There’s nothing wrong with shoving a store-bought granola bar in your kids hand as you rush them out the door—we’ve all been there.

Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins with Spinach: A Tutorial.

To be quite honest, just eggs whisked with milk, and poured into spinach-filled muffin tins would be a little on the bland side. So! We’ve spruced our breakfast egg muffin recipe up with a few of our favorite ultra-savory flavor bombs—crumbly, salty feta cheese and umami-rich sun-dried tomatoes. Start with our formula for making egg muffin cups with spinach, and add whatever goodies you think make them taste great! Obviously we’re partial to the combo of feta and sun-dried tomato, but this is definitely a place where you can let your creative juices flow.

How to Make Egg Muffins That Are As Delicious As They Are Healthy

Like so many of our most trusty recipes, this egg muffin recipe can be thought of as more of a guideline or formula than a strict, set-in-stone recipe. Here’s how to make egg muffins: 

  • Whisk the eggs and milk together. Whole milk, 2%, even half-and-half would work here—you just want a little liquid to help the eggs pour easily into the muffin tin. 
  • Prep your fillings! Chop the spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and crumble the feta cheese. Try to chop things super-finely, because a muffin tin cup is actually quite small, and the smaller your egg muffin filling is, the easier it’ll be to load into the egg muffin cups. 
  • Fill! Evenly sprinkle your chopped fillings among the muffin tin cups, and then pour in the egg and milk mixture—a ladle or liquid measuring cup is really helpful for this step, which can get messy. 
  • Bake! Watch them closely, because they bake quickly and over-baked egg muffins are no fun.  Once they’re baked and cooled, the feta-spinach breakfast egg muffins will keep for at least five days.

Can You Freeze Egg Muffins?

Yes! And it’s so easy to double this recipe, you might as well do that and plan to freeze half of what you make—that way you’ve got breakfast handled for two weeks instead of one! Have you ever felt more like a domestic god or goddess?! Doubt it. Here’s how to freeze our easy breakfast egg muffins: 

  1. Let them cool to room temperature. 
  2. Space the cooled spinach and feta egg muffins on a lined baking sheet, and pop them in the freezer until they’re frozen through. 
  3. Transfer to a zipper-top bag, seal and store in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them! 
  4. To re-heat: just pop a frozen egg muffin in the microwave and zap for 30 seconds to a minute until it’s warmed through.
