I want to make up some egg muffins, which are scrambled eggs, with veggies etc and freeze them to have easy quick breakfasts. All the reading I've done says that when frozen the eggs lose texture and taste, yet I've had frozen egg sandwiches that taste fine. Does anyone know the best way to freeze scrambled eggs?

I don't, sorry. I can't imagine why you'd want to unless you're planning to let them just thaw out. You can fresh cook a scrambled egg in the same amount of time it takes to microwave a frozen one. Maybe pre-chop the veggies and put them in the fridge to save some prep time in the morning?

The egg muffins I want to make require twenty minutes bake time, plus cooking bacon or sausage and veggies.

You could just buy the frozen scrambled egg 'patties'. As I recall when I did that several years ago for sausage breakfast biscuits the eggs tasted fine ( the frozen sausage patties did not ).

The nice thing about the store bought ones is that they are perfectly formed so they work really well for home assembled breakfast sandwiches.

You could also microwave your scrambled eggs fresh. It is quick and you can set the cup/bowl in the sink to soak for easy clean up when you get home.

Reddarin thanks for the tips, I'm not a big fan of microwaved eggs. They taste funny to me.
I'm going to do some experimenting and see what works since I can't find an exact way to go about freezing these. I'll post and let folks know what works. Smile

I've frozen egg muffins before and they were fine. I just microwaved them in the morning and they may have had a little bit different texture, but were still good. You can also put them in the refrigerator the night before and let them thaw so they aren't completely frozen when you reheat them. I also heated them on a paper towel so the moisture kind of soaked out on the towel. Experimenting is the best then you'll figure out what you like the best. Smile

Maybe we are approaching this from the wrong angle.

You need breakfast for a 5 day work week, right?

You could cook up enough eggs for 5 portions and just refrigerate 3 portions and freeze the other two.

Or you could cook up enough eggs for 3 portions and refrigerate them, then cook up the other two portions the night the 3rd portion is used and refrigerate them.

Or you could just see how cooking each portion the night before using it works if that isn't too inconvenient.

Get a muffin pan and bake the eggs for 20 minutes (I think at 350). Spray the pan, scramble the egg and add your peppers or whatever and bake away. Toast your english muffins, then put the egg in the muffin and wrap tightly. Freeze. Let thaw overnight and microwave for 30 seconds. They taste fine. I do this with vegan sausage patties- I cook them and then put in english muffin and microwave later in the day.

While eggs are easy to make, I'm sure a lot of you are like me, pressed for time in the morning and can't imagine spending an extra 2 minutes preparing breakfast in the morning. Also, I don't eat breakfast that early in the morning, so it has to be something I can easily put together at work. Hope this info helps you or someone else.

NcNole...just tried your idea. Worked beautifully!!! My husband thanks you too. Now he can grab a quality breakfast on the way out instead of crap in his break room.
