A filling and nutritious breakfast for your baby, toddler, and kids that are perfect for on-the-go eating. They can even be frozen and reheated for a quick breakfast. Great for Baby-Led Weaning!
Servings: 12 muffins
Egg Muffin Base
- 7 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk of choice, optional
- salt and pepper, to taste
Broccoli + Cheddar Add-Ins
- 2/3 cup broccoli, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup baby spinach, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup red pepper, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup feta, crumbled
Picky Eater Add-Ins
- 1/2 cup quinoa cooked and cooled
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese, I used a combination of swiss, cheddar and gruyere, but you can use whichever cheeses you prefer
- 1 cup veggies of your choice, finely chopped. I used a combination of mushrooms, red peppers, green peppers, yellow peppers and spinach. But any combination of veggies you like will work.
- 4 strips bacon cooked and finely chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Heavily spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. To make getting the egg cups out easier, I have found that a silicone muffin tin or silicone muffin inserts help tremendously with the eggs not getting stuck.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper until well combined.
Evenly distribute the add-in ingredients into each muffin cup.
Evenly pour the egg mixture into each muffin cup until roughly 2/3 full. If using the silicon muffin tin, place the silicon tin onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until eggs have firmed and top is brown and bubbly.
Age: from 10 months and up
Yield: 12 egg cups
Storage: store in an air-tight container in fridge for 3 days or in freezer for 3 months. To freeze, wrap the egg cups individually in plastic wrap and then freeze. To re-heat, unwrap egg cup, place on a plate and microwave in 30 second increments until warm.
Veggie and Egg Tip: I found that the above veggie amounts work great for my family, but if you want to add less broccoli and more cheese (for those picky kids) then go for it. You can add as much or as little veggies as you want in this recipe, just note that if you add less veggies and cheese then you will probably have to add in one or two more eggs.
