If you’ve never made them before, breakfast egg muffins are similar to mini frittatas: an egg-based dish similar to an omelet that is filled with meat, cheese, or vegetables. The beauty of mini frittatas, or egg muffins, is that they are simple, inexpensive, and versatile to make. Not only are the flavor options endless, but they are a great way to use up leftovers or odds and ends you have in the fridge.
For this particular egg muffin recipe, I opted to go with a simple combination of spinach and feta cheese because I think the flavors pair beautifully and it’s a great way to add some more leafy greens and fiber to your diet. Although I used feta cheese, you could truly use any type of cheese that you like, cheddar, mozzarella or goat cheese would work particularly well, and it’s a great way to add a little boost of protein to your breakfast at the same time. When shopping for cheese, be sure that you read the ingredients and opt for natural cheeses made with milk, salt, microbial enzyme, and bacterial cultures.
In addition to being easy to make, these spinach and feta egg muffins are high in protein, full of nutrients, and low in calories. Each egg and spinach muffin contains 7 grams of protein and 100 calories making them an ideal breakfast for any diet or health goal and a great way to start the day.
These healthy breakfast egg muffins with spinach and feta cheese are a great meal prep idea that works well for breakfast, lunch or a simple snack. Meal prep a batch of these spinach egg muffins this weekend and you’ll have a healthy, high-protein meal ready to go every day of the week.
