Egg Muffins with Turkey and Broccoli recipe

The first time I made egg frittata muffins, I wasn't sure if the idea would really work. Would an egg frittata muffin be enough food? Would my toddler actually eat them? Would it be worth the effort to make them ahead of time for the week? Would they be as easy as a regular frittata?

Sure enough, they were a great idea. So great, that I had to make some more flavor combinations of egg frittata muffins.

The idea for these came from a baby shower for a friend of mine. Someone made an egg casserole with broccoli and turkey.

Now I can't lie, I'm a little picky when it comes to breakfast protein. I have a hard time thinking that something like ground turkey can be okay for breakfast. It feels like lunch or dinner food to me!

But the casserole was SO good and I had to try to make the casserole into egg frittata muffins.

Why we love make-ahead muffins

My husband loves ground turkey — I swear he would eat it for every meal. The good news is now he can with these Egg Muffins with Turkey and Broccoli!

I love making a batch of these at the beginning of the week so I don't even have to think about making breakfast early in the morning when we're all up and ready for the day.

These make-ahead egg muffins are just sitting there waiting to be gobbled up! You can even freeze these muffins to eat later. (Which, they are, rather quickly.)

I usually eat two at a time, but serve one to my toddler. If you usually like a heavier breakfast, try three or add a piece of toast or a smoothie to your meal!

Eggs, of course, milk, a protein, vegetables and cheese, usually.

What does frittata mean?

The rough translation from Italian means "fried". Usually a frittata would be cooked on a stovetop in a pan or cast-iron skillet, hence the idea of "frying" but for these muffins, they're baked but will remind you of a frittata.

Can you freeze egg frittata muffins?

Absolutely! After baking egg muffins, allow them to cool completely on a wire cooling rack. Then, place them on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a zip top bag and store frozen for up to 2 months. Allow the egg muffins to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat each one in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven until thoroughly warmed.

How do you reheat egg muffins?

If you prefer to reheat in an oven, let egg muffins thaw overnight then reheat in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until hot. You can also reheat in the microwave after thawing. You can reheat egg muffins from frozen as well, it will just take a little more time.

I don't have broccoli, can I use something else?

Sure! Bell peppers, spinach, kale or cauliflower would be great substitutes in this recipe.

What can I serve these Turkey Broccoli Egg Frittata Muffins with?

Try serving them along with sweet muffins, like these Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins, or a side dish like Fresh Fruit Salad with Orange Juice or Roasted Bacon Breakfast Potatoes. If you're meal prepping for the week, make this side dish of sweet potatoes or prep Turkey Sloppy Joe Rice Bowls for the week too.

  1. I usually meal prep egg muffin frittatas on Sundays for the week ahead. I sometimes pair them with an English muffin to make a little breakfast sandwich! I've never tried the ground turkey and broccoli combo, so that's definitely on my list!
