Easy Peasy Breakfast
Ham and Cheese Egg Muffins are my favorite! They’re bite-sized, no fuss, and super easy. You know when you’re running out the door and you have nothing healthy for breakfast? Maybe all you can get is a slice of toast, but you really need some protein and something substantial to keep you going? Well, these are mini muffins are perfect!!!! They’re packed with healthy fats and protein, so you can make it through the morning until you have time for a real meal.
One of my favorite things to do for breakfast with this recipe is to make it ahead of time, so that I don’t have to worry about breakfast during the week. I make a big batch, then leave them in the fridge, or even freeze them! Then I pop a few into the toaster oven or microwave when I’m ready to eat to warm them up. There’s no work, no mess, and it really couldn’t be easier. I made the recipe with simplicity in mind – they only take 5 minutes to prep and few ingredients. So what are you waiting for?!
