Rushing out the door and forgetting breakfast is a non-issue with these green chile egg pop and gos! These egg bites make skipping breakfast nearly “impoppable”. Pop a couple in your mouth or in your kid’s lunch box and make a quick exit out the door.

Most mornings usually involve rushing to get the kiddos off to school and yourself out the door. It’s hard to find time to feed yourself and the family a well-balanced breakfast. My egg bites are a quick and simple recipe that you can make ahead of time and keep on hand for those busy morning routines. Just grab a few, pop them in the microwave, or eat cold, and you’re good to go. Bite-sized pop and gos are the way to go!

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
