When it comes to meal prepping, egg muffins are my go-to food. They make the most perfect meal or snack, and my whole family loves them. Kevin usually packs them up and takes them to work, and I put one in Connor’s lunch box for when he is at my parents’ house and they can easily heat it up for breakfast or lunch. They are ridiculously quick and easy to make, and you can use whatever veggies or cheese you have on hand. These Italian Egg Muffins were an instant favorite. Kevin said they were the best one’s I have made, and both my parents said that they smelled amazing when they heated up Connor’s. They also said Connor scarfed his down, which I also was witness to when I made them for him at home. I love the flavors of the roasted red pepper and basil, and any time I can sneak a little spinach into a recipe, I’m all for it.
