A great way to start the morning because they are high in protein, taste great and satisfy me until lunch. You can make these so many different ways with whatever you have hanging around in your refrigerator. Here are some other suggestions.

Egg Muffin Variations:

  • Green Eggs and Ham – Spinach, chopped scallions, and ham.
  • Kale – Chopped onion, and chopped fresh baby kale.
  • Mushrooms and Cheese – sliced mushrooms and Swiss cheese.
  • Or try these Loaded Egg Muffins.

I usually like to combine egg whites with whole eggs, but if you rather use egg whites, that is fine too. Refrigerate for up to 5 days. Microwave in 30 seconds intervals until heated through.

  1. Love this recipe, we make them all the time. I steam the broccoli just a little bit, it takes that raw taste away and it doesn’t get mushy. I’ve also done the variation of mushrooms and Swiss cheese. So good!

  2. How many green ww points? I only see 1 Blue sp.

  3. Can these be frozen and reheated?

  4. No need to precook the broccoli- it turns to mush by the time it is steamed, baked, then reheated.

  5. Why do you add olive oil to the broccoli?

    • I cook without oil so I made it without oil and it was just fine…………..I always tweek recipes to suit my taste and they just serve for me to get an idea. this was good.

  6. The cook time at the top of the recipe card says 30 mins so I overcooked them! Make sure to set the timer for 20 minutes!

  7. I made BROCCOLI AND CHEESE EGG MUFFINS. They came out perfect. Can’t wait to try the Loaded Egg Muffins. These recipes are perfect keto eats. I finally found a great recipe site. Thank you Healthy Low Carb skinnytaste.com

  8. These are so delicious! I will make them often!

  9. I am not a fan of brown, crispy edged eggs.  Any chance you might experiment with doing this in the instant pot someday?

  10. i bet these could be done in the egg thingy for the instant pot, like the Starbucks egg bite thingys

  11. How do you keep you muffin tin clean after baking egg dishes in it? I loved these, but I had to retire my tin.

  12. Great way to start the day!

  13. Delicious, great way to use up leftover veggies too

  14. So so so good!! Easy to bring to work and have throughout the week! 

  15. Hello,
    I made the egg muffins and they stuck to the tin even though the pan was sprayed with olive oil. Any suggestions on how to avoid this?

  16. Definitely tasty. I hate to say that I altered slightly by adding more goodies, like carmalized onions and peppers and panko breadcrumbs on top. I think next time I will pop these into a phyllo pastry as quite a bit stuck to the tins despite spraying and the evoo ingredient. 

    Thank you for the inspiration!! A good change up from boring egg muffins!

  17. I desperately need to lose weight. While the meals sound great they don’t give a calorific value so I know my overall intake per day. I know it’s a way of eating and not just a diet but at this stage I need to be losing weight as quickly as possible without being silly as I have 30 kg to remove. Thanks Elaine

  18. Just made them delicious so easy to follow for someone who doesn’t cook thank you 

  19. I made these today.  Not only were they super easy but absolutely delicious too!  My husband tried to sneak more!!  I can’t wait to try some of the variations as well.  

  20. Is there a particular size muffin pan?
