Loaded Baked Egg Muffin Cups Recipe
A quick and easy protein-packed breakfast option, these loaded baked egg muffin cups are perfect for meal prep or a weekend brunch.
These egg muffin cups are not only delicious but super easy to make ahead when meal prepping for the week. You can choose any ingredients you want for the muffin cups – I filled with my favorites – cheese, spinach, peppers, onions, and bacon. You can totally skip the bacon too if you are vegetarian or want a meatless option.
Be sure to take advantage of the hot deals on Open Nature eggs and Lucerne cheese to make these baked egg muffin cups at home!

How to Make Egg Muffin Cups
The key to making these loaded egg muffin cups at home is to use a silicone muffin tin for baking. I used to make these in the metal tins and the clean up is a bear!
Unless you butter each of the muffin tins, you are much better off using a silicone muffin tin. I picked one up at Target for around $15 – the best investment I’ve made in cooking and baking supplies to date!
You can store these in a food storage container for up to 4 days and simply reheat in the microwave for 45 seconds.
