No joke boys and girls, these Easy Egg Muffins and meal prep made things happen this week.
For some weird reason whenever I complete something no matter how large or small scale. I have to make a noise. Not just any noise, my noise. My noise, you ask? Boom. Finished laundry? Boom. Ate dinner? Boom. Made it through Thanksgiving? Yea, that definitely warrants a boom. So needless to say, there were booms happening everywhere. And with all that booming, there definitely was not a lot of time for breakfast. And I am a girl that needs her breakfast. These easy egg muffins made mornings a breeze.
Oh, and outside of these Easy Egg Muffins, I have other super exciting news!
On top of all the holiday madness, I got to go wedding dress shopping and it was a blast! My bestie flew in from Dallas and we had a total girl’s day. And yes, I ended up picking out my beautiful dress. Wait for it…. Boom. But of course, not without starting my day with these easy egg muffins.
Now the good news, well I guess it’s all good news

Now, of course these easy egg muffins are one of the easiest breakfast recipes (I mean it does have the word “easy” in the title) because you can make a whole week’s worth of breakfast in under 15 minutes. And- did I say meal prep? The funny thing about saying meal prep, is you automatically assume it’s healthy. And while I don’t always encourage assuming things, cuz you know the joke-an ass out of you and me. This time you are safe to assume all you want! I used egg whites, chicken sausage, and added cottage cheese, so these little muffins of health are packed with protein and minimal calories.
Well get on it, where there is a muffin tin there is a way!

Total yum! I absolutely love egg muffins, they are so great for easy, quick, & healthy breakfasts (or lunch). I have never tried cottage cheese in my muffins, I’m excited to try it out!
