Breakfast On The Run

Mornings are pretty hectic around here.  I should specify, weekday mornings are crazy busy around here.  It usually starts with me waking up, hitting the snooze a few times, then a mad rush to get Sun Kissed Boy #1 (who moves slower than a turtle) and Sun Kissed Boy #2 (who may or may not want to cooperate with the school going business) ready for school.  Yes, this could all be less crazy and I’d have time for a leisure cup of coffee and we could sit for breakfast and talk about what’s in store for our day if I got up when the alarm actually went off.  But that would only happen in Bizzaro World.  I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and all that jazz.  I also want my children to learn good eating habits (even if it’s jammed down their throat).  I started making egg casserole in a muffin pan (so everyone has an individual helping) and reheating it throughout the week every morning for them. 

Egg “Muffins”
-Eggs
-Milk
-Ham
-Veggies
-Cheese
-Salt & Pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 400.  Spray muffin pan with Pam.  Mix everything together and pour in muffin pan about ¾ full.  If you have extra, you can fill it to the top.  Bake for 20-25 or until golden brown and fluffy.

I used ham, veggies, and cheese because it’s what I had on hand.  You can use whatever topping you prefer.  Each muffin tin holds about one egg, depending on how many toppings you put in.


The 4 oz. Glad containers work great for storing these muffins.


To reheat, I pop one in the microwave for about 40 seconds and serve.

Meet the helper.


He loves to help…

…and he loves to taste.

Another great thing about this breakfast is that if we’re in a super-duper rush, we can grab it and eat it in the car.  I'm just saying.


Check back in tomorrow when I’ll be repurposing this!
The basket, not the eggs.  :)


UPDATE:
See the light fixture made with the egg basket here.

What a great idea! I'm going to make these with (I hope) the leftover ham from Thanksgiving.
