Pico de Gallo Egg Bites for Breakfast
Pico de Gallo eggs bites are great for breakfast! Even better? They can be made ahead for a quick warm up. In fact they can be FROZEN and part of your freeze ahead meal plan; if you do freezer meals. And, if you don’t, you should try! It has made my life so much easier at any given moment.
‘Make ahead’ and ‘Frozen’ when it comes to any meal is like music to my ears. Those words make busy weekdays so much easier. When you are a parent, the best laid plans can get thrown out the window at given moment and those freezer meals have been my life saver on more occasions than I’d like to admit.
Note: You can use a muffin pan when making this recipe. I used a baking pan that’s actually meant for creating Whoopie pies. You can typically purchase one at your local craft store in the baking aisle.
These egg bites are delicious alone, on toast, a bagel or an English muffin; all toasted of course (wink). You can even add a little taco sauce for an added kick of flavor = yum, yum!
Here is the printable recipe for your convenience;
- 1 cup diced grape tomatoes
- ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
- ¼ cup green pepper, finely diced
- 4 eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Sliced pepper jack cheese
- Avocado, sliced
- Nonstick cooking spray
Coat your baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Evenly distribute the tomatoes, onions and peppers into the
bottom of each of the baking cups on the pan.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Evenly distribute the egg mixture by pouring it over the top
of the vegetables.
Bake for 15 minutes.
If serving immediately: Remove them from the pan. The eggs should come out of each cup easily with a mini spatula.
Add a slice of cheese to the top and let it melt. Top off the eggs with slices of avocados.
If preparing in advance: Let the egg rounds cool completely. Separate them with cut parchment paper. You can store them in the refrigerator for several days. Or, you can wrap each cooled egg round individually with parchment paper and place them in the freezer in a freezer bag or an airtight container.
Heating Frozen Egg Bites: Heat your egg bites on a microwave friendly dish in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes; until hot.

Note: If you use a mini muffin pan or whoopie pie pan this recipe yields 12 egg bites. If you use a regular sized muffin tin pan, this recipe will yield 6 egg bites.
