Breakfast in a Snap: 12 Easy Ways to Bake Eggs in a Muffin Tin

I’ve recently gotten into baking our breakfast eggs in muffin tins. It is such a fun and surprisingly easy way to get a delicious breakfast on the table without much effort. Once you get the hang of it, you can fill and bake them with just about anything you want. Interested in a French breakfast? Make them with leeks and gruyere. Prefer diner-style? Add a pancake! No matter what you are in the mood there is a egg dish you can bake in a muffin tin for you! The key to make this work is to spray each muffin tin thoroughly so the egg doesn’t stick after it has been baked. Don’t stir in too many add-ins so that the egg doesn’t get overcrowded and bake unevenly. And, lastly, only use one or two eggs per muffin tin. It may look like there is room for more, but they puff up when they bake!
