When it comes to breakfast, we are big fans of healthy, easy options that start the day off on the right note. Egg bites have become one of our go-to’s because they’re full of protein and easy to eat! Although the Starbucks ones are delicious, we wanted an option that we could make at home (read: save money) and customize with our favorite add-ins. Bonus – you can make these ahead of time and switch up the flavor with different veggies, meats, and cheeses. We decided to turn one of our favorite Sunday brunch meals – the Denver omelet – into egg bites that are perfect for a busy mid-week morning.
Of course, there are plenty of variations to try. Why not give our Spinach and Feta Egg Bites a go next?

Egg Bites Recipe Tips
+ These egg bites are so easy to make ahead of time and are even freezer friendly! These will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the fridge, or up to 3 months in the freezer. Warm them up in the microwave with a wet paper towel so they don’t dry out.
+ Customize your egg bites with what you have on hand. Other yummy options to add in include broccoli, bacon, spinach, different types of cheese, and chili flakes.
+ We love serving our egg bites with a hot sauce like Frank’s Red Hot. It’s a yummy way to add some kick to your morning.
+ Don’t be afraid to double this recipe and make a big batch! You can even make different flavors at once – just crack about 4 eggs for each set of 6 bites you want to make.
