Baked Egg Cups
Some people have told me that breakfast is the hardest meal to consistently eat.
Between stumbling out of bed, getting the kids ready for school, yourself ready for work, letting the dog out, letting the dog back in, cleaning up the mess that was just made, hoping that the sound you just heard wasn’t the cat knocking over the glass vase because no one is paying attention to him..
Mornings can be chaotic.
Here is a high protein, vegetable loaded, customizable, make ahead, convenient, heat and eat breakfast that I have been frequently making lately:
Loaded Baked Egg Cups.
Now, you are probably thinking “Reheated eggs?!”
Yes! It works. They are good.
I used to work at a fast food chain restaurant and all the eggs started frozen, in sheets of scrambled yellow. We would pull them out of the freezer, let them thaw in the cooler, and once they were thaw they had a shelf life of at least 3 days.
So yes, you can bake, refrigerate, heat, and eat your own egg cups.
Best part about these is that you can customize them the way you want!
Add in any diced up veggies
Add in some pre cooked meats
- Turkey (ground or deli)
Even add in a sprinkle of cheese.
Bake until the eggs are set and take them out of the pan to cool.
Top with your favorite herbs and spices. Maybe a dash of hot sauce or some avocado and eat right away!
Then save the rest in these meal prep containers for another morning.
