Clean Out the Fridge Egg Muffins

Egg Muffins

Looking for a hot breakfast that comes together fast? Try these egg muffins. Two things to note –

  1. I tell you what combination of veggies, cheese, and herbs I like in the recipe, but use what you love (and/or what you need to use up).
  2. Spray the heck out of your muffin tins. Then when you think you’ve sprayed too much, spray again. I can’t seem to make these come out of the tins perfectly. If you do, let me know where to send your gold star.

Print Recipe


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 red pepper finely diced
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 4 oz goat cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and generously spray a regular muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a small skillet, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and red pepper and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Set aside on a plate. Add the spinach and garlic to the pan and cook until slightly wilted, about 1-2 minutes. Set this aside on your plate as well.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Add in salt and pepper and thyme. Stir until combined.
  • Divide the onion and peppers, the spinach, and the egg mixture between the 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle in the goat cheese between each cup.
  • Bake until the eggs have puffed up and begin to brown, around 18-24 minutes. Enjoy immediately or allow to cool, then refridgerate for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave.


  • Use any combination of fillings (broccoli and cheddar, ham and green pepper, etc.) that adds up to just shy of 3 cups of filling. Divide between the 12 muffin cups and proceed with the recipe.



  • Replace some of the veggies with browned breakfast sausage or chopped cooked bacon.


  • Skip it and add more flavor with herbs or meat.
