How to Freeze Egg Muffins
In exactly one week, I will be having knee surgery. My husband will be taking over ALL of the day to day duties. While no one makes my life easier with the crazy schedules I deal with, I do want to make things a bit easier for him. Not only will he be working still, but he will be taking care of me, getting the kids to school and doing the other day to day jobs that I won’t be able to do for a bit.

One of those ways I want to help him out is by making a bunch of things and having it in the freezer ready to go. As you know, I am following Weight Watchers (WW) right now and I want to make sure I have my food ready so I can stay on plan while I am recovering. These egg muffins will help me stay on plan! Having the ability to freeze the egg muffins will really help us both out!
When you freeze egg muffins, you want to make sure you follow the steps below to a T. Not following them may give you results you don’t want (chewy, rubbery eggs. Blech).
- Allow your egg muffins to completely cool ALL THE WAY after cooking.
- Once cooled, individually wrap each egg muffin in plastic wrap and then wrap in tin foil.
- Freeze for up to 3 months.
Reheating Your Frozen Egg Muffins
I will be completely honest…I was very skeptical that the frozen egg muffins would reheat well. In fact, I almost asked my son to try it first before I did! However, they tasted excellent! I think the key is to reheat them while they are frozen. Simply unwrap the foil and plastic wrap and place in the microwave. Reheat for about 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Enjoy!
