My favorite make-ahead item is breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day, but it comes at a time when my neurons are barely firing. I often go with avocado toast, banana-peanut butter toast, yogurt and granola, or maybe just an apple and a hardboiled egg. Occasionally I’ll have oatmeal with strawberries or maybe a leftover waffle, in case you were wondering.
That seems like a lot of options, but they’re all pretty carb-heavy, which isn’t always the best way to start your day. I love eggs with veggies for breakfast, which is why that Potato Breakfast Quiche/Frittata is so amazing.
However, little travel-size Paleo egg muffins are better for busy mornings. They cook faster too, so it’s a win-win.
You can make these ahead of time, and store them in the fridge or freezer. In fact, I prepared these simultaneously with dinner and I hardly noticed the extra work. These are really easy and simple and perfect for workweek mornings!Print
Easy Paleo Egg Muffins – Perfect for busy mornings!
- 10 eggs
- 1 cup spinach, chopped
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced
- 4 oz mushrooms, sliced
- Optional 1 sausage, or 2 strips bacon, or 3-8 oz ground meat of choice (we used ground chicken)
- oil for greasing muffin pan
- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- Brown your meat on the stove, making sure it is cooked thoroughly. Lightly sauté the mushrooms along with the meat. Add the chopped spinach and cook just until wilted.
- Chop remaining ingredients and whisk eggs while browning the meat or sausage. Add any salt and pepper or other seasonings to the eggs and/or meat.
- Grease the bottom of your muffin pan with your oil or lard of choice. Bacon grease works well, as does avocado oil. Coconut oil works well but does impart a bit of flavor.
- Begin layering your ingredients – meat, peppers, onions, and mushrooms, then spinach, then fill with the egg mixture.
- Bake for 16-20 minutes on 350 degrees fahrenheit. Then loosen edges with a butter knife to remove and serve.
- Serving size is 2 Paleo Egg Muffins.
- To reheat on busy mornings, nuke for about 25 seconds in the microwave. To reheat from frozen, nuke 3 times for 20 seconds at a time. (Checking to make sure it’s not rubbery.)
- Nutrition label includes 2 strips pork bacon, chopped, and is for 2 Paleo egg muffins.
