My favorite Egg Cups

I love eggs for dinner.

Quick, easy, healthy.

Customizable for what I have in the fridge.

Good for re-heating for leftovers, I love taking them for lunch the next day.

My favorite egg cups are a variation of this recipe:

#1. Day old bread (I love buying day old bread from Jimmy John’s – you can get a whole loaf for $0.49!) –> cut into cubes.


#2. Sausage. Whatever you like – maple sausage, low-fat, turkey, veggie sausage. Cooked and cut up into bit sized chunks. You could also sub in bacon. Or leave it out all together.


#3. Add veggies. Whatever you have in the fridge will do. I made some last week with leftover roasted broccoli. I also like using the pepper/onion frozen veggie mix.

#4. Whisk a bunch of eggs together. Again, you can do the whole egg or egg whites. And pour over top of bread/sausage/veggie mixtures.


#5. Top with cheese. I love cream cheese – it adds a creamy texture to the egg cups. But you can use any cheese you want!



#6. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes or until eggs are set and cooked thru.


#6. Dinner is ready!


Do you cook with eggs? What’s your favorite combination?

      Oh man, that would be so awesome. I’ll have to talk to my co-workers about doing something like that!

  5. Yum! I love egg cups, but I think I need a new muffin tin because mine is a nightmare to clean after baking eggs in it!

  6. These are so cute! I love eggs with creamy cheese, spinach, and tomatoes. And then I put hot sauce on them, because I adore spicy everything 🙂 Thanks for the easy recipe!
