Don’t Ruin Your Egg Cups
First things, first! When you are making any egg cup recipe, it is CRUCIAL that you do something to help prevent your egg cups from sticking to the pan. There are a couple of ways that you can do this.
- Use a non-stick pan!
- Spray your muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray!
- Use muffin wrappers!
We recommend spraying your muffin tin AND spraying your muffin wrappers no matter what route you decide to use. If you don’t do anything to prevent sticking, you will have yourself a mini disaster. I warned yah.
What to Eat with Egg Cups
If you are making egg cups as your main breakfast for the week, we usually eat 2-3 egg cups for a serving. It all depends on what you are used to eating in the morning or if you are going to have a super active day.
If you are looking for something to serve with your egg cups, here are some of our favorite things to eat with egg cups!
- Serve egg cups on toast!
- Egg cups are delicious on a bed of massaged kale!
- We love serving egg cups with fresh fruit! A little sweet and a little savory!
Egg Cups 101
Can I use raw asparagus in this recipe?
Yes, you can use raw asparagus in this recipe! We like to sauté our asparagus first to both soften the asparagus and to add a little extra flavor to the egg cups!
