Egg Muffins is it a flip or a flop

Egg Muffins, I've  seen healthy not so healthy
fully loaded not an ounce of redemption muffins

 

Making large quantities  & freezing them
I'll try anything to save time & mess
my usual way of cooking healthy eggs is
in the microwave done in under 5 minutes  

 

trying to be low carb & dairy free I used bacon to give flavor to the spinach & mushroom  saute

 

I also microwaved broccoli  & onion


I filled the muffin tins 1/2 way with spinach because  it's dense
the broccoli  I filled to the top because there are air pockets
the idea is to have enough room for 1 egg per muffin tin











Beat the eggs in bowl, because  mine were pretty full with veggies 8 eggs filled 10 muffin tins


Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes  
test by inserting a knife in center of egg
if it comes out clean they are done

 

 very yummy
I can just imagine....
loaded  bacon, cheese, hash browns
oh yeah very yummy heart attack in muffin form


flop freezing them at least the healthy version 
edible yes, texture not so good

I would make again if feeding a crowd 
wanted variety, simple, make ahead dish
for a quick healthy breakfast make my microwave  version
