Recipe Notes

  • The cheddar cheese could be swapped with your favorite cheese, such as Parmesan. 
  • To change it up, you could add in another vegetable or some fresh minced garlic.
  • Keep leftover egg muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make them:

  1. Whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, if desired. 
  2. Fill muffin tins lined with baking liners or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray about two-thirds full with the batter. Sprinkle the tops with additional cheddar cheese, if desired. 
  3. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked through and set.
