Broccoli Cheese Egg Muffins Recipe: Perfect for Breakfast & Meal Prepping by Ann Marie Patitucci
These broccoli cheese egg muffins are great for breakfast on the go and for meal prep, too! I feel good about eating them and feeding them to the kids because they’re both high in protein and filling (perfect for my son who is “so hungry” well before his school lunch time!). If you want to make them in advance, wrap them in plastic wrap, stick them in the fridge and when you’re ready to serve, just pop them in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.
I love when a recipe is customizable. This one definitely is! You can make so many variations of these egg muffins with whatever ingredients you have on hand or whatever vegetables you want to sneak in. See the additional ingredients list below for ideas.
