Zucchini + Spinach + Bacon Egg Muffins

I have been on the hunt for a new breakfast.  I go through phases where I love something and eat it everyday.  I did that with hard boiled eggs and then peanut butter toast and got burned out on both.  I like something pretty easy in the mornings.  I need it to be quick because I am usually dealing with the kids.   These muffins are super tasty and easy! The muffins can be made ahead of time and reheated.  You can freeze them or they will keep in the fridge about 3 days. The possibilities for fillings are endless.  You could do all veggies, meat,  or a combo of both like I did.  I thought they were so delicious and the best part I stayed full- really full til lunch and usually I am starving.

Enjoy!

    I'm glad you noted that these muffins keep you full b/c that is exactly the problem I have…eating a breakfast that will keep me full until lunch. Most of the time I don't have time for a mid-morning snack. Thanks for the suggestion. Can't wait to try these. 🙂

    I love egg muffins for an easy to grab breakfast on the way out the door (made ahead, of course)! I've tried a couple of versions– one just with different veggies and another with kind of a southwest twist (black beans, corn, green chillies, etc.). I'll try your recipe next 🙂
