While dear hubby and I are long past rushing out the door to get the kids to school or us to jobs on time, there are still instances when we need a quick breakfast or snack on the go.

When we have leftover ham, these Denver omelet-inspired healthy cheesy egg bites are top of the list for having on hand. They are perfect for reheating for a quick breakfast or snack. This recipe is for our favorite variation of egg bites. But you can certainly customize the flavor to make them suit your tastes.

Looking for inspiration?

Make creating these egg bites a family affair. Kids (or grandkids) can have fun helping by filling the individual muffin cups with the ingredients chosen. Make them as loaded or as simple as you want.

A few ideas you might like to try are:

  • Ham and pineapple
  • Chopped sun-dried tomato and spinach
  • Pre-cooked sausage and cheddar cheese
  • Broccoli and ham
  • Chives and feta, or
  • Kid-friendly pepperoni with mozzarella or cottage cheese

How to Eat Egg Bites

Enjoy them hot from the oven, or eat after they’re cool enough to handle as you head out the door. They are also great for packing into an insulated cooler, keeping cool on ice for a quick bite after scheduled fasting labs, taking along on road trips, or serving as pre-game-time snacks for kids.

How to Keep Leftover Egg Bites

Because these egg bites can be refrigerated for up to five days or frozen for up to one month, they’ve become one of our favorite breakfast and healthy snack recipes.

Save in the Fridge:

  • Cool completely, cover, and save in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.

How to Freeze Egg Bites:

  • To freeze, let the egg bites cool to room temperature, remove them from the silicone cups, and wrap each egg bite individually in a square of plastic wrap. Place the wrapped portions in a large zipper freezer bag or another freezer-safe container and remove as much air as possible before sealing and freezing.

To Reheat from Frozen:

  • Thaw overnight in the fridge and remove from any wrapping. Then re-heat in the microwave on high for about 60-90 seconds (1200 watts) or in a toaster oven or conventional oven (from frozen) for about 8-10 minutes at 375°F. Cooking times may vary depending on the appliance. Be careful not to overheat, so they don’t become rubbery.

They’re great any way you fill, keep, reheat, or eat them!

Hi, I'm Kymberley, the creator of GfreeDeliciously and the Amazing, Glorious Journey Programs. I pray that my work will inspire you to honor your body through God and Good Food from the inside out, all while enjoying your Amazing, Glorious Journey!

Take a peek at the behind GfreeDeliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
