These spinach and feta breakfast muffins are the perfect breakfast for grabbing just as you run out the door.

We all have those mornings where there is just no time for making breakfast. You grab your coffee and head out only to find yourself starving just an hour or two later. But with a little prep, you never have to have one of those mornings again!

Savory breakfast muffins are a fast and easy way to get out of the house in the morning. They are a great source of protein and just downright delicious.

In fact, every time I make these turkey based muffins, I wonder why I don’t make them more often. They really do make busy mornings much simpler and get you off to the right start with plenty of protein.

BREAKFAST MUFFINS:

Don’t be afraid to make a batch of breakfast muffins over the weekend. They come together pretty quickly (usually 20 minutes at most) and then bake while you do any number of things around the house. You can easily freeze them, so making a big batch is a bonus because they won’t go bad in the fridge after after a few day.

To thaw, just grab them straight out of the freezer and either microwave for a minute or two, or let it defrost on your way to work. Either way, it’s a healthy, protein-packed breakfast that will keep you full until lunchtime.

HOW TO FREEZE:
You can pack these in either an air-tight container, or a zipper-top plastic bag. Just be sure to squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible as you close it up. These will last really well in your freezer for up to six months.

    No, it’s a spice mix you get in the spice aisle at the store, like Italian herb seasoning or pumpkin pie spice.

  2. graciouspantry says:

    It’s a spice blend you get in the spice aisle at the grocery store. It’s just herbs.

  4. graciouspantry says:

    I just break and separate eggs.

  5. graciouspantry says:

    It’s raw. It cooks when you bake the mixture in the baking papers/foils.

  6. graciouspantry says:

    I put mine in muffin tins. It was easier to pack the foils that way.

  7. Is the spinach thawed and drained or do you use the spinach liquid in the recipe?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I never thawed it. I just mixed it in frozen.

  8. Is two cups frozen spinach approximately two boxes?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      That would depend on the size of the box.

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Hmmm….. I’m not sure. You are the first to say anything about it. Are you using the little button on my recipe pages or the Pin It button in your toolbar?

  10. graciouspantry says:

    I got the regular stuff at Trader Joe’s. That’s all I know. Sorry….

  11. graciouspantry says:

    I mix it in frozen.

  12. graciouspantry says:

    My pleasure! Glad you enjoyed them!

  13. graciouspantry says:

    Awesome! Enjoy them!

  14. graciouspantry says:

    If you prefer to use whole eggs, that’s fine. In all my recipes, I always use 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg. So the reverse would be true as well. Hope you enjoy them!

  15. graciouspantry says:

    I would just break up the spinach and measure it. But I’m guessing it would be about 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups per box. Just a guess though…

  16. graciouspantry says:

    You can, but you’ll have to guestimate how much. I didn’t measure with fresh spinach.

  17. Can you use eggs instead of egg whites?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Sure! 1 egg for every 2 egg whites is how I do it with my recipes. Not very scientific, but it works for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. graciouspantry says:

    Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I think I am going to make this into a meatloaf, use fresh spinach and wilt it first in the pan with some fresh garlic. Sounds yummy!

  20. graciouspantry says:

    Glad you liked them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. graciouspantry says:

    I hope you both enjoy it!

  22. How do you thaw them and reheat them?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Just thaw in the fridge. In the morning, take them out of the freezer and leave them in the fridge for the next day’s breakfast. You can always microwave to warm them up.

  23. Do you need to use an actual mixer for this recipe, or can you blend/mix by hand?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mix by hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Sounds delish, do you think it would work as a loaf instead of muffins?
    thanks

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      You could try it, but you’d have to adjust the cooking time.

  25. Just wondering if anyone has an idea on how long they last frozen in the freezer. I like to prep and thaw a lot of my meals and I hope I can add these to the rotation!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amy – 6 months would probably be the limit.

  26. These look so awesome! I’m making them tomorrow!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jessie – Let me know how they turn out!
