Egg Bites - Ham and Cheese (includes other varieties)


The perfect grab and go breakfast! Make them over the weekend and keep them in the fridge or freezer for breakfast in 30 seconds. For this specific recipe I chose ham and cheese as the flavor but I've made these a few different ways/varieties.

I provided 15 different yummy varieties to inspire your next egg bite creation!
The best part about these egg bites is that you can make the batch as big or small as you'd like.

Feel free to cut the recipe to make just two egg bites for one person or go ahead and double it for the perfect potluck brunch recipe.

I upped the protein in these by combining eggs and egg whites. The full recipe perfectly uses 1 carton of a dozen eggs and 1 32oz carton of egg whites. This should make buying ingredients for this recipe a breeze! The mix ins are entirely up to you.

Ham and cheese was a classic one to start but some of my other go to's are broccoli and feta or bacon and cheddar, yummy!

I made a fun step by step video to take you through the making of these egg bites.

Egg Bites - Ham and Cheese (includes other varieties)

24 Muffins | Cook time: 20 minutes

Notes: the perfect breakfast on the go! I created these for my fiancé for a protein packed alternative to his usual grab a banana and go breakfast. While the ham and cheese is a classic try some of the other delicious varieties below.


Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs

  • 32 oz egg whites

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/2 lb deli ham, chopped

  • 1/4 lb shredded cheese (provolone, Colby jack, cheddar)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.

  3. Spray 2 muffin tins with nonstick olive oil spray.

  4. Fill each muffin tin about 3/4 full with egg mixture.

  5. Sprinkle the ham and cheese into each egg cup. Yes you could save a step and mix these in with the eggs but I think doing it separately ensures an even amount of ham and cheese in each cup and also makes sure they don’t just sink to the bottom.

  6. Bake at 375F for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  7. Allow to cool completely before storing. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for one hour before transferring to an airtight container or gallon freezer bag. The extra step ensures the egg bites don’t stick together when freezing.

  8. To eat from fridge/thawed: microwave 30 seconds.

  9. To eat from frozen: microwave 1 1/2-2 minutes.
