the go. Plastic wrap and even plastic baggies work well for portability too.
  • TO REHEAT: Unwrap the muffins if needed, and place on a microwave-safe plate. Reheat gently in the microwave on medium power until hot and warmed through to the center, about 30 seconds (from thawed) or 1 to 2 minutes (from frozen).
  • TO FREEZE: Let the muffins cool completely, then individually wrap them in plastic wrap. Place them in a ziptop bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator or reheat directly from frozen.

  1. Dear Erin, I love your blog and have been reading it for quite some time now. I enjoy cooking and also reading about cooking so I deeply appreciate that you post so regularly (and with no adds in between the recipes – thank you again!). I am big fan of your rosted carrot soup, so simple and it is one of the vegetables I always have at home (it resolves the thursday dinner crises). I will defenitely make these muffins since we have recently started to host and get invited to brunchs and I am always looking for healthy and tasty ideas. Greetings from another country and continent and keep up with your excelent work!

    1. Thank you so much, Caroline! I so appreciate your taking the time to leave this thoughtful comment. I hope you enjoy the muffins too!

  2. Hi Erin. Please share why the egg whites are needed? I’m guessing as a “binding agent”? Can I make these without the egg whites? I’m learning. I can’t wait to make these! Happy Friday!!! 

    1. Hi Andrea, I use egg whites to up the protein content in this recipe (they are the most protein-rich part of the egg), but you can use 2 additional whole eggs in place of the 4 egg whites if you prefer not to have extra egg yolks left over. I hope you enjoy!

  3. thank you for this, have been eating essentially most of these ingredients every morning as part of a routine, but would like a break every once in a while, love the idea of making ahead and freezing these

    1. Sabrina, I hope you love them! It is so refreshing to have something new for breakfast (I’m a creature of habit myself sometimes!)

  4. Nicely done Erin! Most people don’t have the time to mess about in the kitchen in the morning so making a tone of these would be perfect! (:

    1. Im about to food prep these now for the weekend, next week. I see you already answered my first question about using 6 whole eggs! Thanks for that! My other question is if I should use those little muffin tin liners or olive oil as a substitute as I am out of cooking spray. My instinct says use a light coat of olive oil. Lastly, many recipes ive read say to not salt eggs while cooking as it breaks down the proteins….but with the added veggies I think it really does need to be included prior to cooking. Do you think it matters? Should I just salt the veggies and not salt the egg mixture? Thanks for your advice!

      1. Hi Jennifer! I’d brush the pans with olive oil. That should work fine. And I haven’t heard that about salt to be honest. I love it for flavor here, though you can sprinkle salt on afterwards if you prefer. I hope you enjoy them!

  5. These are SO CUTE! We’re always looking for something different for breakfast instead of same old, same old. This is clearly a way to use some leftover veggies (if they make sense, of course) but the recipe as it stands will be good for us! And to be able to make ahead is a huge selling point. Have a great weekend.

  6. These would be perfect to bring to work for breakfast! Great recipe. I like feta, but I LOVE cheddar, so I’ll probably try that version.5 stars

    1. Danielle, it’s hard to pick a fave and the great thing with these is that you don’t have to. Thank so much and I hope you love them!

  7. Made these for a brunch this morning and they were a hit! I did sauté the veggies a little bit to make sure they’d be soft and they were excellent. Thank you for yet another perfect recipe! 

    1. Allison, I am SO excited to hear this, thank you!!! I’m so happy you all loved them. Thanks for taking time to leave this wonderful comment too!

  8. So I made these little guys this morning for breakfast – SO GOOD! I did add a small amount of finely chopped onions and also some bacon that I’d fried and crumbled ahead of time. I made 6 of them with feta and 6 with sharp cheddar; both equally as tasty. This made a very adequate breakfast with a piece of oat nut toast. Thanks for a handy make-ahead recipe.5 stars

    1. Your additions sound delicious, Chris! I’m so glad the recipe is a winner—thanks for taking the time to try it and report back!

  9. Would these be diabetic friendly? Newly diagnosed and searching for breakfast ideas, when these beauties popped up on my search! 

    1. Hi Michelle, the recipe does seem to fit in with many of the guidelines, but since I don’t have a medical background, I’d check with your doctor or nutritionist if you have specific questions or concerns about the recipe. I’d hate to give you advice that isn’t correct and want to be safe!

