Back-to-School can turn even the best planned mornings into chaos! Especially around getting everyone fed and out the door. That’s why I love these 3 Mini Egg Stratas in a Muffin Tin. I find a muffin tin breakfast is a Mom’s best friend. You can make so many fun things in them! The ideas are endless!
I love his idea for Back-to-School because you can make a big batch of these on Sunday and freeze for the week ahead! You can also switch up the toppings to allow everyone their favorite combos. It’s really easy since they all use the same batter, so just add the toppings as you like, and then pour the batter on top!
These work really well in a tulip muffin papers. In fact I think they are better that way because it will allow for a bigger muffin and will prevent the egg from spilling over as it cooks. You can find them here online (this link goes to Amazon where I am an affiliate partner)
As the months turn colder there’s nothing quite like a warm breakfast and let’s face it how much oatmeal can one really eat? There’s something about the crispy bread, the cheesy topping and custardy egg underneath that just makes these such a winner for a breakfast on the go! They also freeze and re-heat beautifully too!
