Egg Muffins Recipe:

Eggs are a breakfast favorite in our house – they are protein-packed and a great way to start your day. These are a fun twist on your regular scrambled eggs.

A Make-Ahead Breakfast!

These egg muffins are wonderful fresh out of the oven but they can also be made ahead and refrigerated up to 5 days or frozen (see freezing and reheating instructions below). We love a good make-ahead breakfast to jump-start our day. Some of our favorites make-ahead breakfasts are breakfast burritos, these Egg, Ham and Cheese Crepes or French Toast Casserole.

Fun Add-Ins To Try:

Once you have a good base, you can make all kinds of egg muffins based on what you have on hand. These also work really well with:

  • sliced cherry tomatoes
  • cooked sausage
  • sautéed mushrooms,
  • diced ham,
  • asparagus,
  • black olives,… the possibilities are endless!

How to Freeze & Re-heat Egg Muffins:

Cool egg muffins completely then cover and refrigerate up to 5 days or place muffins in a freezer bag and freeze up to 3 months.

To reheat: microwave frozen muffins uncovered for 80-90 seconds, or until hot. Microwave refrigerated muffins for 20-25 seconds.

How to Keep Egg Muffins from Sticking:

  • Ue a non-stick 12-count non-stick muffin tin (Amazon affiliate link)
  • Silicone muffin liners are best because they release the egg muffins easily, clean up quickly and you don’t need to grease them.
  • Avoid paper liners as they are difficult to remove from baked muffins.
  • If silicone liners are not available, generously spray muffin tin with cooking spray.

Calories: 148 kcal
Servings: 12 Egg Muffins

Ingredients

  • 6 oz bacon cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 small onion 1/2 cup finely chopped
  • 1 large or 2 small russet potatoes peeled
  • 4 oz fresh baby spinach 2 cups, coarsely chopped
  • 6 oz mild cheddar cheese (1 1/2 cup shredded), divided
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half or equal parts whipping cream and milk
  • 2 tsp Tabasco sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 375˚F. Oil a 12-count non-stick muffin tin, or preferably line with silicone muffin liners.

  2. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and sauté 6 oz bacon until browned (6-8 min). Transfer to a plate. Discard excess oil keeping 2-3 Tbsp in the pan. In the same pan, sauté finely chopped onion until softened (2 min).

  3. Meanwhile grate potato on the large holes of a box grater. Use your  hands to squeeze out as much water as you can from potatoes then pat dry with paper towels. Once onions are softened, add grated potato to the skillet with onions. Sauté stirring a few times until potatoes are golden and nearly cooked through (7 mins). Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together 8 eggs, 1/2 cup half and half and 2 tsp Tabasco sauce. Stir in sautéed potatoes, chopped spinach and 1 cup cheese.

  5. Distribute mixture evenly among a 12 count muffin tin. Sprinkle tops with bacon then top with remaining cheese. Bake at 375˚F for 22-23 min or until puffed and lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out fairly clean. Cool a few minutes in the pan then serve.

    These are delicious! They turned out great on the first try! I made them the night before a breakfast I was hosting and they re-heated well in the oven right before the event. The prep time took about 25 minutes. This includes cooking the bacon, grating the potatoes and cooking them, and mixing everything together. Unless you are using prepackaged hash browns I would set aside at least 50-60 minutes from start to finish.

    These are great make ahead breakfast bites. I made these yesterday and shared a few this morning with a friend. They were a definite hit. I used about a cup of “potatoes Brian” that I had on hand in the freezer. Good time to use up stuff on hand. I pre-fried and then cooled the potatoes before including in recipe. Today, I’m making 12 more, this time I won’t forget the spinach…lol

    Very tasty, and pretty, too. With the grating of the potato and cheese, the chopping of the onion and spinach, the separate cooking time for the bacon, onions, and potatoes, all of the prep work for me took much longer than the 12 minutes indicated on the recipe. Now that it’s cooked, though, it will be nice to have these ready-made, on-the-go breakfast bites. Time will be saved later, for sure!

      Hi Inna, I have not tested this without potatoes but one of our readers gave great feedback using cauliflower instead. I do love the idea of using cauliflower! I would probably use the same amount as the potatoes so roughly 1 1/2 cups of cauliflower cut into small florets. If you use more than that, it will overwhelm the muffin tin.

      Hi Staffney, I haven’t tried it without and I think if you omit the half and half, they would have a denser consistency but I do think it would still work. I’m not sure what else to recommend that’s non-dairy… Has anyone else tried this non-dairy?

