Mini Egg Muffins

Posted by on Oct 29, 2020 in blog

In times when the weather and the news are bleak, we have been turning to coming together as a family over mealtimes to reconnect and find peace. Sometimes, though, I would prefer to enjoy the time together without all of the work! So I made a batch of these mini egg muffins to enjoy in the mornings together over coffee. 

These take about 30 minutes to make a full batch, but they last all week in the fridge and just need a quick warmup (15-20 seconds) before eating! The bite-size makes them fun for all ages and I came up with a variety of flavors so everyone can enjoy their favorites.

Enjoy these on e-learning mornings, weekend mornings, for a hearty afternoon snack…it doesn’t matter! Let us know which variety is your favorite.

Enjoy!