    1. Hi Leslie, yes, you can! Check out the directions in the notes section, just below the recipe. I hope you enjoy!

  10. I’d like to serve these at a baby shower brunch, but would like to make them the evening before. Do you think they would reheat well in the oven without drying out?

    1. Yes Jo, I think that would be fine! You could even make a test batch just to make sure you’re happy with the final texture. A little extra cheese would help keep them from drying out too. Otherwise, you could prep all the filling ingredients the day before, then just stir everything together and bake the morning of.

  11. Love these! I’m always in a hurry and sometimes forget to eat breakfast. I used queso fresco instead of feta, it’s a little too strong for me and yum! Thank you5 stars

  12. Very tasty and satisfying.  My teenage daughter loves these.  I also made using kale instead of spinach.  Thanks for sharing recipe.5 stars

  13. Hi Erin. These look great! I was just wondering (since I can’t have lactose) what can I use instead of the feta cheese, or can I skip this ingredient all together? Thanks! Love your blog!

  14. I sprayed my muffin tins of really well and these all stuck really badly. Destroyed. So frustrating because I was making them for a group event where I had signed up to bring food and now I’ve got nothing to bring.

    1. Hi Shauna, I’m sorry to hear the muffins stuck to your tin—it can really depend on the type of tin and quality of the coating sometimes. I know it’s disappointing to try a new recipe and not have it come out, so I truly wish it would have worked better for you!

    2. Hi Everyone, I have tried a recipe like this before and mine have always stuck no matter what I tried. I have been using PaperChef Culinary Parchment Non-Stick Large Baking Cups from Target for my muffins. I never thought to try them for these. I tried it today and it worked did not stick at all. I am now wondering if I can make my own out of parchment paper. Thought this might help someone else who was having the same problem. They are about 2.49 for 60 and go to 425 degrees.5 stars

  15. Erin, have you made these in an instant pot? If so, would you please walk me through that? I’m an Instant pot newbie. Just made hard boiled eggs under my egg setting. So quick! And peeled amazingly!  Thank you!

    1. Hi Jody, I have not made these in the Instant Pot, so I’m afraid I don’t have any specific advice to give on that front. I hope you love these if you give them a try!

  16. The veggie egg cups are an additional treat by adding a tablespoon of cooked quinoa in the bottom of the muffin cups with the veggies prior to baking. Ummmmmmn  LOVE UR SITE!!5 stars

  17.  I made these and they looked  fluffy and great coming out of the oven, but shortly after they deflated. Any idea why? Thank you. 

    1. Hi Theresa! The muffins are by nature fairly flat. They are more like mini omelette cups versus a tall, domed bakery type of muffin. I hope you enjoy them!

  18. These are incredible! Thank you for the recipe! I made these egg cups yesterday for the first time after hearing about your website in my Weight Watcher’s community. Your egg cups are all the rage! I used low fat feta and they taste delish. Today, I “splurged” and added, as you suggested, salsa and avocado. I found that I could skip my mid-morning snack, because I was so full from breakfast! I love the fact that I could sneak an extra portion of veggies into my diet. These cups reheated really well for me. I can’t wait to explore the rest of your site to see what other yummy, healthy goodies I can round up! Thank you, Erin!5 stars

    1. Sarah, I’m so happy to hear these were a hit! I’m so glad to have you as a reader, and I hope you find many more new favorite recipes to try!

  19. Can I use the 100 % egg whites in the carton? I had bought those for a similar recipe but this one sounds way better.

    1. Linda, yes! You can swap the egg whites called for in the recipe for the egg whites in the carton. The carton should suggest an amount per white. I would use the whole eggs called for in the recipe though to make sure your muffins have enough structure. I hope you enjoy!

    2. I’ve made a version of these egg muffins and all the comments are spot on, they are wonderful! I have added a layer of cooked red quinoa and this ups the fiber, protein and crunch factor. YUMMY!!

  20. Hello Erin and thank you for your beautiful recipe!
    Is there a way to prevent the egg muffins from deflating when I get them out of the oven?
    The are so big and puffed while in the oven,and in minutes after they are out,they lose most of their volume.
    What is the problem?
    Thank you again

    1. Hi Georgia, these muffins naturally are fairly flat on top but are still delicious! I hope you enjoy them.

  21. Hi Erin! These look delicious & I can’t wait to make. Could I sub frozen veggies for the fresh ones? If so, should they be cooked first? Thank you!

