Muffin tin eggs are a high-protein breakfast that will help keep you full until lunch time! A mid-morning snack works best for some people, while others may say that their job doesn’t allow them to take a break for a snack. So, what is a person left to do?
In the case of a busy workday, we recommend prioritizing protein and fiber at your breakfast. These two nutrients in combination help keep you full because they both take extra time for digestion. Eggs are a nutrient-dense protein source, being one of the few food sources of vitamin D. Eggs are also low in saturated fat, and a good source of iron, carotenoids, and choline!
Muffin tin eggs are also great for morning breakfast for people who are crunched for time in the morning, or kids who don’t have time for breakfast at home before hoping on the school bus! You can customize this recipe with your favorite varieties of cheese, vegetables and seasonings to make your perfect, morning morsel.
For mornings when you have time to eat breakfast at home, give our Huevos Rancheros a try next! And if you follow a vegan diet, our can still have muffin tin eggs too! Give this Vegan Muffin Tin Egg recipe a try by Tessa from Salted Plains.
