Make ahead scrambled eggs save your time and sanity

As a busy mom of three, I often find myself skipping breakfast or meals in general. When life gets busy, my needs tend to fall to the wayside.

This recipe for make-ahead scrambled eggs helps with my lack of eating habits. It also helps you get out of the house on busy mornings (hello 3 kids 5 and under who all need to eat).

I love that this recipe is customizable, so I can make these baked eggs with whatever I have on hand. You can even add toppings to only half. Or make half of them vegetarian.

Caring for ourselves is important and can be done in little increments of time. I made these make-ahead scrambled eggs while I was doing my slow cooker freezer session the other day (14 crockpot freezer meals in 1 day!).

You can totally prep and bake these eggs muffins while doing other things in the kitchen – or around the house.Then you’ll have no excuse to skip breakfast!

Sometimes, I will prep these make-ahead scrambled eggs for the freezer right alongside a batch of freezer-friendly breakfast burritos and freezer friendly breakfast sandwiches.

Variety is the spice of life, after all.
