Loaded Egg Muffins – Better Than Starbucks

For the last two weeks, I’ve been enjoying homemade¬†Loaded Egg Muffins! I got the idea from Starbucks and Natasha’s Kitchen and made them mine by adding in some of my favorite¬†ingredients.

Making them yourself will save you a lot of money at the Starbucks register and they will taste even better!

They are so simple to whip together on a Sunday afternoon and you will feel very accomplished¬†because your breakfast is prepared for the whole week ahead.¬†The only exact measurement is what you need for the egg mixture and how long to bake because it’s like creating an omelet, you can add whatever you’d like.

The prep work is what takes the longest, but it is worth it!

I like to add hashbrowns cooked with half of a diced onion, bacon and grated cheese. Before you even start with your eggs, you need to cook your bacon, cook your hashbrowns (season to taste) and grate your cheese.

*You can buy frozen hashbrowns, pre-grated fresh hashbrowns (these are a favorite) or grate a large russet potato and squeeze out excess water using a paper towel. Also, you can buy pre-grated cheese to make it easier.

Preheat oven to 375¬įF.

First, start by whisking 9 eggs with 3 tbsps of milk together,  add 1/3 cup grated cheese and season to taste.

Second, liberally spray your muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and divide the egg mixture evenly. (It’s about halfway up the well)

Third, evenly distribute half of your cooked bacon in each well.
