My friends and family all know it… I hate making lunch. I am not even exaggerating: lunch cuts right in the middle of my workday when I’m in the zone and totally focused. Plus, I always associate lunch with brown bag meals consisting of cold, soggy sandwiches and packaged snacks.

But boy… do I have a solution for you!

I’m always on the prowl for making lunch easier and more delicious. In fact, I did this with my Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles and now it’s a lunch that our family has on rotation.

Then I thought: why not prepare egg muffins for lunch? So during one of my lunch breaks, I looked through my fridge and found that I had ingredients that would make a wonderful flavor combination. A few moments later, my Green Onion and Cheese Egg Muffins came to life! Keep on reading to learn how to make a batch of your very own!

Tips for Making the best Green onion and cheese Egg Muffin cups:

Be sure your green onions are dry

One thing that many people often complain about egg muffins is that they get too spongy.

The sponginess comes from the moisture of different ingredients, so to avoid this, after rinsing and cleaning your green onions, dry them thoroughly before chopping and adding into the egg mixture.

You don’t necessarily need Paper Muffin Liners

If desired, you can skip the paper muffin liners for this recipe. To ensure little to no mess for your muffin tins, be sure to generously spray each section with cooking oil to prevent the egg muffins from sticking.

Can I have these for breakfast?

Absolutely! The best thing about egg muffins is that you can have them at any time of the day. I choose to have them for lunch because they’re delicious and easy to put together – which is ideal for my daily routine.
