Introducing the make-ahead egg bites! Easy, yummy, fast, and nutritious! I love a make-ahead breakfast. One that you can make A LOT ahead of time and pop them in the oven or microwave just to reheat. Plus you can eat on them all week! This recipe is a simple protein packed way to grab a healthy breakfast on the go. Switch up the mix-ins to your liking and share some of your favorite combinations below. Excited to hear what you come up with! This would also be delicious in a quiche form.
