I love that these healthy egg muffins can be made in advance to be reheated and/or frozen to help your family get a healthy, vegetable-packed breakfast in on those busy school days! This is a versatile dish that can include whatever fresh vegetables you prefer.

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 4 days and may also be frozen. To reheat, pop them in the microwave until warm.
Serve with a simple salad with your choice of greens, veggies, maybe an apple, and tossed with salt and pepper, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar.
