Protein Breakfast Muffins

These make-ahead, on-the-go breakfast muffins are perfect for the whole family!


  • 1 container flaky biscuits
  • 1/23/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/41/2 cup red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup ham, cooked and chopped
  • 5 eggs, beaten


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Separate the biscuits and cut each biscuit in half. Press them into the bottom of greased muffin cups and up the sides. Sprinkle about a little cheese )about 1 tsp) in the bottom of each of the biscuits; set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet and add the onion and red pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the onion and red pepper is softened. Add the ham; mix. Then add the eggs (whisk them first) and cook until set, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Divide the egg mixture between the muffin cups and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. You can add even more if you like it extra cheesy.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on the edge.
