Ingredients

  • 1/2 dozen eggs
  • coconut oil for the muffin tin

Choose from any of the following:

  • kale chopped
  • baby spinach chopped
  • tomatoes diced
  • onions finely chopped
  • red bell peppers finely chopped
  • green peppers finely chopped
  • mushrooms finely chopped
  • goat cheese crumbled
  • basil finely chopped
  • mozzarella cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste (other seasonings too like oregano or garlic powder!)
  • fire roasted salsa for topping the eggs!

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a nonstick muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or melted coconut oil. Set aside.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Place 2-3 items from the list above into each tin. You can customize each muffin cup however you'd like! Pour the egg mixture on top, leaving 1/4" from the top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean for each frittata. Remove from oven. Use a knife to go around the edges and pop out the egg cups.
  • To reheat, simply place one egg muffin in the microwave for 35-45 seconds on HIGH or until warm. Enjoy!

Notes

Keep them all in an airtight container in the refrigerator or place each individual egg muffin cup in a resealable bag for an easy grab-and-go breakfast. Dispose after 6 days. 
You can also freeze the cooked egg muffins, once cooled, in a resealable bag for up to 3 months.
Please note: the calories below are for 1 egg without the add-ons since the recipe allows you to DIY these egg muffins.
