Eggs are by far my favorite breakfast.

They’re just so darn good.

Aren’t they?

I can remember when I was a young girl and my mother taught me how to make sunny side up eggs – I thought I was so cool.

I invited my grandma over just to make ’em for her – and they were a bit too runny and under-cooked but I was still proud.

Then came the hard boiled eggs.

And deviled eggs.

And then omelets.

Then frittata.

And egg bakes.

But just recently I thought… why not make some cute little egg muffins?

Actually my muffin tin was staring at me screaming, “Please use me.”

So I did.

I made this fun lil’ easy egg recipe just for you.

And me.

Because it’s perfect for the kids when they’re in a rush to catch the school bus…

And convenient for you to pop into your mouth before you head out the door for work…

(Coffee does not count as breakfast, people. I repeat, please eat something.)

They’re also perfect to toss into a Ziploc bag and enjoy with a dollop of guacamole when your hunger strikes at 3PM.

Do the kiddies need a little snickity snack before soccer practice?


How about a bite of these protein-packed babies?

A little bit of egg, some fresh herbs, carrots, cherry tomatoes and you’re all set.

Like I said, the key word here is Easy.

O, and they’re pretty gosh darn tasty too.
