Veggie Egg Muffins- Kids Cook Monday

Every once in a while, we get Chris home on a Monday morning with us while he’s working from the house. We take those opportunities to do our “Kids Cook Monday” meals in the mornings and have a big breakfast as a family sitting at the table. Of course, I’m always a fan of “Breakfast for Dinner”, but this time aroundΒ we did “Breakfast for Breakfast.” What a concept!

I recently found these new biscuits that were marketed as “Junior” size. Chris jokes that I’m the exact target that marketing teams salivate over, because I will literally buy anything that looks new or shiny. These biscuits looked new and shiny so I went for them. They are just a cuter little version of the normal Grands biscuits- and they were perfect for stuffing into a muffin pan and making the perfect 3 bite, portable breakfast.

Veggie Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients
6-8 eggs
About 1/4 cup milk
A dash of Salt and Pepper
1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of biscuits (I used Junior Size)
A couple handfuls of chopped veggies (whatever kind you like!)

 

Here’s how these little cheesy, eggy bites came together…

Grease a muffin pan with a non-stick spray. Pull apart your biscuits into two halves. (One half a biscuit goes into each muffin)

Press each half biscuit into the muffin tin. (You’ll have leftover biscuits to make another tray or just bake them up on their own.)

Whisk your eggs, milk, salt and pepper and then pour the egg mixture onto the biscuits. Your biscuits might float a little in the eggs, but that’s OK!

Bake in the oven at 350* for about 13-18 minutes (until the eggs have set and aren’t wiggly.)

Nolan loves being in the kitchen. This was him watching the biscuits saying “hot, hot, hot!”

Our meal times are not fancy. In fact they’re usually quite loud and chaotic, but anytime we’re together in the kitchen and eating as a family, it’s all good!
