School is in session, and mornings can be extra hectic. Why not make breakfast a little easier on yourself and your family?
This Healthy T recipe makes 6 Healthy Make-Ahead Egg McMuffins. You could even double the recipe and make a dozen at once.
I put a healthier twist on the McDonald’s classic Egg McMuffin by using light, whole wheat English muffins and egg beaters. This recipe takes only about 5 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook. After that, you can toss the McMuffins into zip-tight plastic bags to freeze them for another day!
Note: You will need a muffin tin, zip-tight plastic bags and cooking spray for this Healthy T recipe.
Did I mention you cook the egg patties in the oven?? Super easy, and less messy!
