Mini Egg Bites Recipe


  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (your choice – whole, skim, plant-based)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup fillings of your choice (see suggestions below)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice (cheddar, mozzarella, etc.)

Filling Suggestions:

  • Bacon and Cheddar: Crumbled cooked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sausage and Bell Pepper: Diced cooked breakfast sausage, chopped bell peppers (red, green, yellow)
  • Spinach and Feta: Chopped cooked spinach, crumbled feta cheese
  • Ham and Swiss: Diced ham, shredded swiss cheese
  • Vegetarian: Diced mushrooms, onions, chopped spinach


  • Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Grease Muffin Tin: Generously grease a mini muffin tin (24 cups) with cooking spray or butter.
  • Whisk Eggs: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • Add Fillings: Stir in your chosen fillings. Start with a base of about 1-2 tablespoons of your fillings per muffin cup.
  • Add Cheese: Top each cup with a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese.
  • Fill Muffin Cups: Pour the egg mixture into the muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full. The egg bites will puff slightly while baking.
  • Bake: Bake the egg bites for 15-20 minutes, or until they are set and the tops are slightly golden. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  • Cool and Serve: Let the egg bites cool in the pan for a couple of minutes before using a knife to loosen them and pop them out. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Make-Ahead: Mini egg bites are a great meal prep option. Prepare them in advance and store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave or toaster oven.
  • Silicone Muffin Pans: Silicone muffin pans are great for this recipe as the egg bites release easily.
  • Flavor Boost: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes, a dash of hot sauce, or your favorite herbs for extra flavor variation.

Enjoy your delicious and customizable mini egg bites!
