What Makes Egg Bites So Good?
Egg bites, also known as egg muffins or egg cups, are great for many reasons. They are:
- Extremely versatile – If sausage and kale are not your “things”, opt for your favorite protein and vegetables, and you will still end up with some mighty good egg bites.
- Easy to prepare – A little sautéing, a little whisking and pour the whole thing into a muffin tin.
- Nutritious – These breakfast bites are exactly what your body needs in the morning, they are high in protein and low in carbs, making them perfect to fuel the day ahead.
Make ahead, Bake ahead…
Making these egg bites ahead of time, is a great way to meal prep for the upcoming week. You can eat them cold, but they are infinitely better heated up in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, until warmed through.
Freeze Them – Yes, they are also great frozen. Simply, make them as directed. Once they have cooled down, freeze them in a ziplock bag or air-tight container, for up to 3 months. They take approximately 60-90 seconds to reheat from frozen.
