Egg Bites- Fridge Clean Out & Meal Prep
Have you ever bought WAY too many veggies one week and had no use for them before they went bad? That is a far too common occurrence in our household that I am not particularly proud of. But it is what it is and I am the type of person to seize an opportunity rather than just throw everything out. My typical grocery shopping days are on Mondays, so usually for Sunday breakfast and lunch, I am scouring the fridge trying to use up all out the produce that is on its way to turn brown. That's where these easy fridge cleanout, meal prep Egg Bites were born. Depending on what you put into them they can be keto, vegetarian, paleo, Whole 30, and all-around pretty dang nutritious!
This surplus usually happens when my husband has gone grocery shopping with me the week before. He has a big appetite and ambitions when he's at the store that doesn't really translate well into how he actually eats that week. We usually have two dozen eggs in the fridge at any given time. My husband, Daniel, has interesting eating habits. Some weeks he will literally eat all two dozen eggs, some weeks he won't have a single egg. but I always need to have eggs on hand. Because of that, and our usual abundance of produce, this recipe is the perfect storm for the usual chaos that goes on in our fridge.
Ingredient Suggestions for Egg Bites
The best part of these egg cups is you can really make them your own! Use whatever you have in your fridge! You can make 6 of one kind, 3 of another, and so on! Have fun with it and make it yours and to your dietary preference! Vegetarian? Awesome- you don't have to put meat into it! Dairy-free? Omit the cheese
Lunch Meat or leftover meat
There are SO MANY different ways to make these and I have done them all- let's walk through them! But the one thing that's consistent throughout each method-- use one egg per egg bite that you are making!
The Bowl Method:
Option 1: In a large bowl crack all your eggs, add salt, and whisk thoroughly until light and bubbly. Distribute 1/4 cup of egg mixture into greased muffin tin. Add ingredients to each cup individually and mix, this allows for a more even distribution of add on ingredients
Option 2: In a large bowl crack all your eggs, add salt, and whisk thoroughly until light and bubbly. Add all add-on ingredients to the bowl and mix. Distribute 1/4 cup of egg mixture with add-ons into greased muffin tin. This is a much quicker method but won't evenly distribute ingredients
In the pan Method:
Grease your muffin tin and crack one egg into each cup. With a fork, whisk the egg in each cup until light and bubbly. Add add on ingredients and salt to each cup and mix until distributed
