Quick & Easy Breakfast Egg Muffin Recipe

Breakfast – it’s a really important meal. We’ve heard that over and over, right?

Well, I completely agree . . . but I don’t necessarily always have the time to follow logical advice. There’s where this delicious, quick, and easy breakfast egg muffin recipe comes in!

Breakfast Egg Muffins

Picture many of your favorite breakfast ingredients in one tasty little circle – and all you need to do is bake in a muffin tin.

You’ll get eight servings out of one round of baking these egg muffins, and that means about four breakfasts (more if you’re a light eater like myself)!

Once you try this breakfast egg muffin recipe, you’ll never go back to making eggs the “regular” way.

Weight Watchers Friendly

One thing I love about Weight Watchers Freestyle is that eggs are zero points! Therefore you can make this delicious breakfast recipe for 3 points per serving.

The way to keep the points down is by using reduced fat shredded cheese. You can also use 1 lb of raw, sweet Italian turkey sausage as a substitution for another high fat, high point sausage.
