I make these for hunting season. A LOT! They freeze very well, I under cook them, make biscuits then put them in between the biscuits wrap in foil. When I serve them I just reheat either in the oven for a crowd or in the microwave for single servings taking the foil off of course. I also use this recipe for leftover ham after the holidays.

This is such a base recipe, you can add your special herbs and fruits such as peaches or appricots to jazz it up. Or cook the cup and a English Muffin and have a special Egg Mc without having to go to Mac.’s, with and added bonus. It’s heathier to. I’ll defenately put this to good, using it for morning pick me ups.
As far as freezing or refrigerating it for later, I would just undercook the ones you want to put aside, place them in a airtight container or resealable baggie and freeze. Then pull them out and reheat them in a microwave to complete the cooking process. If you do this don’t break the yolk of the egg since the whites cook faster and it will leave the yolk soft for the reheat.

I’m wondering the same thing as yellowwick…I wonder how they reheat? I’ve been toying with the same idea, using egg substitute and bacon bits, on a biscuit.

How do these do if made in advance and then warmed up later?

What a fun little idea! I loved these little breakfast treats! I ended up using turkey breast a mozzarella, because that is what I had in the house, and it was enjoyable all the same!