    1. Hi Jen, you could precook them or let them thaw and pat them thoroughly dry with a paper towel. (Frozen veggies tend to give off a lot of moisture.) I haven’t tried using frozen veggies myself, but if you decide to experiment, I’d love to hear how it goes!

  22. Looking forward to trying this! Just want to let you know though that the Cabot’s cheese pop up ad is so obstructive that it is deterring me from looking at anything else on the blog :/

    1. Liz, I am sorry for the hassle! It should have a clear way to close it (a video pop up might take a few seconds to display it, but there will be a clear “close” button). Let me know it doesn’t!

  23. Hi Erin, I have a pretty old muffin tin so i’m not sure how much they will still stick even if i use alot of nonstick spray. Can I put the paper muffin cups in the tin instead and bake the mixtures in there to be safe?

    1. Hi Claire! I haven’t tried paper liners, but it could possibly stick to those too. You are welcome to experiment, but I still recommend being generous with nonstick spray. I hope it works!

  24. I love all the ingredients in this recipe and the muffins have great flavor.  Here’s my complaint…even with the nonstick spray the eggs stuck in each cup and I’m having a terrible time getting all the stuck egg washed out.  Because of this problem I’ll probably not try this recipe without a different pan.My pan is dark metal and it’s new.  Perhaps you can make suggestions on removing the stuck egg.  I tried hot water and vinegar…not working.3 stars

    1. Hi Lesley, I’m sorry to hear the muffins stuck to your tin—it can really depend on the type of tin and quality of the coating sometimes. I know it’s disappointing to try a new recipe and not have it come out, so I truly wish it would have worked better for you! For cleaning the pan, you could try sprinkling it with salt and letting it sit for a few minutes, then try to rub away with a soft sponge or cloth. I hope this helps!

    1. Hi Angela, I have not tried these in a mini muffin tin, but I bet they will be delicious! I’d suggest checking them after about 10 minutes to make sure they don’t overcook. I hope you enjoy them!

        1. Hi Angela! I use egg whites to up the protein content in this recipe (they are the most protein-rich part of the egg), but you can use 2 additional whole eggs in place of the 4 egg whites if you prefer. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  25. I never leave recipe reviews but I had to for this one. These are AMAZING! It smelled like I was baking a pizza, and the taste is sooo good. Not heavy or overwhelming. Very light and delicious! I added chopped onion and mushroom, used fresh basil instead of dried and added some crushed red pepper. Ended up using 9 whole eggs and it was just enough for 12 muffins. 280 calories for 4 of them means 3 days of healthy breakfasts from this one batch! Thank you so much for this recipe! It is everything!5 stars

  26. Really a healthy recipe..!!! I like it and it is easy to make and it can be prepared with in an half an hour that’s superb.5 stars

  27. My husband is a firefighter who has 24-hour shifts. He has to pack a full day’s worth of prepared food into his thermal food container before leaving at 6am for work. This dish is so delicious, healthy and perfect for an easy-to-carry dish that he can reheat for his breakfast. Thanks!5 stars

  28. I’ve made this recipe three weeks in a row and it still tastes AMAZING. thanks for the clear steps and walking through all the different substitutions!5 stars

  29. I tried these using silicone muffin liners, not sprayed, in a normal muffin pan. They practically fell out of the wrappers! I did use only whole eggs (to avoid leftover yolks), not sure if that made a difference.

    Also, we loved that these smelled like pizza when cooking.5 stars

  30. I varied the ingredients (using broccoli instead of bell peppers) and used a 3-cheese blend (parmesan/asiago/romano)…it was my first time baking eggs. Turned out yummy.5 stars

  31. Just made these. Any reason why the bottoms are kind of shriveled? I think I put too much bacon onions and peppers before the eggs, could that have had something to do with it? Tastes awesome. Just look really weird lmao

    1. Hi Danielle! It’s hard to say what might’ve happened without being in the kitchen with you. I’m so happy that you enjoyed them though!

    1. Hi Alicia! I use egg whites to up the protein content in this recipe (they are the most protein-rich part of the egg), but you can use 2 additional whole eggs in place of the 4 egg whites if you prefer not to have extra egg yolks leftover. I hope you enjoy!

