Muffin tin egg cups. Yup. They’re perfect for any time of the day, if you ask me. On the go in the mornings? In a rush during lunch? Thinking of a quick way to make something healthy and delicious for Sunday brunch? These little egg cups are so easy and versatile. You can make them ahead, and store them in the fridge for a few days. Simply pop them in the microwave for a minute or two and you’re out the door.
You can fill these egg cups with any of your favorite deli meats, veggies, and cheeses. Delicious healthy bites. You can’t beat that!
I usually keep leftover diced up veggies in Ziploc bags in the fridge. Sometimes I go overboard with the chopping and dicing for a recipe that calls for less. It’s even easier to put these egg cups together if you’ve already got that part down. Probably the most time consuming part (really only a few minutes) of this recipe is figuring out which veggies you want, and dicing them up. I make a variety of egg cups at once, but you can stick with one kind at a time. It just depends on how adventurous you are with ingredients.
This is also one of those recipes you can enjoy with the kids. They can be a part of the process while getting them to eat some veggies–winning!
