Make Ahead Egg Bites

There are so many wonderful things about these Make Ahead Egg Bites. You can make lots of different kinds all at the same time. They travel very well, so you can make them the night before and eat them for breakfast on the way to school or work. You can also freeze them so they are great for making ahead for camping trips. And they are super – SUPER – easy to make!

I use this pan from Pampered Chef called the Brownie Bites Pan. It is so perfect for this recipe but also so much more. But if you don’t have this pan – don’t despair – you can use a regular cupcake/muffin pan.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400F. Start with a dozen eggs (mine are from my backyard chickens – you don’t have to use brown eggs, if you prefer white). Crack them all into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Add in 1 tsp Sea Salt and 1 tsp Black Pepper.

Step 2: Evenly divide the mixed eggs into the your Bites or Muffin pan. You want to be sure not fill each space more than half way – once you add the mix-ins it will be full.

Step 2: Fill the pan with eggs

Step 3: Pick your mix-ins. You can make the whole pan the same, or make every single bite different. I usually like to make 3 varieties (resulting in 4 each). You can really use just about anything. I try to do a cheese, a veggie and then either a meat or second veggie. For this batch I went with 1) Bacon Jalapeno Cheddar, 2) Swiss Onion Ham and 3) Mozzarella Spinach Sweet Pepper.

Step 4: Add a few pinches of each mix-in to each bite/muffin slot. Them use a fork to combine it a little.

Step 5: Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. You will be able to see which slots you over filled – but they will all be tasty I promise!

Step 6: Remove to a cooling rack. If eating right away – serve it up! If saving for the next day, let cool and then put in a storage contain and into the fridge. You can reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds. If you are planning to freeze them for a later date, let them cool completely then place in a freezer bag. To reheat frozen ones, you need to microwave for 1 minutes.

My kids absolutely love these – especially since they can all have their “own kind”. I love that they are getting protein and veggies in! These are great for breakfast but also make an awesome afternoon snack too.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.

  1. The mozzarella, spinach and sweet pepper combination sounds amazing! I love that you can make these ahead of time. We will have to try your recipe. Thank you.

  2. Now this is a clever idea! I like the thought of making a pan of these and keeping them in the freezer for quick weekday breakfasts.

    Thank you for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

  3. how clever! I always thought about getting a brownie pan…now I have even a better reason! These look amazing…and I suppose I can use my cupcake pan but this is so much cooler!

    Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday this week.
