When it comes to breakfast recipes, we like to keep things quick, easy, or both if we can. That’s why we’ll fall back onto solid breakfast dishes like our Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole or quick sides like Easy Breakfast Potatoes and Air Fryer Bacon. Many of us want to have something for breakfast fast and these Egg Bites made in the oven are always easy to make, you will make them again and again!

These Mini Egg Bite recipes have been really popular- mostly thanks to those Starbucks Egg Bites. While those are pretty tasty, they never seemed quite as filling or as inexpensive as our Homemade Egg Bites. Making them at home allows us to load them with whatever ingredients we like.

Our Mini Muffin Egg Bites Recipe is very healthy, packed with protein, and way better for you than any Egg McMuffin or Starbucks menu item. Homemade restaurant foods are so much better for you. Make up enough of these and you’ve got tasty make-ahead breakfasts for a week!

Why you’ll love this simple Mini Egg Bites recipe

  • They are better than Starbucks Egg Bites. You can customize with your favorite omelette fillings, make them as cheesy as you want, and even keep them in the fridge or freezer to keep an easy grab and go breakfast on busy mornings!
  • These Breakfast Bites are great as a meal-prep breakfast recipe. Whip up a big batch of these in your favorite mini muffin tin and have breakfast sorted for days.
  • Every time I have made these, my kids loved them as much as I did!
  • We left plenty of room for you to customize this recipe to your heart’s content! We went with more “western omelette bites,” but you could make all sorts of different Veggie Bites or load these up with sausage or bacon.

Mini Egg Bites Ingredients

What’s great about these Mini Egg Bites is that they use classic breakfast ingredients that you probably already have on hand. To make them yourself, here’s all you need to make them:

Mini Egg Bites Ingredients
  • Whole Eggs
  • Milk – We used some whole milk for our Breakfast Egg Bites.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cheese – Cheddar shredded cheese is what we usually use. If you want yours to be more like the Starbucks Egg Bites, reach for a gruyere or a Monterey Jack Cheese instead.

You’ll also want to add some fillings to your Egg Muffins or else they’ll end up being a little plain. Here’s what we used this time around- just some classic omelette fillings:

  • Spinach
  • Green Onions
  • Bell Peppers – We ended up using some red bell pepper and green bell pepper. Remember to take the seeds out!
  • Ham
  • Tomatoes

See recipe card for quantities.

How to make Mini Egg Bites

Eggs in a mixing bowl.

Making our Mini Egg Bites isn’t too different from making a tasty omelette, egg casserole, or egg bake. Here’s all you have to do to:

  • We’ll start by just beating eggs. Into a large bowl, crack all your eggs and add your milk, salt, and pepper. Using a whisk or fork, beat the eggs, milk, and seasonings together until fully combined.
Diced veggies and ham for egg muffins.
  • Over on a cutting board, we’re going to prep our Egg Cup fillings. Chop or dice the spinach, green onions, bell peppers, ham, and tomatoes down to a fairly small size. We’ll need these small enough to fit into our muffin tins, after all.
Eggs added to muffin pan.
  • Now we can start assembling our Mini Breakfast Egg Bites! Grease a muffin tin, line with paper liners or spray with cooking spray. I have never tried these in a mini muffin pan, only a regular size muffin tin. Fill each muffin tin with your beaten egg mixture until about 1/3 of the way full.
Veggies and ham added to the eggs.
  • To add your fillings, we’d recommend adding 1 teaspoon of each filling into each muffin tin. Once you’ve added your omelette filling ingredients to your egg bites, top each muffin tin with more beaten egg mixture until about 2/3 of the way full.
Cooked egg bites in a muffin pan.
  • Now we can top each muffin with about 1 teaspoon of cheddar cheese before transferring the whole muffin tin to an awaiting 375 degree oven. Let your Mini Egg Bites bake for around 30-40 minutes when the tops begin to brown (bake time may vary) and the eggs have fully set. Serve your Baked Egg Bites warm or store in the fridge or freezer for later.


Really easy to make, right? Just in case you don’t have all these ingredients or don’t want to use some of them, there is some substitutions you can make in your own Mini Egg Muffin recipes. Here’s a few you can try:

  • Whole Eggs – Yeah, you can’t really make mini Egg Bites without eggs… but they don’t have to be whole eggs! If you’re worried about those added fats from egg yolks, you could use less yolks and more egg whites instead. A quick fast-and-loose rule you can use is that a whole egg is worth about 2 egg whites.
  • Milk – Whole milk is just what we had on hand and prefer using whenever we’re making stuff like omelettes and scrambled eggs. You don’t need to use whole milk or even a dairy milk if you want to make your egg bites dairy free! Use anything from 2% milk or skim milk to nut milks like almond milk or oat milk instead.
  • Salt and Pepper – Adding seasonings to your eggs isn’t required, but we would highly recommend it. But keep in mind that you don’t have to use just salt and pepper- there’s a whole world of seasonings out there you can sub in instead!


If you’re wondering what to put in egg bites, then don’t worry- we’ll cover some ideas you can use next time. Here’s just a few ideas you can run with:

  • Mini Bacon and Egg Bites – Few things pair together quite as well as bacon and eggs! So why not sub out the ham in this recipe for something like thick-cut bacon? For another breakfast protein, try making some Sausage Egg Bites.
  • Mini Egg Bites with Cottage Cheese – Another ingredient people will throw into these egg bites is some cottage cheese. This is going to add a little tang but it should mix well with the flavor of the eggs- you can even try making egg bites with feta if you want them even tangier. Just one great way to turn these into a super high protein Egg Bites recipe and some folks say it might be the secret ingredient to the Starbucks Egg Bites!
  • Veggie Egg Bites – We’ve covered all sorts of different fillings you can use in your own egg bites, but there’s so many more we haven’t mentioned- especially when it comes to vegetables. You can try making egg bites with potatoes or egg bites with mushrooms, just to name a couple examples. Use a dairy-free milk and drop the cheese for a completely dairy-free egg bite recipe.

Storage / Freezing

Storage: You can keep these Mini Egg muffins in the fridge if you have any leftovers. Let cool completely before transferring to an airtight container or ziploc bag and keeping in the fridge for 3-4 days. To reheat, we’d recommend using the microwave or the oven.

Freezing: Our Breakfast Eggs Bites will also hold up well in the freezer. Wrap the individual egg bites in plastic wrap and then keep wrapped in foil or in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 6 months for best texture/flavor. Allow frozen bites to thaw in the fridge overnight before following our previous reheating instructions.

Top Tips

If you have a silicone style muffin tin, grease and use it instead of metal. Silicone muffin tins seem to help keep the egg from sticking.
