After cleaning out the fridge last week, I was able to make entirely new meals to save what was left of my fruits and veggies.  It seems like there’s always an item or two that ends up spoiling from neglect, but I’ve become so much better at buying just what’s necessary and making meals from leftovers.  Buy just what you need so there’s less spoilage.  What a concept!  

There was a bag of baby spinach that I needed to use up and didn’t want to make a salad (we already had a bunch of salad kits in the fridge). Then, I was thinking about making an omelet.  But the idea of breakfast muffins came to me.  I love breakfast, but I hate making breakfast in the morning.  I want something I can grab and go when I wake up so I can get on with the rest of my day!

Egg Breakfast Muffins with Spinach and Swiss Cheese

These egg breakfast muffins are an easy way to create a new meal out of ingredients that are just sitting in the fridge.  They’re also perfect for meal prepping!  Add one egg muffin to a container with a side of fruit and you’ve got yourself a quick and healthy breakfast!

Grease a 6-muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or butter.  Then, beat the eggs in a large bowl and add in the cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and spinach (first sauteed in a pan).  Divide the egg mixture between the muffin cups and bake.  So easy!
