Mornings can be hectic. Especially now that we are a couple of months into the school year and the excitement of the beginning of the school year has worn off. As you are running out the door you may find yourself grabbing something really easy for yourself and the kids but with no nutritional value. Or maybe you’re grabbing nothing at all! Want an easy breakfast idea? Try adding these easy egg bites to your weekly prep to add some nutrition and color to your mornings. Make starting your day a little bit easier and healthier!
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil up in a pan on med/low. Chop 1/2 orange bell pepper, 1/2 red bell pepper and 1/2 of an onion and add them all to the pan. Sautee until soft, then add chopped mushrooms until cooked through. If you are adding spinach, you can add a handful of spinach when you add the mushrooms. While that is cooking, crack 6 eggs and whisk together with 1/4 cup milk and a dash of salt and pepper. Add the veggies to the mix
Once the veggies are done. Grease a muffin tin with olive oil or avacado oil spray. Add the egg mixture to the tin. You can also add some cheese into each muffin if you desire. This will give you 12 egg bites when done.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until solid. Once cooled, store in an air tight container and refrigerate. Now you have breakfast for the week. My kids love them and I love that they aren’t eating food with preservatives and I can truly say I make my kids breakfast every day!
