HOW LONG DO EGG MUFFINS LAST?
Stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container these will last 3-4 days.
You can also keep them in the freezer for up to 2 months. Make sure to let them cool completely before freezing. Then wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container or freezer-safe ziploc bag.
HOW TO REHEAT
Refrigerated – Place egg muffin on a microwave safe plate and then microwave for 15-20 seconds or until just heated through. If you over cook them they will become tough.
Frozen – Unwrap egg muffins from plastic wrap, wrap in damp paper towel and place on microwave safe plate. Heat in microwave in 20 second increments until warmed through.
- Spinach – You can use either frozen spinach that has been thawed and water squeezed out or fresh spinach that has been cooked.
- Vegetables: Diced tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, onions
- Protein: Cooked ground chicken, ground turkey, ground sausage, chorizo or crumbled bacon
- Double this recipe and serve them for breakfast and have more for the rest of the week because they reheat great. Also, great for serving to a crowd.
- Buy diced ham and shredded cheese to save on time.
- Make sure to grease your muffins well to avoid a stuck on mess. We recommend using a silicone muffin tin placed on a baking sheet for easy clean up.
- Fill muffin cups 3/4 full because they puff up as they cook. They will deflate a little when they cool.
- Run a plastic knife around the inside walls of the muffin cup to help loosen them if needed.
