About the Ingredients:

  • Additional Ingredient Ideas:
    • onions: green, purple or white

Filling the muffin cups:

This recipe will fill a 12 cup muffin pan. I like to use a silicone mold so that the cooked bites pop right out of it with ease. Add the egg mixture to the cups, dividing it evenly between them. Then add any additional ingredients you want. You might notice that light ingredients like spinach and green onion float to the top, this is nothing to be concerned about.

How to Freeze Egg Bites:

Egg bites are SO SIMPLE to freeze. Make a batch and freeze them for breakfast or snacking all week long. To do this, after the egg bites have cooked, let them rest in the muffin pan for about 5 minutes, then pop them out and place them on to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Put the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze overnight. Once the egg bites have frozen, transfer them to a ziplock bag.

Great for meal prep!

Freezing egg bites is a great way to meal prep for the week. With just a little prep work you can have delicious and healthy breakfasts or snacks all week long.

Thawing and Reheating Egg Bites:

When you want one (or two or more), take the frozen egg bites out of the freezer, put them on a plate and microwave for 1 minute, 15 seconds…make sure to flip them halfway through.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use a cooking spray: If you want to get these egg bites out of the pan, make sure to use a cooking spray to prep the pan before you pour in the egg mixture. Or else they will stick, trust me.
  • About the muffin pan: I like to use a silicone mold (muffin pan) for these egg bites because of how easy it is to pop the cooked bites right out. You can use a muffin tin, but make sure to grease the pan really well so you can scoop the bites out.
  • Don’t worry if ingredients float to the top. You will notice that light ingredients like spinach or green onion might float to the tops of the egg bites while they’re baking. Nothing to worry about.
  • Leftovers: If you’re not planning to freeze any leftovers, you can keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I hope you enjoy this egg bite recipe as much as we do!
