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?
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 a 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.
My husband?loves ground turkey – I swear he would eat it for every meal. Good news is now he can with these Turkey Broccoli Egg Frittata Muffins!
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.
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 adding a piece of toast or a smoothie to your meal!
What goes into an egg frittata muffin?
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 stove top 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. Allow the egg muffins to cool completely then either wrap individually or place in a zip top bag or freezer safe container to store for up to three months. Just pull out of the freezer, reheat in the oven or microwave and you’re all set.
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 degrees 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.
