Hey everyone, it’s Sabrina from Dinner, then Dessert again. Today I’m sharing these awesome Southwestern Avocado Egg Muffins that taste like your favorite diner specialty omelet with almost none of the work.

Southwestern Avocado Egg Muffins can be made to suit your tastes too, even if you don’t like southwestern flavors you can just as easily swap out ingredients! (A favorite of ours is crispy hash brown rounds, bacon and cheddar baked into a cup)

Southwestern Avocado Egg Muffin ingredients.

Here are some other fun flavor combinations you can try:

  • ham, green bell pepper, onion and cheddar
  • spinach mushroom and white cheddar
  • chili, corn and black beans with cheddar
  • ham, swiss and a small squirt of dijon mustard in the eggs
  • spicy sausage, red bell pepper, onions and provolone

You can make these in giant batches (I own a dozen muffin tins from being a private chef) and bake three trays at a time. They’re great for crowd or you can cool them then add them to a freezer safe container for future breakfasts.

P.S. these are great inside a toasted English muffin for a quick breakfast.

    OMG!!! These are fabulous! I didn’t have any fresh cilantro, used dried and it still works. I also topped it with a Guaca De Gallo that I purchased from Fresh Thyme and it tastes so fresh. This is our new breakfast….

    Made these this past weekend and I really enjoyed them. Only change was using Rotel instead of tomato (had an open can from dinner). Excellent recipe!!! Thanks for sharing!
