How Many Calories Are In An Egg Muffin?
Egg muffins are one of my new favorite go to breakfast options.
They are easy to make, can be low in calorie, packed with protein, you can eat them on the go, and you can make them ahead of time. I really see no downside to breakfast egg muffins.
I mean what a brilliant breakfast option! Plus if you are counting calories egg muffins do no have to put you over the edge.
Calories will vary based on the recipe. However, you can have an extremely low calorie egg muffin that combines eggs with egg whites and uses low fat ingredients like vegetables, resulting in egg muffins being as low as 50 calories each.
However, many egg muffin recipes, while still low calorie are probably closer to 150 calories.
If you want to keep egg muffins to as low in calories as possible either omit things like cheese and bacon or just be very mindful of the amount put in the recipe.
These buffalo chicken breakfast egg muffins are low calorie. Buffalo sauce, depending on the brand can have little to no calories and chicken while being a great source in protein, does not have to add to many unwanted calories to the dish.
How Long Can I Keep Egg Muffins In The Fridge?

How Do You Get Baked On Eggs Out Of Muffins Tins?
Okay so now that I have hopefully gotten you excited about Buffalo chicken breakfast egg muffins, how do you get them out? Or, how do you clean the muffin tins?
Don’t worry, neither has to be a huge task.
How To Get Egg Muffins Out Of Muffin Tins:
Make sure to grease the muffin tin ahead of time with cooking spray.
- Let egg muffins cool for a minute or so before getting them out.
- Cut around the edges of the cooled egg muffins with a knife.
Note: Usually just greasing the muffin tin and letting the egg muffins cool, results in eggs coming out without a problem. Cut around the edges as a last result.
Sometimes if you have had trouble getting the egg muffins out, there may be some egg stuck onto the pan. Don’t worry, this easy to make dish does not have to leave you with a difficult mess afterwards.
How To Clean Stuck On Eggs:
Baking soda isn’t just for baking. Make a paste with it and clean.
- Soak muffin tin in cold water for a few hours before cleaning.
- Use salt as a cleaning agent.
- Soak in hot water with white vinegar to make cleaning easier.
If you’re still having trouble scrubbing your tin, it could just be that the poor thing must be laid to rest because it has too much build up from over the years! Simply order this amazing silicone one from amazon right here, and make your life easier! All you have to do is pop the muffins right out with your thumbs!
