These healthy veggie egg muffins are the perfect breakfast or snack, plus freezer and kid-friendly. Add any of your favorite veggies or try this combo of spinach, feta, tomatoes, and extra egg whites for high protein.
3/4cupfinely diced red bell pepperabout 1 small pepper
3/4cupfinely diced green bell pepperabout 1 small pepper
3/4cupquartered cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, about 1 cup whole tomatoes
4large egg whites
Pinchground black pepperor cayenne pepper if you like a little kick!
1/4cupcrumbled feta cheeseplus additional to sprinkle on top
Optional toppings: avocadosalsa, 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.
