I’m always on the lookout for quick, healthy on the go breakfasts because of my busy mornings. Mini muffins tend to be my go-to because of how convenient it is. It’s a healthy breakfast all packed in one nutritious bite. You can also try out my APPLE, CARROT, AND COCONUT MINI MUFFINS. 

These egg bites are made with simple everyday ingredients. The three main ingredients are eggs,  turkey bacon, and sweet potatoes.

How to make these Morning Breakfast Bites

 

The first step is to get the sweet potato base ready. To do this, peel and grate the sweet potatoes and combine with shredded cheese.

Then, spray the muffin pan generously with non-stick cooking spray.  Distribute the sweet potato and cheese mixture evenly into the muffin cups with a small spoon or a measuring spoon (about 1 tbs)

Then, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add the chive. This is when you can be as creative as you want. Sometimes I add spinach, pancetta, cilantro, and even jalapenos for a little spice. I kept things simple and I just added chives. Whisk until all combined and smooth. About 1 to 2 minutes and set aside.

By now your sweet potato cups should be ready. Take them out of the oven and place the turkey bacon into the cups. Another way is to just add the bits of bacon into the egg. *The next step requires you to leave the oven on and raise the temperature to 425 degrees.

Pour the scrambled egg mixture into the mini muffin cups(I use a spoon or a small cup). Try not to overflow the muffin cups. Place them into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until eggs are set. If you are making the larger version of muffins, bake them for 20 minutes or until eggs look fully cooked.

Some other ingredients that pair well with these egg muffin bites?

  • Baby Spinach
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Mushrooms

*Tip

  • To make your eggs fluffy you can add milk or water.
  • If you use regular bacon, pan-fried the bacon first.

I make these in batches and keep them in the fridge for a quick grab and go throughout the week. They can easily be frozen. Just label a Ziploc bag with the date and place them in the freezer. My family enjoys them, they go fast. To reheat just pop them in the microwave for about 2 minutes.
