Because meal planning is less than one of my favorite things to do, I typically stick to the basics for breakfast and lunch. I often serve my girls their usual of bananas & cereal for breakfast and peanut butter toast & fruit for lunch. While I like not having to plan out breakfast and lunch, I finally decided that I should try and mix it up.

Pepperoni and Spinach Egg Muffins breakfast

They both (usually…my 1.5 year old is unpredictable with her eating) enjoy eggs and I like quick and easy breakfasts every morning. The egg muffin is the perfect solution. Why?

  • Egg muffins are quick to prepare
  • Egg muffins are cheap to make
  • Egg muffins are the perfect way to use up extra meat and veggies
  • Egg muffins are an easy way to add protein into their diets
  • Egg muffins reheat beautifully
  • And…I also enjoy eating them

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat eggs until smooth. Mix in milk and shredded cheese.

Pour egg mixture (approximately 1/4 cup each) into muffin cups. Add spinach and pepperoni to each muffin cup. Stir in if desired.

You can try out most other meats and veggies you may have on hand. I have also used bacon and diced ham instead of pepperoni.

You can also mix all the ingredients before pouring into the muffin cups. I prefer to add in the spinach and pepperoni separately, as it gives me the option to make some muffins with more veggies and meat than others. My 1.5 year old is such a picky eater that I put less meat and spinach in her egg muffins and much more in mine. Each time I make them, I add more meat and spinach to hers…so I’m trying to gradually get her used to more of the meat and veggies!

  1. Yum! Thank for sharing your recipe! I’m going to make some for my husband. He is starting a new job that is two hours away. We are in the process of finding a house closer, but until then I’m sure he’ll appreciate ate a quick, nutritious breakfast on the go! Thanks, again, for sharing. Pinning this to come back to!

  2. These look wonderful! Idiot alert- is there batter of any kind in here or the muffin is egg? I read and re-read the recipe and may be having a dumb moment. I am going on very little sleep so that is my excuse :-)

  3. Yum! This is one of my husband’s favorites. I love to chop up and put in any random veggies I can find in my fridge to make these on a Sunday night and then he microwaves them each morning throughout the week. Such a great recipe/idea!
