Little Egg Cups!

Little Egg Cups
These little egg cups are going to change your life!  Not only are they simple to whip up (and versatile too!), but you can pop them in the freezer and then in the morning, pull as many as you like out, microwave them for 30 seconds and bam…your family is fed!  I used chopped turkey bacon and green onions but you can use whatever you love…browned sausage, turkey, pepperoni and any combination of veggie you like.  Bonus, you can omit the meat and veggies altogether and just keep this a simple egg and cheese cup.  Your kids will love this!
This recipe makes 12 breakfast cups.
Shopping List
12 eggs, lightly beaten
about 6-8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
about 4 green onions, chopped
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, bacon, green onions and cheese.  Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full of your mixture.
Bake 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool about 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin and either serving immediately or freezing.

    How fabulous! I need these for busy mornings for sure!

    I’m always wanting eggs in the morning but sometimes don’t have time! Going to make these this week! I made your instant pot chicken chili last night and it was a hit!! So yummy!

    If frozen what are the directions for reheating ?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 12, 2019 at 7:24 am

      Like 30 seconds in the microwave. I wrap them in a paper towel. Easy!

  • Shelby February 12, 2019 at 7:38 am

    They’re like the Starbucks egg bites! Can’t wait to try them!

  • Addison February 12, 2019 at 8:13 am

    These little egg cups are such a great idea for busy mornings! I love that there are so many different options for add-ins!

    Have you made the Starbucks Eggs Sous Vide in your instant pot? They’re amazing. I make a double batch at the beginning of the week. There are a variety of recipes out there.

    • Jen February 12, 2019 at 10:55 am

      Ohhh how did you make those? I would love to know. Those are my favorite item at Starbucks!

      • Jessica R Tribbett February 13, 2019 at 8:00 am

        @Jen – I’ve used this recipe. I double the batch and use whatever veggies I have (usually spinach). Mix in my blender and pour into the silicone egg bite molds. I stack 2 molds at a time on my trivet (you can buy them on Amazon). I keep them in the fridge and zap 4 at a time wrapped in a paper towel in the microwave for 35-45 seconds. https://foodieandwine.com/starbucks-sous-vide-egg-bites-roasted-red-pepper/

    I have made this a few times for the exact reasons you mention; however, what is your trick to get them to separate from the cupcake liners more easily?! I am wondering if silicon cups would be better. Have you tried that?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 12, 2019 at 9:14 am

      I don’t have any silicone cups, but I bet they would!

      • Jen February 12, 2019 at 10:57 am

        I have tried making these both ways in a wrapper and also silicone pan. Neither has worked well for me. My husband actually asked me not to make them since the egg was so hard to get off the pan and the cup cake wrappers there was so much left on the wrapper. I have tried the silicone pan plain and sprayed too. Hmmm I want these to work so bad!

          Oh man! I hate hearing that!!

  • Leslie Steele February 12, 2019 at 9:12 am

    Hello Yum! I am hooked on the sous vide egg bites from Starbucks and these remind me of those yummy little guys. I’m thinking sun dried tomatoes would be a delicious addition.

  • Janaea February 12, 2019 at 10:42 am

    Shay…I saw this first thing this morning and made them. Felt like a superhero mom with a hot and healthy, on the go breakfast that they LOVED! Thank you!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 12, 2019 at 1:50 pm

      Yay!!!!! This makes me super happy!!

  • Jennifer February 12, 2019 at 11:09 am

    Do you just throw them in a ziplock bag before freezing?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 12, 2019 at 1:49 pm

      Yes! One of those gallon-sized ones.

  • Melene February 12, 2019 at 11:43 am

    Do you make these without milk when you beat the eggs?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 12, 2019 at 1:49 pm

      I do!

  • Lindsey February 12, 2019 at 12:05 pm

    Basil is the ticket in these… just a little amount of fresh basil and they’re divine.

  • Jaime February 13, 2019 at 11:25 am

    Do you think you could make these in mini muffin tins?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 13, 2019 at 12:07 pm

      Yes, they would be tiny little bites!

  • Laura at Cheered on Mom February 15, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    I can’t wait to make these and have them on hand. Thank you, Shay!