  32. Made egg muffins using broccoli, 3 cheddar cheese blend, bacon, Mrs Dash, Worchestershire sauce, added a little almond flour; then stirred each filled cup with a fork and cooked. I loved it! Thank you, Erin, for this very adaptable recipe and letting us know we could change and add as we desired! You are “The Most”!5 stars

  33. Delicious! Was looking for a low calorie, protein filled uivk breakfast. Will make aagainand try different fillings.5 stars

  34. The muffins had a very chewy texture which took away from the flavor. Was hoping to serve this weekend but must continue my search.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that these muffins weren’t to your tastes, Julie. I (and many other readers) have enjoyed them, so I truly wish they would’ve been a hit for you too!

  35. I love this kind of recipe and definitely plan to make these. They are such a great way to start the day!5 stars

  36. Pre baking question: Can I vary the egg muffins? For example 6 without veggies and only meat and the other 6 with veggies and meat?
    Can you also add diced potatoes to this?


    1. Hi Caitlin! Yes, you can vary the egg muffins! I have lots of variation ideas in the blog post and at the end of the recipe card to help you! If you try them, let me know how it goes!

    2. Hello! So excited to try these. Wondering if anyone has had any luck reheating these from frozen in either an oven or toaster oven. We’re a microwave-free family so not an option, sadly, but hoping to be able to make these ahead of time to freeze! Any insight would be great.

      1. Hi Rosie, I haven’t tried reheating in the oven myself but I did some research online and it looks like you could try reheating at 350°F for 10-15 minutes or until heated all of the way through. Hope this helps and hope you enjoy them!

  37. I looked at several recipes and yours was the only one that did not mix the veggies with the whisked eggs. I was doing it that way anyway. Better proportion control as the veggies tend to sink if mixed first with the eggs.
    Great recipe. Great explanation. And silicone, the best!5 stars

    1. Hi Natasha! I am pretty sure I got this a Target, but that was awhile ago. I am not sure they still sell it. Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda! I wouldn’t recommend prepping ahead of time and baking later. I would recommend baking them, then reheating later. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Jack. When you crack the raw eggs, separate the yoke from the whites. The whites are the ones you use for this recipe. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Marianne! I would not recommend freezing these prior to cooking. It’s better to cook them, then freeze them. Hope this helps!

  38. Thank you for sharing this great recipe! I have a flock of 18 hens and have been searching for different ways to use up the dozen or so eggs I get each day. These egg frittata muffins are perfect! There is so much flexibility in ingredients for different taste preferences, too. And they are easy to make. I made spinach, peppers, bacon, pico de gallo, green chile egg muffins and now I’m making another batch using broccoli, red onion, bacon, cayenne, red chile and cheese. They smell so good when they are baking in the oven, too. I plan to freeze several dozen for quick breakfast on the go before trail rides and hiking. Thanks again!5 stars

  39. These were super easy and very tasty! I love reading the suggestions from commenters below– next time I will try salsa instead of tomatoes! The only thing is that I was afraid of sticking so I used paper muffin liners which didn’t work out so well (they easily came out of the pan but stuck to the liners). This may also be because I devoured them before they even had a chance to cool down, haha. Next time I’ll just try spraying a ton like you suggested.5 stars

  40. Delicious and versatile! It’s my new go to sneak some chopped up veggies in with breakfast for my children! The spices weren’t too overbearing but made it super tasty. Coming back to this again and again!5 stars

  41. I made these muffins for my grandson. They are so delicious and healthy and it’s the perfect portable breakfast when he goes to daycare. I just omitted the feta cheese because he is dairy free5 stars

  42. Ive tired this recipe twice. Great both times 😊 But to switch things up is there a way I could make this into a casserole dish instead of muffins form? I just find my muffins shrink too much in the liners when I make them. Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Amie! I’ve never tested it out in a casserole dish. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  43. Great and versatile recipe!
    They slid right off my silicone muffin cups.
    I added bacon bits and changed feta for cheddar.5 stars

  44. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’d like to. My question is about whether the raw veggies you put in actually get cooked, or will they still be crunchy and raw, and might it be better to saute them first?

  45. Love this recipe. Used to make it for easy before work commute. Still making it for quick nutritious breakfast for retired couple. What does everyone use to freeze theirs? I dont like all the plastic wrap I am currently using.

  46. Hi! I really enjoy these muffins. I froze them but unfortunately when I microwave them they get watery. Is that normal? If not, any tips to try to help with that? Thanks!

    1. Hi Devan, I’m sorry you have that problem, it’s not something I’ve experienced for. Doing some searches on Google, you could try wrapping them in a moisten paper towel before reheating in the microwave. Hope this helps!

