I love anything involving eggs.

For instance, omelets, egg salad, hard boiled eggs, deviled eggs, poached eggs, eggs over easy…pretty much anything!

In addition, eggs are a super healthy source of protein.

So when I saw this delicious looking loaded eggs in a muffin tin recipe in my Cooking Light Magazine, I had to try it out.

I’ve made several of her recipes and they’re all so good!

Storing all of your best recipes for safe-keeping

Obviously, I’ve put this recipe in my 3-ring recipe binder to make again in the future.

By the way, this binder has been a game changer for me.

I used to print out recipes, fold them up and stuff them in a recipe box.

It was always overflowing.

This binder comes with 12 tab dividers and 20 sticker labels with categories and one large pocket.

The inside front and back cover include measurement equivalents and common substitutions.

I bought extra recipe card protectors and 3-ring binder sheet protectors to organize all of my recipes in my binder.

It’s SO much easier now to find my go-to recipes!

Eggs in a muffin tin Are Super Easy To Make

A little bit of preparation is required, but it’s so well worth it.

First, flatten out 6 slices of whole wheat bread with a rolling pin and cut the crusts off.

Then, cut each slice in half diagonally and then brush each side of the bread, using a basting brush, with a little bit of melted butter and place into muffin cups.
