Do you have chaos every weekday morning in your house? Every school year, we rush to get kids out the door. School starts in a week, and this year, I am thinking about how to make our mornings easier. Having a quick, ready-made breakfast is a great way to save time.

These deliciously filling egg muffin cups are a family favorite. They are an easy grab-and-go breakfast for busy families! (You will also love that these low-carb breakfast muffins are freezable too!)

You will love how easy these egg muffin cups are to make. I make them in a muffin tin, so I have 12 breakfast egg muffins. The kids usually eat two for breakfast each; then, I freeze the rest in a large freezer bag. It is so easy, and everyone gets a healthy breakfast with these Kids love this grab-and-go breakfast when hurrying out the door on their way to school.
