Egg Muffin Ingredients

I love this fresh and colorful ingredient list. Eggs, veggies, and of course…cheese! I also love that the ingredients are BASIC! We always have these ingredients on hand.

To make muffin tin eggs, you will need the following ingredients!

  • Eggs
  • Milk (use your favorite)
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Chopped spinach
  • Shredded cheese
  • Chopped green onions
  • Garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and black pepper

Make Them Your Own

You can change up the ingredients in this egg muffin cup recipe to make it your own! All of your favorite breakfast flavors can be incorporated.

  • Use kale or arugula instead of spinach.
  • I like to use shredded white cheddar cheese, but mozzarella, havarti, feta, and regular cheddar, and goat cheese are all good options. 
  • Add sausage or bacon!
  • Add more veggies! Mushrooms, bell peppers, and broccoli are super tasty additions.
  • I like to serve the egg muffins with avocado, salsa, and herbs! You can also add a few drops of hot sauce if you want a little heat!

How to Make Egg Muffins

These Egg Muffins are a snap to make! Mix, pour, and bake. Here’s the break down:

  • We’ll start with some prep work. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a muffin tin with nonstick spray. Make sure you grease the pan well so the egg muffins don’t stick.
  • Crack the eggs into a large bowl and give them a good whisk. This is a great step for kids to help with; just make sure they don’t drop any egg shells into the bowl!
  • Whisk in the milk, then add the veggies and cheese. Gently stir it with a spoon or spatula.
  • Pour the mixture evenly into the muffin tin and top each one off with a little sprinkle of cheese (another good step for kids to do!).
  • Pop them in the oven for 20-25 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when the eggs are cooked through and there’s a little browning around the edges.
  • Pull them out and let them cool for 5 minutes or so before loosening each muffin with a knife. Now they’re ready to serve!
  • Garnish with your favorite toppings!

How to Store and Reheat

Once completely cooled, you can store your the egg muffin cups in a container in the refrigerator for up to three days . Reheat them in the microwave for 30 seconds for a quick and easy breakfast!

You can also freeze the egg muffins. Place cooled muffins in a freezer container or bag so they stay fresh. Freeze for up to three months. Reheat frozen egg muffins for one to two minutes in the microwave.

    I love almost all the recipes on this site, but this was a miss. The flavors were off– I think it called for too much spinach, but I’m not sure the components worked together overall. I greased the muffin tin very well but it was a nightmare to clean. The freezability and small portions of this recipe were so appealing. Too bad! We love many others– the rigatoni with sausage is one of my boys’ most requested recipes 🙂

    I made half the batch as I didn’t have many eggs and these came out great! I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top as well. I had a lot of trouble getting them out of the muffin tin despite a heavy coating of nonstick spray. Has anyone tried using those silicone muffin cups?

    1. Yes, the silicon muffin cups are awesome!!
      They are available from Amazon.
      Silicon cups can be used for muffins, cupcakes, crustless quiche, etc.
      You can spray the silicon cups with Pam, but it wasn’t necessary when I made muffins.
      Also a muffin tin is not required. The silicon cups stand up without being in a muffin pan.
      Place the silicon cups directly on a baking sheet and place in the oven.
      Silicon cups are microwave, freezer, and oven safe (up to 445 degrees).
      Let the silicon cups stand to cool for 5 minutes after cooking. Muffins will pop out.
      Cleaning the silicon cups is easy. Just place them in wash soapy water.
      Silicon cups cans be turned inside out to wash. Rub with fingers.
      When I cooked egg muffins, there was no residue left in the silicon cups.

    I just made these and yes, it was a pain getting these out of my well greased non-stick muffin tin so I just ordered a silicone one from Amazon. I did modify the recipe a bit: I used red onion instead of green and I sautéed them first before adding to mixture. I also use chard from my garden instead of spinach and again, sautéed it first. I made these for my rancher husband so I added in breakfast sausage that I precooked and crumbled in. He takes two every morning and loves them. Super great time saver during harvest. Another winner Maria, thanks!

  4. Can the paper cupcake liners be used with these? I make breakfast occasionally for a local group that feeds homeless folks (sometimes 100+). This looks like a nice option to casseroles but I don’t have the time or energy to wash a muffin tin after every use.
