  • 8 large eggs beaten
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and diced
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup chopped turkey bacon OR regular bacon
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and grease a 12 cup muffin pan well (OR use 12 silicone muffin cups).
  • Mix all ingredients for the egg muffins together in a medium bowl. Evenly divide between the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the egg muffins are firm to the touch and cooked through.


To Freeze:

  • cool down, then place on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. freeze for 1-2 hours or until firm before placing into bags or containers to freeze
  • use bags or containers suitable for freezing and label with the name and use-by date (freeze for up to 3 months)
To defrost, heat in the oven (or in the microwave if you’re not a weirdo like I am) until piping hot all the way through before eating
