Quick & Reheatable Egg Muffins

For a while, I've been trying to think of something to add to my husband's morning breakfast repertoire. He usually has cereal with yogurt each morning. This is nice, but I feel like it'd get a bit boring after a while. He gets up earlier than me, and usually sleeps as late as possible, so it had to be something fast and super easy. Last week, stumbled across a recipe that inspired what I've done below.

For this one, I chose to go with a spinach, feta, mushroom and bacon mix. Basically anything that makes up your favorite omelet can be used though -- just make sure it's cooked through.


I'm not one for keeping track of very specific recipes... I tend to just do what looks right. In this case, I used 10 whole eggs, a couple handfuls of spinach, a few mushrooms, a bunch of cubes of feta cheese, and a reasonable portion of vegetarian bacon. If it had been real bacon, I'd have likely pre-cooked it ahead of time, but with this kind only requiring minimal cooking to begin with, I just tossed it in, straight from the fridge.


After mixing it up well, I poured it into the muffin tin and put it in the oven at 175C (350F) for 25 minutes.


After about 15, I checked to make sure nothing was burning up or anything crazy (they look a bit strange as they rise, but all was well) and let it continue on for the remaining 10 minutes.


After taking them out and letting them cool off a bit, I packed them up into some glass jars that I'd tossed in the dishwasher after we'd used up all the peanut butter that came in them -- perfect for removing the top and tossing in the microwave early in the morning!

And there you have it! They are super easy for me to make and even easier for him to reheat in the morning. I have the feeling this is going to become a pretty regular staple for us.

  1. Looks good! Have you guys tried Fil? I do not care for it but Fredrik eats it with muesli and it comes it tons of different flavors so you can change it up in the morning.

  2. We have tried that, but neither of us were fans. We've only had the normal flavor as far as I know though, so maybe I'll try another kind some time.

  3. Another thing that Fredrik does with it is put it over boiled potatoes when we have fish sticks!

  4. That's an interesting one... I'd have gone with tartar sauce!

  7. Ooh, these look good. I think I'll have to see if my devil oven will cooperate with these - we love egg sandwich things!
