Jump to Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for an easy and healthy breakfast. I don’t mind eating the same thing for breakfast each day so meal prepping breakfast is easier for me than it is for dinner. I also really love making sure that my kids have a balanced breakfast which includes protein, healthy fats, and carbs. Having a veggie involved? An even bigger plus!

These egg bites are super simple and I love keeping them in the fridge. My kids love them…in fact, my almost 8 yo will eat 3 in one sitting! I think he would eat more if I let him, LOL. I love that he is begging for healthy breakfast foods! It helps balance out the Lucky Charms! haha.

The secret ingredient to making them such a great texture is the cottage cheese. Don’t like cottage cheese? I would still try these! You cannot tell it is in there! You blend it smooth and it disappears, but it makes the egg bits so much creamier and smoother. I promise, it’s worth it! Plus, added protein.

You can pick whatever mix ins you love. Here I did ham, cheese, and broccoli. Sausage, spinach, and mozzarella might be good! But use your imagination and choose what you love!
