These Mini Egg Muffins with Bacon and Cheddar are the perfect make-ahead breakfast! Pop them in the freezer and reheat in a few seconds for breakfast on the go.
My son is a serious sleepyhead, and I still hesitate to wake him up most mornings. Although he's not a baby any longer, the phrase "never wake a sleeping baby" is permanently lodged in my brain! Lucky for me, he wakes up hungry and loves homemade breakfast like these Mini Egg Muffins!
Because of this, breakfast is typically a rushed state during the week. I found myself resorting to prepackaged foods for quick breakfasts, until I began experimenting with freezer cooking.
Freezer cooking for breakfast is an absolute godsend. I know that my son is eating healthy, homemade food. I typically defrost 1-2 egg muffins in the microwave, and cut up fresh fruit.
I add in pancakes, muffins, or french toast sticks, also from the freezer. A homemade, healthy breakfast in less than a minute and no dishes to clean before you head out the door!
I love using my Wilton Mini Muffin Pan from Amazon! Mini sized muffins cook up quickly, and more importantly, reheat from frozen lightening fast.
I did quite a bit of experimenting with these egg muffins, and this is the bacon and cheese recipe is my favorite. But, the fillings can be very versatile.
You can substitute chopped deli ham or turkey, different types of cheese, and add whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. Our favorite is bacon and cheddar!
These are ready in less than 15 minutes, and will keep in the freezer for 2-3 months.
