Don’t miss these quick and easy make ahead Bacon and Egg Morning Muffins that you can grab for busy mornings.
Breakfast is my least favorite meal to make. I am barely awake. I need coffee to function. Quick and easy is a must for breakfast in our family.
What are typical breakfast foods for us? Cereal, frozen pancakes, frozen waffles, eggs, oatmeal, and bacon. Usually, it’s simply cereal. While my coffee is brewing I can usually pour a bowl of cereal. Usually.
I know this isn’t a great option though. That’s why these Bacon and Egg Morning Muffins are wonderful. They can be made ahead of time and frozen. Pull them out of the freezer, use either the microwave or toaster oven to warm them up, and serve a yummy, filling breakfast.
