Easy Peasy Fancy Egg Cups

Easy Peasy Fancy Egg Cups

These egg cups are simple to prepare and are a great grab-and-go breakfast. Extra egg cups can be stored in the fridge (or freezer) and reheated in the microwave. And you can get creative with toppings for something a little “fancy” … like I show you with Step 2.

I hope you enjoy them! Please come back to this post and comment below how they turned out … and would love to see any photos of your creations!

Ingredients:
6 large eggs
6 egg whites
2 small yellow squash, chopped
1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup arugula
1 crispy bacon strip
1-2 tsp fresh feta, crumbled
Himalayan salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste; optional
Nonstick cooking spray

Preparation:

Step 1:
1. Heat oven to 350° F.
2. Beat eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Add squash, pepper, and onions to egg mixture; mix well.
3. Lightly coat a twelve cup muffin tin with spray.
4. Evenly pour egg mixture into muffin cups.
5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of cups comes out clean.
6. Serve warm or store in fridge or freezer for later

*If you have a convection oven, you may want to cook at 325° F.

Step 2:
This is the “fancy” part! 😉
1. Heat up 2 already prepared egg cups
2. Cook one bacon strip – I use a microwave bacon grill similar to this one. (I don’t think the one I have is available anymore.)
3. Plate the egg cups and top with arugula, your preferred amount of crumbled feta, and about 1/4 of the bacon strip. (of course eat the rest while you’re plating the food – haha!)

FYI – My favorite mainstream brand outside of official Greek markets is Vigo. It’s the most authentic because it’s made of sheep’s milk and is a full block of cheese sitting in water – just like it’s supposed to be. I’m Greek, I kinda know my feta cheese. 😉

Tired of feeling sluggish, uncomfortable in your own skin, confused about nutrition, and just too busy to spend hours at the gym? (or not getting the results you want.)

I know you have questions. And I have answers. Because I was there…
