Let's Chat: Versatility!

  • This recipe is 100% customizable! You can add any add-ins of your choosing! Try various proteins, veggies, herbs, and seasonings. For this recipe, we made a big batch of the same add-ins so we mixed everything together in one bowl first, then poured it into the muffin tins. You could first just mix the eggs and quinoa together in a bowl, pour into muffin tins, then mix and match add-ins for a variety of flavors. You can also omit the quinoa for a lower-carb breakfast/brunch option if desired, or even do a complete egg white muffin for a lower fat content. Everything is totally up to you and your taste buds! Once everything is prepped breakfast is served in just 15 minutes!

    • Here are a few combos we also love!

      • Bacon and spinach

      • Tomato and spinach

      • Ham and broccoli

      • 3 cheese

      • Sausage and mushroom

      • And the list continues!

Tips to the Perfect Quinoa Egg Muffin

  • Make sure to grease your muffin tins! Or use cupcake liners to help prevent sticking. There's a 99.9999% chance the eggs will stick to the muffin tin walls if not greased well enough.

  • Use a small spatula to help loosen the eggs from the muffin tin walls if sticking occurs.

  • Only need to fill muffin tins to 3/4 full, eggs will rise to fill the entire muffin tin.

  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. When ready to eat just microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds and enjoy!

  • You can also put them in the freezer for up to 2 months.
