Easy Egg Bites

· · · · ·

This egg bites recipe is ultra simple to make, and you can include a variety of add-ins to customize them to your taste. Egg bites are a yummy breakfast, they make a tasty snack, and they’re easy to store to enjoy throughout the week!

One of my latest favourite breakfasts and snacks are these tasty egg bites that are so simple to make and honestly so yummy. I usually make a dozen or two every Sunday, and then I refrigerate them for easy re-heating and snacking throughout the week. My natural tendencies are to grab something sugary or bready for a snack, so having things like these, some cut up fruit and some veggies has really helped steer me in a different direction when I’m hungry.

Ingredients

  • eggs
  • salt pepper
  • ham, green onions and grated cheddar cheese, or…
  • cooked & crumbled bacon, diced spinach and cheddar cheese

See recipe card for quantities.

Instructions

Chop up the ingredients you want to add to the egg muffins. We like either ham, green onions and grated cheddar cheese or cooked & crumbled bacon, diced spinach and cheddar cheese. Put the filler ingredients into greased muffin tins – the amount is up to you. I generally fill the muffins cups about ⅓ full.

Pour beaten eggs seasoned with salt & pepper into the muffin tins (I fill them about ⅔ full; usually one egg per muffin). Stir each egg muffin a little bit to distribute the fillings.

Bake the egg muffins at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.

These can be stored in the fridge for about a week and reheated in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds.

Hint: Make a couple dozen egg bites with two or three different variations to keep your breakfasts interesting throughout the week!

Substitutions

  • Eggs – instead of eggs, use egg whites
  • Cheddar cheese – instead of cheddar cheese, use your favourite medium hardness cheese

Egg Bites Recipe Variations

  • For a veggie-packed egg bite, add chopped spinach, diced onions and diced red peppers
  • For a meat lovers egg bite, add chopped bacon and crumbled pre-cooked sausage with your favourite diced veggies

Equipment

I like to use silicone muffin pans to make these easy to pop out after they’re baked.

Storage

You can store cooked egg bites in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to a month.
