Breakfast For Dad!

Here are two simple and yummy recipes for the kids to make for Dad on his special morning!

Easy Yummy Egg Muffins!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings 12

Here is what you need to do to make them: Ingredients:

  • 10 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp garlic pepper
  • 1-2 cups Colby Jack Cheese (or cheese of choice)
  • 1/2 cup lean meat (low-fat turkey, turkey sausage, turkey bacon, etc)
  • veggies (optional) peppers, spinach, etc

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 F. A silicone muffin pan or cups will work best for this recipe, but a standard muffin tin will work too.

  • MIX. Mix all ingredients together, whisking your eggs first. Pour mixture into sprayed muffin tin cups, filling them almost to the top.

  • BAKE. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking often. Eggs will puff up and look like they are overflowing but they will set back down to normal size.

Tip: Be sure to spray the tin well, so the egg muffin cups easily come out.

Egg Muffin Cup Additions:

These Muffins are very customizable. You can use different cheese, different meats, as well as different add-ins.

  • Vegetables: Try any combinations of chopped spinach, diced tomatoes, chopped zucchini, chopped asparagus, garlic mushrooms, bell peppers, chives or scallions.

  • Meat: We prefer to use Turkey Sausage, bacon, ham, or regular sausage can be used too.

  • Cheese: Cheddar, mozzarella, and even a Mexican blend all work great in this recipe
