What kinds of veggies can I use?
Feel free to add just about anything you have on hand! Here’s what I found worked for me:
- Green bell peppers
- Red onion
Green onions aren’t necessarily a veggie, but they are another favorite for baked egg breakfast muffins because of how much flavor they add! The salt and pepper also brings out some of the bright veggie flavors.
How many calories does an egg muffin have?
These egg cups have around 70 calories per muffin making a light breakfast option. I usually will have two for breakfast.
Keep in mind that the nutrition information is just an estimate so if you’re looking for an exact nutrition breakdown, you’ll want to use a trusted calculator using the brands that you have on hand.
If you’re looking to cut down on saturated fat, feel free to use only egg whites. This will cut down on the overall amount so you may want to do a full dozen eggs.
How do you stop the muffins from sticking?
I like to use a little cooking spray in each of the muffin cups before adding in the egg mixture. You could also rub a little olive oil in each if you don’t have cooking spray on hand.
Another option is to use reusable silicone cups in the actual muffin tin so you don’t have to worry about it sticking to the tin. You’d need around 18 and to cook it at separate times since a traditional muffin tin has 12 muffins. I’d avoid using mini muffin tins if you’re able to.
What if I want to use another protein in them?
You definitely can! Some cooked and diced bacon would be perfect. I also like using breakfast sausage as an option. You should try out these Sausage, Egg and Cheese Muffins if that’s something you’re interested in.
How do you reheat egg and veggie muffins?
It’s as easy as putting two on a microwave safe plate and reheating them for 1:00 to 1:30. You may want to cover them in a paper towel to avoid any spatters especially in a public microwave.
Looking for other breakfast options? Try one of these:

- Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray and fill with mixture evenly. Feel free to use silicone cups if you want to make sure they don't stick.
- Bake for 16 - 18 minutes until no longer runny. You may need to do two batches if you don't have two muffin tins.
- Serve warm, or let cool to room temperature and refrigerate in an air tight container until ready to eat.
