Eggs are a classic breakfast for both Paleo and non-Paleo eaters — whether they’re scrambled, in an omelette or served sunny side up — eggs are coveted by many breakfast lovers. Trade in your usual scrambled eggs for these convenient and cute muffin-sized egg cups. Fill the base with sauteed vegetables then cover with whipped eggs to hold the egg muffin together.
It can be difficult to eat vegetables with breakfast, but this recipe provides a classic omelet vegetable mix. You can vary up the vegetables by using different vegetables, like brussel sprouts or broccoli. Don’t be afraid to use pre-cooked, leftover vegetables from dinner the night before (there’s no need to cook them again, just add to the beaten eggs).
Egg muffins are a perfect breakfast to enjoy on the go – throw a couple into a bag and eat them on the way to work or after a tough workout. Plan ahead and make these over the weekend, so you’ll have a healthy breakfast on hand all week.
