Egg Bites

I feel like the hardest meal for me to eat a day is breakfast.

Unless it is on the weekend, I really do not have time to cook a hearty breakfast, which usually means cereal, yogurt, or oatmeal.

These reheatable egg bites are a perfect solution to not having enough time to eat anything of substance during the week. A lot of times, I will make these on a Sunday evening and we will eat on them throughout the rest of the week.

Egg bites are so diverse, as you can put anything you want inside of them! Feel free to half this recipe for a lesser amount.
