Caprese Egg Bites

12 Egg bites

This summer I have found a new obsession with all things caprese. It's nothing new to me, I went to Italy a couple years ago and when I got home I included tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil, and basil in almost everything I cooked. Egg bites are such a simple recipe to use with any leftover vegetable or other ingredient in the fridge. This time I made a caprese version and it does not disappoint! You can follow this recipe to make the same theme or use any of your leftover ingredients in the fridge/pantry to make a different version of egg bites. Enjoy!

    How do you freeze these well?? Every time I freeze things it’s a flop but my mom can do it the same way and hers turns out better. But I would totally make similiar if we could freeze them well and Reheat them well

      I individually wrap in parchment paper and then place into a freezer bag pressing the air out. Having them individually wrapped prevents freezer burn and also has them grab and go ready for microwaving (the reason I don't use saran wrap)

    These sound good and so easy!!! Thank you!!

    I must have missed this somehow, but since you're calling these "Bruschetta Egg Bites", I'm guessing there's a slice of toasted baguette or some kind of bread under each one, right?
