Weekday mornings are often a blur in our household. Buzzing alarms, breakfast preparations, lunch box preparations and kitchen cleanup often sends us in a tizzy! As much as possible, I try to prepare the night before so that we have the least possible chores waiting for us. We also like to make sure that everyone eats a healthy breakfast to start the day off right.
We love using Eggland’s Best in recipes and I am going to share one of my favorite ones with you today.
About Eggland’s Best
Did you know that Eggland’s Best (EB) eggs are packed fresher and stay fresher than ordinary eggs? By using EB eggs in everything from breakfasts, afterschool snacks to tasty desserts, it’s easy to sneak in key nutrients that will keep your little learners energized, focused, and strong.
Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain more than double the omega-3s, which studies have found may boost attention in kids under 12. Plus, with ten times the vitamin E, a key antioxidant for strong immunity, EB eggs can help to ward off those sick days.
We know the day doesn’t end after the bell rings, so you’ll be excited to hear that EB eggs pack four times the vitamin D, helping the body absorb calcium for strong bones on and off the field. They also have only 60 calories while ordinary eggs have 70 and also contain 25% less saturated fat, -helping to keep kids light on their toes.
Muffin Tin Egg Cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
4 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
dash of salt and pepper
Mix-in ideas for your omelet
diced bell peppers
chopped cooked bacon
Whisk together eggs, milk and salt and pepper in a mixing cup since you will be pouring the mixture into your muffin tins. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Use muffin liners for easier cleanup in a muffin tin of 6 muffins. Fill muffin containers about half full, then add about 2 teaspoons of mix-ins into each and stir. I found the toaster oven worked really well for the small 6 muffin tin! Picky eaters can mix in just their favorite ingredients.