  47. These are now a staple for my breakfast or a handy pick up mid afternoon. Simple to make and so so delicious!
    I’ve shared this recipe with family and friends and they all love it.5 stars

  48. How do these do when reheated from freezing?.my issue with egg whites is so much excess water coming out of the muffins out of the microwave.

    1. Hi Jennifer, I’m sorry you have that problem, it’s not something I’ve experienced for. Doing some searches on Google, you could try wrapping them in a moisten paper towel before reheating in the microwave. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Karen, I’ve only tested these muffins in a muffin pan. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  49. I froze the egg muffins for a few days. When I reheated one that was partially defrosted, it was very watery. Not sure how I’m going to solve this for serving two days from now.

    Also, they are pretty bland even with plenty of herbs, salt and pepper.

    1. Hi Kathy, the tomatoes and spinach tend to add more moisture to the egg muffins, especially after defrosting. If you wanted to take the extra step to prevent this next time you could sauté your vegetables first before baking. Also the taste has worked well for myself (and others) but we all have different taste so you might need to adjust the seasonings based on your taste.

  50. These are great! I made them in silicone buttered muffin cups and they cane out so easily. Everyone was impressed and we felt “fancy” eating these. Great brunch idea too!5 stars

  51. Don’t normally comment on recipes/blogs but these have been a godsend in overcoming my eating disorder. The texture is amazing, consistent and makes it easy to try new things. I’ll probably make these for the rest of my life!5 stars

  52. I just finished cooking these.
    In the oven they rose like a muffin but when I took them out after a couple of minutes they fell. They don’t look like the picture.

    I used whole eggs no whites and I used a hand blender on low not a wisk. Could that be the problem?

    They were totally cooked and lightly browned on top so I know they weren’t under done.

    Haven’t tasted yet but they smell delicious.

    1. Hi Gail! Any modifications to the recipe will give you a different result than what you see in the recipe, so that is likely the problem. Hope you enjoyed them!

  53. These were absolutely delicious! I used spinach, a bit of orange pepper, tomato, and diced up chicken sausage. I’d definitely make them again!5 stars

  54. Why add egg whites in addition to the whole eggs? Besides increasing the protein content, what difference does it make to the final product?I have not made these as yet but preparing to do so. I know I will not use the yoke of those eggs for anything else.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Naomi, this is the way I tested the muffins that produce the final result you see and that worked best for me. Hope you enjoy them!

  55. Just made these for a batch sharing with friends. They are delicious! I’ll freeze some on my own and let the group know how they microwaved later. This may be a lame question, but I can’t see to find a clear answer. 70 kcal = ? calories. Thanks!5 stars

    1. Hi Leslie! So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thank you for this kind review! It’s 70 calories! Hope that helps!

  56. I’m so excited to try this recipe! I don’t have a microwave, so if I were to meal prep and freeze the muffins, could I use the oven to reheat them?

    1. Hi Margarett! You likely could, it’s just not something I have tested before. If you decide to experiment, I’d love to know how it goes!

  57. CRUST ON THE BOTTOM: I sprayed the olive oil nonstick heavily and then added 1 tspn of almond flour on the bottom… everything else exact same. This created a no-carb bread bottom. ;) tasted great and more filling in the tummy. (Hint: keep Almond flour in fridge or freezer to prevent any natural almond oil in the flour from spoiling) this recipe is the Best!! I went out and bought mor cupcake pans because of it!

  58. Would it be ok to assemble these and leave the muffin pan in the frig overnight and bake the next morning? I’m excited to make these!

    1. Hi Laura! I have no idea what happens to the egg once it would sit like that overnight. I honestly wouldn’t recommend. it Hope you enjoy it!

    2. Lots of egg recipes are overnight and bake in the morning (often for egg dishes with bread to soak up) so I’d guess it would be ok to make ahead and cook in the morning. Either let it come to room temp before baking or you’d maybe need to add a bit more time baking from cold.

      1. Hi Maggie, thanks for the tips. I really do think for this recipe it wouldn’t work. Yes and overnight french toast casserole with a egg mixture is great for sitting overnight, but a quiche like recipe (these are similar) would not be. But Laura is more than welcome to try and report back. Thanks!

