To-Go Egg Cups

I rarely get up early enough to make breakfast, so I’m ALL about the make ahead on-the-go breakfast trends.

These egg cups are my favorite because you can use the egg base and add anything you want! It’s also a delicious savory way to get in protein when you want something more hearty than a smoothie or protein shake! 

Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 330 g Liquid Egg Whites (about 7 egg whites if not using liquid)
  • 3 Whole Eggs
  • 8 Slices Turkey Bacon (feel free to sub regular bacon, won’t be as healthy obv.)
  • 2 Cups Baby Spinach
  • 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast (gives that cheesy flavor)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lay out strips of turkey bacon. Cook bacon in the oven for 15-20 minutes depending on desired crispness.
  3. While the bacon is cooking, whisk the egg whites, eggs and nutritional yeast together in a medium bowl.
  4. Do a rough chop of the baby spinach and mix it in to the bowl or you could add it to each cup individually if you prefer.
  5. Grease the muffin tin with cooking spray before you add the egg mixture. This step is VERY IMPORTANT, you don’t want your eggs sticking to the pan.
  6. Pour an even amount of egg mixture to each cup. I recommend transferring to a measuring cup or bowl with a spout for easy pouring.
  7. When the bacon is done, remove from baking sheet to a cutting board and wait for it to be cool enough to handle. Drop down the oven temperature to 375°F.
  8. Chop up the bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and sprinkle evenly throughout each cup.
  9. The egg cups are ready to go in the oven for about 15 minutes, until they are no longer runny/jiggly. Keep an eye on them as eggs can overcook quickly.
  10. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes. Use an oven mit if the pan is still hot and pop them out by scraping around the edges with a knife. (Should be easy if you greased the pan properly)
  11. Store in a tupperware container in the fridge and take them out as needed for an easy breakfast in the morning!
  12. Reheat in the microwave for about a minute and eat them plain, top with hot sauce or sandwich one between an english muffin!
