These Breakfast Egg Muffins come together quickly and are a great make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings. They are hearty and loaded with fluffy eggs, potato, spinach, melted cheese and crisp bites of bacon.
Eggs are a breakfast favorite in our house – they are protein-packed and a great way to start your day. These are a fun twist on your regular scrambled eggs.
These egg muffins are wonderful fresh out of the oven but they can also be made ahead and refrigerated up to 5 days or frozen (see freezing and reheating instructions below). We love a good make-ahead breakfast to jump-start our day. Some of our favorites make-ahead breakfasts are breakfast burritos, these Egg, Ham and Cheese Crepes or French Toast Casserole.

6 to 8 medium russet potatoes
Salt and ground pepper
Nonstick cooking spray
24 large eggs
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Bake the potatoes until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow to cool, and then peel and grate them. Season well with salt and pepper.
- Adjust the oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Spray two 12-hole muffin pans generously with cooking spray. Scoop 3 to 4 tablespoons of grated potato into each muffin hole. Use your fingers to gently press down the sides and bottom in each muffin hole to make a nest. Spray again with cooking spray. Then bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch and make sure they do not burn.
- Allow the nests to cool and lower the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Then crack an egg into each nest. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake until the whites are set, about 15 minutes.
