Easy Egg Bites ( Muffin Tin Recipe) (1)

Easy Egg Bites are simply little frittatas if you will. They have veggies, cheese, and meat if you like. Whatever you like in your eggs you can pretty much throw in egg bites. I used baby greens, tomatoes, bacon, and cheddar cheese. This is one of my favorite combos!

The idea is not to overload your muffin slots with too much, you don’t want these tasting like a salad, ha. Each muffin cup should have a feel-good amount of fillings to still taste like an egg bite.

Can you freeze Egg Bites

Absolutely! Cook them as directed, let them fully cool and transfer them to a flat surface tray like a cookie sheet or cutting board. Place them in the freezer for 1 hour then transfer them to a freezer-friendly container.

To Reheat

You can pop these in the microwave and reheat 1-2 mins from frozen, or 30 seconds from the refrigerator. These also reheat great int he oven or toaster oven.

Recipe Variations

You can add in or omit anything you want, recipe time should remain the same. If you will be using potatoes they will need to be cooked first. You can easily make this vegetarian friendly or dairy-free.

  10. Could I use cupcake wrappers with the egg bite mixture instead of the cooking spray?

    Reply

    • Yes!! I would spray the wrappers because it will stick if not! Silicone works best ✨

      Reply

      • Hey Kay! Hope your childbirth went well!!!! ✨ Question for when you’re back: how do you freeze them? I don’t see it on the original post and thought I’d ask. I’ll comb through the comments again in case I missed it!!

  12. Can this be made with egg whites instead of the whole egg? Any changes?

    Reply

    • Yes! I do this all the time! Egg whites tend to stick! So I would use cooking spray and silicone molds if you have any. Also egg amount double for egg whites.

  15. This recipe was just what I was looking for! I’ve been totally addicted to some Egg Bites I found at Target, and wanted to recreate them myself. This recipe was the perfect starting point. Just added some cottage cheese, Monterey Jack, minced garlic and some onion salt, and put everything (except my “toppings” like spinach and red peppers) in the blender for a couple of minutes. Perfection! Thank you!

    Reply

    • Sounds amazing Heather!!!!! Ty!✨✨

      Reply

      • If I use white mushrooms do I need to pre cook first or can they go in raw.

        Reply

        • If chopped very fine they should be fine thrown in raw.

          Reply

    • Yum how much cottage cheese did you use and did the wetness change your cooking time?

      Reply

  16. I have no idea what “baby greens” is.

    Reply

    • Baby spinach, baby kale ect.. there smaller and softer than a regular spinach or kale.

  17. Love the recipe but needed 8 extra large eggs, 1/3 cup milk. Also added peppers and hot sauce ;).

    Reply

    • Eggs can be tricky cause there all different sizes!! I will definitely note that!!! yes hot sauce always a necessity!!!😍😍😍😍

      • Do I remove from muffin pan immediately or let them cool first.

        Reply

        • Let cool!

  19. How long would you recommend for reheating in the oven?

    Reply

    • Hey Chelsea,
      I would put them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes!

      Reply

  20. Anyone have an estimate of how much salt you started with or currently use with this general recipe? ½ tsp, ¾ tsp, ⅛ tsp? A few 3-4 dashes or grinds?

    Reply

    • I made these Egg Bites and They are delicious. I followed your recipe as base/ guide, but I added some veggies, took out some veggies- either way they taste good. The top of mine look kinda reddish, I think the paprika I added may have given them this look. Thank you for sharing your easy, very tasty recipe.

      Reply

      • I always use 1 tsp But I know some people like it more salty or no salt at all so that’s why I always put to taste

        Reply

  21. I mistakenly used double the amount of milk (1/2 cup) and my egg bites were PERFECT! I also used one more egg and ANOTHER splash of milk! Still they are perfect and absolutely delicious. I used spinach, onion, cheddar cheese and crumbled breakfast sausage (cooked) and I will make them again and again.

  22. Do you have a cooking time for jumbo muffin tins?

    Reply

    • Hey Vicky!
      I would add 10 minutes to cooking time! Check centers to see if cooked and check every 3 mins after!

      Reply

  23. I’m so excited to try this!! I’m glad there are many muffin slots bc I want to try all different kinds! Thank you Kay!

    Reply

  24. I just made a batch of these. I used sharp cheddar cheese, a diced roma tomato, a diced poblano pepper, and cilantro. I quickly sauteed the poblano pepper before using it in the egg bites. I used the amount of ingredients recommended or even a bit more. When I’ve made similar recipes, I always end up needing more egg mixture, so I started with 8 eggs and 3 oz milk. After filling each cup nearly to the top, I had only filled 8 cups and had about 1T of egg mixture left. I mixed up 3 more eggs and a big splash of milk and still only filled 10 cups. Now that I’ve baked them, I would say to fill the cups about 3/4 full but I would still have needed 11-12 eggs and 1/2 cup milk to fill 12 cups. I used “large” eggs and they were definitely large to extra large in size. I used a 12-muffin tin. I added 1/2 t salt to the first egg mixture and a pinch to the additional 3 eggs. I didn’t add pepper since the poblano had some heat. They’re pretty, they taste good and the texture is correct– I just needed more egg mixture for 12 muffins.

  25. Can I use liquid eggs instead of making the mixture myself?

    Reply

    • Yes

      Reply

  26. I tried egg bites from Trader Joe’s and decided to make them myself but with vegetables instead of just bacon and cheese like the ones I had were. I made these with chopped: smoked Turkey, mushroom, red onion, cherry tomato, parsley, arugula, and sharp cheddar I almost forgot and sprinkled on top. Really good.

    Reply

  27. I did a version with caramelized onions sautéed with garlic, seasoned salt, parsley flakes, fresh roma tomatoes and aged cheddar and upon eating them I think I saw the face of God.

  29. Sorry should have clarified my last comment..
    I used the 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt instead of the 1/4 milk.. everything else was similar. Thank you again!

  30. Great quick easy recipe!
    I use salami, ham or whatever cold cuts I have on hand as it’s easier and swap a half a pepper for the tomato… delicious

  33. What is the best way of freezing these?

    Reply

    • To freeze egg bites:

      1. Allow the egg bites to cool completely before freezing. This will prevent condensation and excess moisture from forming inside the container.

      2. Transfer the egg bites to an airtight container or freezer bag. Make sure the container is specifically designed for freezer use and is capable of sealing tightly.

      3. Label the container with the current date and contents to help you keep track of the storage time.

      4. Place the container with the egg bites in the freezer, ensuring it is placed on a flat surface so that the egg bites don’t shift during freezing.

      5. If you prefer, you can also individually wrap each egg bite with plastic wrap before placing them in the container. This will help prevent them from sticking together.

      6. When you’re ready to enjoy the frozen egg bites, simply take out as many as you need and thaw them in the refrigerator overnight.

      Note: Properly stored, egg bites can typically be frozen for up to 2 to 3 months without a noticeable loss in quality.

  34. What would be the recommended cooking time (baking and reheating) if I were to use a mini muffin tin?

    Reply

    • Yes it’ll be shorter! Check the mini muffin tin half way, but I would say 12-15 minutes.

      Reply

  35. These were so easy and tasted great! Definitely will make again and again.

    Reply

  36. Thank you so much for the recipe! I didn’t have much for breakfast and didn’t have a lot of ingredients. I ended up cooking up some cubed Obriens hashbrowns with peppers and onions, a sausage patty and also used cheese. I only had 3 eggs so I used a little less than half the milk. I topped with syrup when I served and they were so delicious!!
