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!

Make Ahead Egg Bites

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.

Brownie Bites Pan by Pampered Chef

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.

Egg Preparation

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.

Egg Bites Mix-ins

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

Step 4: Mix in the Mix-ins

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 container 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.

  3. FrugalHausfrau – Twin Cities – Hi, I'm the Mollie, the Frugal Hausfrau. In a moment of insanity, I decided to put my two cents worth out there and start this blog about frugal shopping and cooking. See, years ago, my daughter showed me a few blogs about bringing in dinners on a budget. I thought, “Weeeeel, maybe I could do that! I’ve been doing that all my life.” (Yeah, my head talks to me like that.) I had no computer skills, no photography skills and a crappy camera. Seriously, I didn’t even know how to upload a photo, let alone edit one. I don’t know if I’ve done any better than those other blogs or not, but I’ve persisted. Over the years, my blog has grown and grown up. It’s given me a platform to share tips and recipes that might help you save some hard-earned cash all while eating well. It’s also given me a platform to connect and visit with you! I love chatting with you and hearing your comments. I've been cooking since I was tall enough to pull up chair to stand at the counter, sink, and stove – over 50 years now, and I never tire of reviving the old or exploring the new. So I’ll keep giving you my quirky Grandma recipe box, a mix of new and old, and I hope you’ll keep following along! I love that you’re here for the ride, and thank you!

    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.
