Easy Egg Muffins Are The Perfect Solution For Hectic Mornings

A prepare-ahead breakfast the whole family loves

Most mornings in our house are hectic trying to get everyone up, dressed, fed, and out the door.  

One of my family's favorite morning go-to breakfasts that hit the needed quick, nutritious, and delicious trifecta? 

Egg muffins.

Egg muffins are super easy to make and last us all week. 

These egg muffins can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Simply warm them up in the microwave for 30 seconds, and you're ready to eat. 

In a pinch, you can even make egg muffins a grab-and-go breakfast. As my kids know, you can eat them on the way to the bus stop, and as I know, you can eat them in the car on the way to work. 

Egg muffins are also great to bring for a brunch get-together!
