You can also create endless variations with other delicious mixed-ins. Basil, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese combo give an awesome Italian flair. Sliced mushrooms with spicy sausage offer the most addicting kick.

If you are a vegetarian, you can do egg muffins without the meat. Sliced bell peppers and kale are one easy way to add superfood power to these egg muffins.

Regardless of your choice of mixed-ins, the base egg muffin recipe remains the same. Create the egg mixture, pour it into the muffin tins, and bake for up to 20 minutes. Once the top is golden and egg mixture is fully cooked, you can remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes to serve.

Once they cool off, you can either store them in the freezer, making them freezable breakfasts. Or you can keep them in the fridge for several days.
