Twas the night before school, and all through the house, the Mommies did scurry, to search for a blouse… To pick out clothes, for herself and the kids… Laid out to go, nails are all trimmed, and hair washed to begin… But wait,
she did wonder, what will we eat for breakfast, when we cannot saunter? Ah ha! She thought to herself, and a smile did glean wide across her face.

Egg muffins to go, we will make in hurry, and heat them up in the morning, while the little feet scurry. Now the children are nestled all snug in their beds, and Mommy, with a glass of wine, can rest her pretty head.

So that’s basically what happened… The day before school I got this brilliant idea to try making these Egg Muffins. Now I had been busy around the house all day, and Hey Daddy, was doing much of the child minding. So when I told him that I now wanted to go make something in the kitchen, which translates to: “Can you keep watching the kids?”, he gave me the “Really?!” eyes. But when I told him what I wanted to make, and how these Egg Muffins could be great for us in the mornings, he begrudgingly accepted.

Easy egg muffins: Simply combine 6 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, salt and pepper, 1 cup of shredded cheese and any of your favourite add-ins, like peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, bacon, sausage, more cheese…Mmmmm…cheese… Scoop into muffins trays, greased with butter and bake in a 350° oven for 15-20 minutes.

Kid Friendly

Like all things that I make, I usually make a more kid friendly version first. So I made the basic egg, milk and cheese mixture, poured some into the muffin tray, then added onions and peppers to make the rest. I even tried sneaking just a few peppers into the plain muffins, but that pepper was spotted a mile away!

Bagels and cereals can get boring really quick. These Egg Muffins are ready faster than a bagel, when you make a batch for the week. They didn’t end up lasting for the whole week though, because they were so delicious! You can heat them and eat it at home, or heat them to go! Or eat them cold, totally up to you. These Egg Muffins are definitely a quick trick to get some much needed protein in the morning, to fuel your day and your little one’s day of learning.

Protein helps you feel fuller, longer and provides the energy needed to better balance blood sugars. If you carb load in the morning, you may find you get hungry sooner and may even crash, because your blood sugars spike and then drop, as the carbs are more quickly processed by your body.
