Recipe Ideas and Tips for Egg Muffins
The base for the egg muffins is really simple so you can mix and match with different ingredients. Some ideas:
- Add in some veggies like tomatoes, spinach or mushrooms
- Add in different proteins like ham, bacon or shredded cheese to boost the protein even more
- Serve them as part of a breakfast sandwich with a toasted english muffin and cheese
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.
