Mini Egg Bake

This easy (and perfectly portioned) egg bake is the perfect breakfast recipe for a casual weekend morning or pre-made weekday meal. I love these egg bakes because they can be made in advanced or savored right out of the oven, and best of all, they can be completely personalized to your preferences!

You could even create an egg bake station next time you’re hosting a brunch or planning a meal for your family!
