Okay, so I will preface this statement to say that these Baked Egg Muffins need to be made ahead of time. If you’re on board the meal prep bandwagon, you’ll know that healthy eating usually means having foods pre-made and ready to go for you when you need them.
Breakfast is certainly no exception. I’ll show you exactly how to make these delicious protein-packed, healthy Ham & Veggie Baked Egg Cups on the weekend, and have them ready to go for breakfast on your busy weekday mornings.
Here’s how these super-easy Ham & Veggie Baked Egg Cups are made:
What ingredients do I need for baked egg muffins?
These baked egg muffins include broccoli, bell pepper, red onion, diced ham (extra lean), and eggs. I also sprinkle on a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese. And when I say a little bit, I mean just a few shreds. If you are following Whole30 or Keto, feel free to omit the cheese, and you’ll be on plan!
Dice your ham, and veggies, and whisk together the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper to your liking. Your eggs will then be ready to go into the baking cups.
How do I make baked egg cups?
You will see in the photos that I’m using silicone baking cups. These bake beautifully! They make it so easy for the eggs to pop right out of the cups – no greasy baking spray, no buttering a muffin tin. Simply place the cups into the muffin tin and your set!
Add the diced ham, and veggies to each cup. I did approximately a 1/2 tablespoon of each: ham, broccoli, onion & pepper.
Pour the whisked eggs over the top of the ham & veggies
In a mixing bowl, whisk together a dozen eggs. Add a bit of salt and pepper to your liking. Once the eggs are whisked together well, pour the eggs over the top of the filling in each cup.
Add a sprinkle of cheese to the baked egg cups – OPTIONAL!
To the top of the eggs and filling, add a sprinkling (maybe a half tablespoon) of shredded cheddar cheese. As you can see from the photo above, I just add a few shreds of cheese – nothing excessive.
To keep things on the healthier side, feel free to use low-fat cheese, or leave out the cheese entirely. Omitting the cheese makes the recipe Whole30 and Keto-friendly!
How long do I bake egg muffins?
Once you have everything in the cups, bake the eggs for 16-18 minutes at 375 degrees or until the eggs are set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before eating. If you are meal prepping these for later: let the egg muffins cool to room temperature. Place in resealable containers and refrigerate.
To reheat in the morning: place two egg muffins on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 45-60 seconds on high. Enjoy right away!
