The secret to making these flavorful breakfast egg muffins is adding a bit of salsa to the mix. Of course, adding a dollop of the salsa on top of the egg muffins is essential — seriously the best! However, what makes these breakfast muffins stand out and taste better than any egg muffin you have ever had is the salsa added to the egg muffins!

ingredients needed to make egg muffins: spinach, cheese, fresh garlic, eggs, LaVictoria Salsa, chopped peppers, sliced sausage

Here’s What You Need To Make These Tasty Breakfast Eggs Muffins

  • Eggs: You’ll need 12 large organic eggs or 10 organic jumbo eggs
  • Salsa: I use LA VICTORIA® Suprema Salsa medium heat option. You can use whichever salsa you prefer.
  • Cheese: I recommend using queso fresco, cheddar, or feta cheese
  • Veggies: Spinach, Bell Peppers (any color)
  • Seasonings: Fresh Garlic Minced, Sea Salt, and Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
  • Sausage: Use your favorite breakfast sausage. I used Spicy Chicken Sausage. (Make sure to cut the sausage into bite-sized pieces so that it cooks thoroughly in the egg muffins.)

How To Make Egg Muffins

  1. Add the eggs to a large bowl and whisk well
  2. Whisk in the minced garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes
  3. Whisk in the salsa
  4. Lightly oil each opening of a 12-capacity muffin tin. Fill each opening with spinach, chopped peppers, and sausage. 
  5. Pour the egg mixture to fill each muffin tin opening. Be sure to leave ¼ inch space at the top as the egg muffins will expand while they cook.
  6. Add in the cheese. Bake the egg muffins for 15-20 minutes, or until set.
  7. Let the egg muffins cool for 2 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan. 
  8. Top with a dollop of salsa and enjoy!

Storage and Reheating

Store your egg muffin cups in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Rewarm in the microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until warmed through.

Customizations and Variations

  • ADD DIFFERENT MEAT. You can add chopped bacon. simply cut the bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and add it to the egg muffins before baking.
  • ADD DIFFERENT VEGGIES. Chopped onions and jalapenos are a great option. Some people also like to add chopped broccoli or mushroom.
  • TRY DIFFERENT CHEESE: Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, Parmesan Cheese, and Cheddar Cheese are great options.
  • MAKE IT VEGAN. You can use JUST Egg to make these egg muffins vegan. Use alternative meat and cheese as well.
