Easy Weekend Egg Muffins

I love the versatility of eggs. There are numerous ways to prepare them and anything goes! From adding them raw in protein shakes, to a variety of cooked possibilities, they are the ultimate food that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as snacks.

 

 

But, taking the time in the morning to prepare egg recipes that the whole family will enjoy can be challenging. So in an effort to simplify the morning chaos, I like making these egg muffins to accommodate everyone’s egg preferences.

Here’s how you can make them too.

 

Ingredients

♦ 6 eggs

♦ 1/2 cup frozen hashbrowns (cubed)

♦ 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

♦ 1/2 cup chopped ham

♦ Grated cheddar cheese

♦ Salt & pepper to taste
