I think breakfast is my favorite meal! I could eat eggs any time of the day! I prepare them all different ways from omelets, over easy, runny, hard boiled and now in muffin form! My mornings are usually hectic (as most moms, right?!) So sitting down to a nice hot egg breakfast usually does not happen! My typical morning consists of me drinking my shake (after my morning workout & shower) and then proceed to get lunches ready for the kids. This is when I would make my eggs to bring to work too. However, this was taking up a lot of my precious time in the morning. I feel us mom’s need to always have a window of disaster in the morning time frame! Mom’s – you understand right? Unfinished homework, can’t find my favorite shirt, my hair is a mess, etc… So in saving time (and my sanity) I started to prep these babies on Sunday so I had them ready to go each morning before leaving for work. These are super simple and you can use any veggies that you like! This time I used fresh spinach, tomatoes, mushroom & onions. I sautéed them up with Trader Joes 21 Seasoning Salute and added them first into the muffin pan then I pour the egg mixture over about 3/4 way up. I used 12 eggs so it came to 12 muffins – perfect!

Now let’s talk eggs for a second. Yes, the kind of eggs that you purchase is super important. While I always promote organic, in this case I go for farm fresh. In the Winter months the farm by me is closed so I started to buy Vital Farms eggs and I have never looked back! They are just delicious and their yolks are a bright yellow/orange color. Just bursting with flavor and vitamins. I mean did you see!!
Their hens are free roaming all day! Each dozen eggs comes with a cute little cartoon card highlighting their farm and how they operate along with a recipe. Plus they spotlight a hen of the month and tell you a little about her! This month’s hen was Regal Rebecca who likes to roam free! Love it!
So set some time aside on your prep day and definitely make these! I paired mine with roasted sweet potatoes and a slice of bacon – all ready to heat back up once I got to work! Now I have just a little more time in the mornings (and less dishes) for any disasters that may arise!
