I first tried a breakfast muffin in the lunchbox for my kids in 2020. Ever since, it’s been a massive hit. I just make sure I fry the egg hard, and use an insulated case. It doesn’t take me very long to do this and I have a bit of a process.
Step 1: Toast English muffin. Unless the child would prefer it un-toasted.
Step 2: Fry egg well done.
Step 3: Put egg together with a combo of ingredients I have available or to my children’s tastes.
- tomato/BBQ sauce
- slice of cheese
Below are some of the lunchbox I have made for my kids including the breakfast muffin. I’ll include under each image the different elements.
