Every now and again, there are days when we don’t feel like making a big deal out of breakfast. Now, we know that might upset some people, because we know that meal is taken very seriously… but what we mean is we just don’t always have the time to whip up a whole spread (or dirty up and then wash all the dishes). When we’re in that just-need-a-simple-morning-snack mood, these Loaded Breakfast Muffins are how we get our fix! These warm, golden-brown bites bring lots of fruity flavors for a fantastic start to your day! We love to smother them with a little butter and eat them alongside a fried egg for a simple breakfast that is still quite tasty. Loaded Breakfast Muffins help uncomplicate your morning in the most delicious way! So, give them a try! There’s nothing wrong with a simple start!
