Eggs are a delicious and nutritious. One large egg has 6 grams of high-quality protein AND nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories. Starting your day with a delicious egg recipe is a great idea! These muffin tin baked eggs are so delicious, everyone will want you to make them again and again!

If you are having brunch or entertaining out of town guests in the morning, this is the perfect recipe to really impress everyone (and it’s easy…which I love!). You can change the meat inside for anything you prefer. Sausage or turkey bacon perhaps? They’ll still be irresistible. Eggs are my go-to for breakfast for the whole family, but they are also the perfect snack and a great addition to lunch or dinner on busy weekday nights.
Grab them with your hands as you rush out the door, or serve them as part of a beautiful sit down breakfast alongside some fresh fruit, toast, and orange juice. Egg cups are so EASY to bake and they are quite filling too! School mornings are often the most stressful time of the day, so having some grab and go muffin tin eggs prepared in advance has really helped us! My kids love a warm cooked breakfast and and this egg recipe allows our mornings to run a bit more smoothly as we head off to school.
How Do You Make Eggs in a Muffin Tin?
These eggs are a mix between traditional scrambled eggs and and omelets. Except, rather than cooking them on the stovetop, you bake them in the oven and the muffin tin does all of the hard work for you. Once they are done baking, the egg cups slide right out of the tin, making them simple to serve and even easier to clean up. The average American eats 276 eggs a year, so why not try some new recipes, especially during this busy and exciting time of the year!
