Ingredients in Egg Muffins
- Eggs – I always buy large eggs

- Flour – I use all-purpose but gluten-free flour can be substituted
- Baking soda – Helps the eggs be nice and fluffy
- Spices – Salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder
- Green pepper – diced – and you can also use any color bell pepper and even add diced onions if you want.
- Bacon – I love turkey bacon but you can use any kind you like.
How to Make Egg Muffins
- Preheat oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a twelve-cup muffin pan by greasing it with nonstick cooking spray.
- Create egg mixture: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and Almond Breeze almond milk until smooth. Then mix in flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.
- Combine ingredients: Add green pepper and chopped bacon into your egg mixture, combining evenly.
- Bake: In your prepared muffin tray, pour the egg mixture into each cup equally. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Once done, allow the egg muffins to cool for five minutes before removal.
- Use sausage or make these vegetarian egg cups by omitting the bacon alltogether.
- Add onions or other vegetables, like mushrooms, asparagus, or broccoli.
Yes, egg muffins can be made ahead of time and frozen or refrigerated.
Yes! These make for the perfect grab-and-go breakfast because they can be frozen in sandwich bags.
Reheat your egg muffins in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate. If you’re reheating the egg muffins from frozen, heat them for 2 minutes. If the egg muffins are thawed, heat them up for 1 minute.
If your egg muffins are sticking to the pan, you may have forgotten to use cooking oil to grease the cups of the pan.
Egg muffins sometimes deflate because they were not beaten well enough or have cooled down and lost their structure. To keep your egg muffins from deflating, add a bit of flour and baking soda to your mixture.
Adding wet ingredients like tomatoes or onions can create too much moisture in the egg and make them soggy. Cooking the add-ins first is a good way to prevent unwanted moisture.
