Breakfast Egg Muffins

Hello Lovely,

It's MONDAY! We're back to work with a whole new week of challenges and expectations. I've decided to dub this week Recipe Week on the blog, because I got busy this past weekend, trying out new recipes to give to you for you to make for your family. And oh my goodness, do I have a fabulous new breakfast item for you!

This was one of those moments when I genuinely overlooked which ingredients I actually had in my fridge. I thought this would have been the easiest of all of the recipes I attempted but underwent many changes. For starters, I didn't have potatoes to make the hash brown crust, nor did I have bacon, so I had to forgo those features and make a vegetarian egg muffin. Despite the changes, this was still a crowd pleaser! I'll still give you guys the original recipe I planned on using. Get the recipe below:
