HOW DO YOU MAKE HAM AND CHEESE EGG MUFFINS?
Chop up your favorite combo of veggies and proteins and mix until combined.
Divide evenly among muffin cups (about 1/2 – 2/3 cups full) and add chopped ham and shredded cheese.
I like lining my muffin tin with these silicone liners since they are guaranteed to pop out easily without sticking. If you don’t have silicone liners, be sure to grease the muffin tins with a non-stick cooking spray.
Pop these in the oven at 400 F and once cooled, you can store them in resealable bags or glass containers. Keep them in the fridge (or freezer) and every morning, heat one up in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. Breakfast is ready to go!
With a batch of these tasty ham and cheese egg muffins, you’ve got a healthy breakfast when you’re on the run each morning.