    I am still curious about the answer to the potato question. Could not find the answer in comments but to save time I did want to know if I can use pre-made hash brown and if so, in what cup measurement ?? Anyone ?
    They have this shredded hash brown in a bag in the produce section of my grocery and I was gonna try using it

      Hi Linda, you can replace or omit. You can mix in a variety of different kinds of vegetables. I think it would work out even if you omitted that spinach. You could use finely sliced bell peppers and sauté them with the onions. You could do the same thing with chopped asparagus, or mushrooms would taste Great! There’s a lot of room for creativity with this recipe.

    These are so good! Did you know that doing egg muffins like this travel well too? They’re good for more than just a quick grab at home. Due to a gluten allergy I often make a batch to pop in the ice chest when we hit the road. The hotel chain we always stay at has free breakfast, so while the family enjoys their assorted hot breakfast offerings I can enjoy mine & know that at least at breakfast I’m not going to risk a cross contamination. Another plus is that thanks to a fridge & microwave being standard in our hotels I can enjoy my breakfast in the room without having to get up early enough to be ready to go downstairs to eat. lol

    I made these the other day but made a larger batch of 18 using 12 eggs, 3/4 cup half and half, 3 potatoes, and a little extra cheese. I didn’t have spinach on hand so just omitted it. They came out SO.GOOD! Going on my regular breakfast rotation from now on 😀

      Hi Odeida! Do you have double cream? It is very similar to whipping cream. One of our readers wrote “I didn’t have cream so I used milk and they were still delicious. Would be great for a brunch!!” I hope that helps!

    I make these too but if in a pinch I just add a spoonful of salsa and then you have onions, tomatoes and a little kick of spice..plus cheese and whatever leftover meat if there is any (but bacon goes quick in my house)

    I’m not big on Tobasco, but I would add Hatch green chile instead. It is carried in frozen bricks in several grocery stores. I defrost it until it still has ice crystals and spoon into sandwich bag sized bags and refreeze for small easily used portions to pull out and use as desired. I use them in eggs frequently!

    Hi, Natasha! Being one to “think outside the box”, I have a suggestion for you to use for your potatoes. I use this for my shredded zucchini all the time. I line my salad spinner with paper towels. Bingo! All the water is gone instantly! Plus you don’t have to dirty kitchen towels in the process.
    One other point, could one use frozen hash browns to make this a bit quicker?

    Natasha, here is a variation on your theme that I created. Prep? What prep? Throw it all in a bowl, mix it up, pop it into you well greased muffin tin and bake for 20-25 minutes. So light and fluffy, freezes and reheats beautifully.

    8 eggs, beaten
    1/3 cup diced onion
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1 cup cottage cheese
    1 cup diced ham
    1 can ro-tel tomatoes with green chilies, drained and rinsed
    1 cup buttermilk pancake mix

    These little gems are delicious. We ate them, right out of the oven; then microwaved a couple, today, from the refrigerator. I froze the remainder, and have no doubt they’ll be as great, when thawed! I used ham, instead of bacon as that’s what I had. I don’t know about the recipe “going together quickly,” as it took me longer than I expected to grate the cheese, chop and fry the ham(bacon), then onions, then potatoes. (Yes, I used my Cuisinart!) But, I didn’t want to mix everything together in the skillet. I had a handful of spinach, so chopped that, too. I buttered the muffin cups, and the muffins released immediately. (That may have something to do with my “USA Pan Bakeware” which is heavy duty and rarely gives me problems with anything sticking.) Great recipe, especially the concept of making them ahead, for overnight guests or busy mornings!

    I made these exactly as the recipe stated, and thought I’d add my two bits. 😉

    Loved these! I used parchment paper muffin liners. They didn’t stick, but they were a bit oily/greasy on the bottom. I soaked it up with paper towels and removed all the liners. I wonder if anyone else had this problem? I might try the lotus sized parchment paper liners next time so that they are a bit bigger and not overflowing. 🤔

    My kids did not find them spicey at all. I would actually add more Tabasco next time!

    Thanks for a great recipe! Perfect for the kids lunch box.

      Hi Rose, I tried the paper liners and they did not work well. The egg sticks to paper pretty badly. If you don’t have the silicone cups, it’s best to grease a non-stick muffin tin and bake directly in the muffin tin then slide a plastic knife around the muffin to help release it.

      I agree! I love that they are freezer and refrigerator friendly and I especially love that my son calls this one of his favorite recipes because he’s the harder one to feed in the morning! 😉

    I have a silly question.. If I put them in he freezer.. do I cook it first? And to defrost do I just pop them in the oven?

      Hi Stacey, good question! 🙂 Cook them first then cool to room temperature and freeze them. Pop them in the oven to reheat or the microwave, but I prefer the oven 🙂
