We love egg cups here at Fit Foodie Finds and often make a double batch for breakfast and/or snacks. We’ve got 3 of us to feed + Mark, so we go through a lot of eggs!

Can you freeze these and for how long?
Made these with some manager special ground turkey I smagged at the store and they are DELISH! Fantastic for meal prep and we’ll see how well they hold up in the freezer!
Heck YES! I love a good deal! Let us know how freezing them goes!
How did the freezing go?
I loved this recipe! I definitely changed it up a bit – I sautéed onions and then added ground breakfast sausage. I added it to the egg cup and topped with egg and cheese! They turned out perfect! I recommend cooking it for the lower recommended time.
They certainly take longer than 10 mins to prepare but they are so worth it. Absolutely delicious and really filling
