I love eating eggs for breakfast. Eggs are nutritious, filling, and come with plenty of health benefits. I change up things every now and then whenever I have eggs for breakfast. Today, I’ll introduce you to my favorite breakfast on the go, vegetarian egg muffins with spinach and mushrooms.

This is the healthy version of the breakfast egg muffins.

So what are breakfast egg muffins cups?

When I first heard of egg muffins for breakfast I thought it was simply the ‘old muffins with extra egg. Boy was I wrong!

Breakfast egg muffins cups are simply a combo of whole eggs or egg whites and lots of fresh vegetables, cheese, peppers, or hash browns, mixed together and baked in cupcake cups or muffins tins.
