How to Store or Freeze Chicken Sausage Egg Muffins

Egg muffins are great for meal prepping because they can either be stored in the refrigerator or frozen.

Storing in the Refrigerator

To store in the fridge, make sure the egg muffins are completely cooled (about an hour or two). Once cooled, place them in an airtight container. Egg muffins will last 4-5 days in the fridge.

Once you’re ready to reheat, place them on a microwave safe plate and microwave for about 45 seconds, or until warmed through.

Storing in the Freezer

To store in the freezer, make sure the muffins are completely cooled (about an hour to two). Once cooled, place in a freezer safe bag and seal. Egg muffins will last for 4-5 months.

Once you’re ready to eat, take them out of the freezer and place in a refrigerator for 12 hours to defrost.

When you’re ready to eat microwave them on a microwave-safe plate for about 45 seconds, or until warmed through.
