Easy Make-Ahead Broccoli Cheddar Egg Muffins are full of veggies and protein for a healthy breakfast on busy mornings. This recipe is perfect for weekend meal prep! (gluten-free, vegetarian)
Great news! I have FINALLY graduated with my master’s degree in clinical nutrition from UT Southwestern! (Yes, the dramatic all-caps was necessary.) That means no more school for me and I am this close to becoming a registered dietitian! All I have to do is pass my registration exam. Although I am done with school, somebody else I know (yep, Mr. Table!) is going back to school here in a couple of weeks just like many of you and your kiddos.
As we transition into fall and back-to-school season, it’s back to rushed mornings and busy days, which means sometimes breakfast is the first thing to be bumped off of the ‘important things to do’ list. But on busy days, it is even more important to get a nutritious start to keep you going. Which is why I made you a delicious, healthy, make-ahead breakfast that you can grab on your way out the door to keep you full through to lunch.
Eggs are an absolute must on most days for me. They are an easy source of protein and go wonderfully alongside veggies (yay!). Of course, I know most people don’t have time to make a full breakfast every day, so I wanted to make sure these make-ahead broccoli cheddar egg muffins were easy to prepare ahead so you can still eat a nutritious breakfast. I love that they pack in protein and veggies in an easy-to-grab cup. Just add some fruit, a piece of toast, or a cup of yogurt to go alongside them, and you’ll be good to go for hours.
I love the classic combination of broccoli and cheddar in these delicious egg muffins, but feel free to use any veggies or cheese you have on hand. You could also add some cooked chopped ham or sausage crumbles if you’d like for a little extra protein. Customize them to your liking for the perfect make-ahead, grab-and-go breakfast on the run and enjoy not being starving all morning!
