Have you heard of #Weggsday yet?
It’s the new fun food day in town and it’s all about eating eggs on a Wednesday. Cause we can all use some mid-week deliciousness, right?
And it doesn’t get easier than the perfect little nutrient bombs that are the humble egg.
They are easy to make, affordable and just scrumptious.
They’re also high in choline, packed with high-quality protein and they’ve got so many nutrients in there too.
Plus, eggs are super versatile! You can enjoy them so many ways.
And I hope you don’t limit your eggs to breakfast time. Oh no. Let’s put an egg on it and enjoy eggs anytime of day. (A fried egg on leftovers is one of my most favorite things.)
BUT, since I know most of us do love eggs at breakfast, today I wanted to share some easy make-ahead egg breakfasts.
Because I don’t exactly have time to make a hot breakfast during the week.
I’m up and on deadline for my job as a health and nutrition editor at 6:30 a.m. every morning. That’s also when my kids get up to eat, get dressed and get ready for school before my husband whisks them out the door at 7:15.
And even if your school is currently in your living room, I’m guessing you don’t have a lot of time -- or energy -- for making breakfast in the morning most days either.
So, let’s make some things ahead and then we just have to pull them out and reheat. Way more do-able. It makes mornings so much less stressful, and that’s always a good way to start the day.
Here are the 5 recipes we are featuring today, with a couple of bonus variations thrown in there.
- Egg Muffins
- Freezer Breakfast Burritos
- Baked Hard-Boiled Eggs
- Cheesy Baked Eggs
- Veggie Frittata
Keep reading for more on those delicious ideas and for links to the recipes.

Final thing I’ll leave you with is a little home state pride fun fact. (You know I’m a nerd and love this stuff!)
North Carolina is BIG in egg production. We have 9 million hens raised in egg farms in the state that produce 7.5 million eggs a day! That’s about one bird per person. 😳
So I guess I come by my love of eggs honest.
I hope you find some new favorite breakfast recipes to try here.
Oh, and do share your egg creations with the #Weggsday hashtag on social media to join in on the fun.

Make ahead egg breakfasts
Here are 5 healthy breakfasts featuring eggs that you can make ahead of time and heat up and have ready to go in the morning.
Breakfast egg muffins are loaded with bacon, spinach and cheese and baked in the oven for a delicious warm breakfast that’s perfect for brunch or for meal prep. They freeze and reheat great!
(I've even included TWO different ways to make these.)
Plus, you can get creative with your add-ins to customize these however you like!
Freezer breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs, black beans, cheese and salsa are a warm, filling and delicious breakfast that can be made in advance and reheated as needed. Add extra fillings or toppings and enjoy a stress-free breakfast!
Baked hard boiled eggs are super easy to make, completely hands off and they come out perfect! Adjust the cook time to your desired degree of doneness and have hard boiled eggs on hand to use with breakfast, for toasts and even to have for egg salad, grain bowls and more.

I'm sorry but I clicked on this article to get recipes, not page after page after ad to finally give up. That meme about having to wade through the author's life story in and effort to find the recipe? Here you go.
Hmm, it's all on one single web page and I didn't write a life story here. Just included some helpful information about eggs, cooking with eggs and the egg recipes. The entire round-up is under 800 words. But I'm sorry if the scrolling was too much for you to get to some free recipes. A cookbook might be a better fit!
