Thanks to Applegate for sponsoring this post!
We babysat some backyard chickens last week, dropping by their coop every day to feed them and say hello. The perk of this job: Lots of fresh eggs!
Luckily, both of my kids love eggs. I finally got smart during the school year and taught my 9 year old how to cook eggs for himself and his little brother. But I love the idea of having something to make ahead for busy mornings, especially with summer day camps approaching.
These Scrambled Egg Muffins can be modified based on what your family likes best. Using the base of eggs and milk, you could add spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, crumbled bacon, or whatever you have on hand. My kids are fans of sausage, so I used some of the new Applegate Breakfast Sausage Patties, which I quickly cooked in the microwave and chopped up. As with all Applegate products, the sausage comes from animals that were humanely raised and not given hormones or antibiotics.
