Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins

Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins – Great for Meal Prep!

December 4, 2020

Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins are packed with protein for a healthy, portable breakfast or snack that will keep you going all morning.

These easy Egg Muffins with broccoli and cheddar cheese are a great make-ahead breakfast, lunch, and snack choice. They are freezer-friendly and can be eaten on their own or used for a quick breakfast sandwich.

Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins have been part of our breakfast routine for years now and make the best on-the-go healthy breakfast. I have been making all kinds of egg muffins for years but recently realized I have shared the one that I make most often on the blog, these ones packed with broccoli, cheddar cheese, and green onions. I love having a batch in the fridge for a quick protein-packed snack or breakfast.

The other thing I love about these muffins is how easy they are to make. Whisk together some eggs, toss in some cooked broccoli and cheese, and pop them in the oven for about 12 minutes. That's it. They really couldn't get any easier and are a great recipe to make with your kids since nothing is more fun than cracking eggs and whisking. It's also a great way to get your kids to eat eggs and broccoli. Something about transforming it into a portable muffin makes all the difference.
