Egg Muffins with Kale, Roasted Red Peppers, and Feta Cheese-these healthy egg muffins are easy to make and perfect for breakfast on the go!
I am going to New Hampshire and Boston today and leaving my boys behind. I am looking forward to my trip, but I am already missing my boys. I haven’t traveled alone in almost two years. I know the boys are in good hands, Josh is the most amazing father, but I will still miss them.
I wanted to leave the kitchen stocked with good food so my boys had plenty to eat. Yes, Josh is perfectly capable of making delicious meals, he is a great cook, but I wanted to take some of the burden off of him. I know it is hard to manage two rambunctious boys, especially by yourself. So I made a Black Bean Quinoa Enchilada Bake, Zucchini Banana Bread, and Egg Muffins with Kale, Roasted Red Peppers, and Feta Cheese for my boys to enjoy while I am gone.
Our Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach, and Cheese are a favorite at our house and a favorite in most of your homes, it is one of our most popular recipes. I was worried my boys wouldn’t like my veggie version, but they love these veggie filled egg muffins just as much!
I love egg muffins because they are easy to make and easy to eat on the go! You can keep them in the fridge or freezer and reheat them in the microwave. They make a great healthy breakfast for busy weekday mornings.
I hope Josh and my boys appreciate these cute little egg muffins while I am traveling. And it will make me feel better that they are getting some veggies while I am gone…in case Josh decides to give them donuts and pizza all week…ha!
Egg Muffins with Kale, Roasted Red Peppers, and Feta Cheese are the perfect way to start any morning! Make them ahead of time so you can grab them on the go!

Hope you have a safe trip!
Looks delicious. I can live on these muffins all day.
Hi! Can’t wait to try these. Recipe header says it makes 8 muffins but instructions say to grease 6. Can you let me know which to do!? Thanks!!
I love the ingredients you put in these egg muffins! Especially the feta cheese!
Have a safe trip!
these are genius!! love how easy these make it to eat healthy on busy mornings!
How long do you hear these in the microwave? I know it sounds like a no brainer question but I have a habit of reheating for too long.
It should only take 20-30 seconds.
enjoy a couple of days kid free Maria!! what a great healthy breakfast!
Delicious breakfast egg muffins!!!
Seriously. These look SO GOOD. Recently I have been loving feta and wanting to incorporate kale more into our dishes. This would be perfect to start the day with a bang of nutrients.
Why do you require egg whites? Is it for perceived health reasons or texture/consistency? Just wondering, thanks!
What type of cooking spray do you use? I have used grape seed oil but my eggs really stick to the pan. I would like to keep the as natural and low fat as possible. Can’t wait to make these!
How long do they last in the freezer for?
These look delicious! Do you have any nutritional info on them? Curious about the calorie count especially
How do you reheat them in the microwave after refrigerating or freezing?
Would this work with frozen spinach?
do the peppers have to be “cooked” first or just raw fresh peppers?
If you use roasted red peppers, you don’t have to cook them. They are already soft.