  59. It took all my self control to keep from eating all 12 at once. So easy, good and low cal. Thank you.5 stars

  60. Confusing. All egg white recipe includes direction to use 6 large eggs and 4 egg whites. Please clarify.

    1. Hi Carol! I don’t include an all egg white recipe for these egg muffins. I actually do not recommend it. They can fall apart and be spongy. Hope this helps!

      1. Hi River, I do not have that kind of oven so I really can’t say for sure. Doing a quick Google search shows me that a fan forced oven is similar to a convection oven. If that is the case, you typically lower the oven temperature by 15 degrees. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  61. Delicious and very easy to make! I made them for my meal prep at the beginning of the week and I have just been microwaving two of them for breakfast, they reheat easily and taste great!5 stars

  62. I have not made this recipe yet, but sounds so yummy! I have a question before I make it. It calls for 6 eggs plus 4 egg whites. What would be a good suggestion for the 4 eggs yokes that are not used? Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Cheryl! I love using the egg yolks to make this oat milk ice cream: Enjoy!

    2. Hi Cheryl, You ” could” TEMPER an egg yolk into hot mashed potatoes. Or see if this site has directions for tempering eggs into hot ingredients.
      OR you could scramble 1 to 2 egg yolk(s) and add it to fried rice along with veggies of choice…usually frozen mixed veggies. I would bet this site has a good healthy recipe for fried rice.5 stars

  63. I would love to try this. Would adding chia seeds be a good idea for good fiber or would interfere with the tast . Thank you

  64. I want to try to make these in a mini loaf pan (instead of muffins). How do you recommend modifying the baking temp/ length? Thanks!

    1. Hi Sam! While I have only tested the recipe is as I would think if using a loaf pan it is going to be thicker in nature so you’ll have to increase the cook time. The temperature should be the same. Enjoy!

  65. Going to make for Christmas Morning – have 10 people. I want to PREMAKE but reheat in bulk. Do you think putting them on tray in oven covered with foil at 325 for 25 minutes will fry them out? Ideas? I’d make casserole but we have many different pallets and good allergy’s. Muffins are easy to address this

    1. This is a great Christmas morning idea Tracy! Maybe put them in a muffin pan, put that pan in a larger roasting pan, then pour in some water. Cover with foil so they steam a bit as they reheat.

  66. Hi! I made these this morning, phenomenal! Instead of putting them in a muffin tin, I put it in a 9×13 pan and it came out looking amazing! I also added beans for some extra fiber.5 stars

  67. The recipe ingredients say feta, plus feta for the top. But I only see it going on top. Do you put feta inside the muffin as well?

    1. Hi Jen, great question. You will be sprinkling the 1/4 cup of feta evenly over the tops of the cups prior to baking. The muffins will rise some and absorbed the cheese. Then, when you are ready to serve, you can sprinkle a little more over the cups. Hope this helps and ENJOY!

  68. Great go-to recipe for breakfast or snacks when short on time! Full of flavor and protein. Can mix it up with whatever is on hand! Thanks5 stars

  69. Forgot to say that I’ve made them several times and currently have a batch in the oven. My husband tries to steal them…I freeze half then take them out in a couple days when I need more and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. Ready to go!5 stars

  70. I want to double this recipe and make it in casserole pan. What should I keep in mind to do that? What size pan should I use?5 stars

    1. Hi Leigh, it’s going to be similar to this healthy breakfast casserole: Hope you enjoy it!

    1. Hi Maria, it’s hard for me to know without being in the kitchen with you but they might of been over baked. How long did you leave it in? Oven temperatures can vary slightly so that might be the culprit. Also make sure to use the 6 eggs/4 whites ratio. This helps to keep them from getting spongy.

    1. Hi Pat, we’ve only tested the recipe as is, but it would change the consistency if you try adding the whole egg rather than the egg whites.

    1. Hi Pat! I think you could but you would need to defrost it and wring any remaining water out of it. If you give it a try, let us know how it goes!

  71. Thanks for another easy, very tasty recipe – and low-cal, high protein too. I’ve made them a couple of times now using silicon muffin cups in my air fryer for 12-14 minutes at 300°F (150°C).
    Freezing worked really well too. A winner all round.5 stars

  72. These are the BEST!! They’re so good and I love how much veggies are in them without you even noticing! Even my picky husband likes them and that’s saying ALOT!5 stars

    1. Hi Kennedy, I’ve only tested these muffins out in a muffin pan, so can’t say for sure. If you decide to experiment, I’d love to know how it goes!
