I love making a batch of these easy make-ahead, high-protein Broccoli and Cheese Egg Muffins for meal prep or breakfast on the go.
Broccoli and Cheese Egg Muffins
These egg muffins are a great way to start the morning because they are high in protein, taste great and satisfy me until lunch. You can fill them with any combination of vegetables, cheese and meats you like. I refrigerate them, then pop them in the microwave for one minute when I need a quick breakfast. I also make egg white muffins if you want something leaner.
You can make these egg muffin cups so many different ways with whatever you have hanging around in your refrigerator. Here are some other suggestions.
Egg Muffin Variations:
- Eggs: I usually like to combine egg whites with whole eggs, but if you rather use egg whites, that is fine too.
- Green Eggs and Ham – Add frozen spinach, chopped scallions, and ham.
- Kale – Add chopped onions and chopped fresh baby kale.
- Mushrooms and Cheese – sliced mushrooms and Swiss cheese.
- Or try these Loaded Egg Muffins.
How Long Do Egg Muffins Last In The Fridge?
You can store egg muffins in the refrigerate for up to 5 days. To heat up, microwave in 30-second intervals until heated through.
