egg muffins: healthy recipe on-the-go for the whole family

Egg Muffins

I don’t know about you, but I hardly have time in the morning to mess with anything difficult for breakfast especially on weekdays. At work one day, one of my co-workers warmed something up that smelled amazing. I asked her what it was and she said “egg muffins”. I have never heard of these egg muffins before so of course I was interested in knowing how to make them especially after she used the word “easy”. I mean who doesn’t like an easy recipe that is also a make-ahead recipe? She told me the recipe but I deviated from what she told me to add a little bit of my own touch. So if you need something that is easy for breakfast or even pre/post-workout food idea, this is a must you should try. Just ask chai-momma Neesha and her husband.
