How to Make Breakfast Egg Cups

Making breakfast egg cups is super simple. First and foremost, you’re going to need a super non-stick muffin tin for all 4 of these recipes. We say super nonstick because we’ve all been there. When you can’t get your egg cups out of the tin. Here’s the one we use!

Second, while we’re sharing 4 different healthy egg cup recipes in this post, making your own variation at home is super simple. Here’s the basis of what you need.

Breakfast Egg Cups Ingredients

  • large eggs: we prefer large eggs, but any size will work!
  • veggies: any kind of veggies will work! Some of my personal favs include spinach, peppers, onions, and mushrooms.
  • protein: think breakfast sausage, bacon, ground turkey, etc.
  • cheese: the more cheese the merrier! Shredded cheese works great with egg cups.
  • spices: you can’t go wrong with salt and pepper, but feel free to spice things up with any spices your heart desires!
  • milk: a splash of milk in your egg cups goes a long way. We love using almond milk for this, but any kind of mill will do the trick.

Breakfast Egg Cups Tips

How do you make your egg cups not stick to the pan? Make sure you are using a high-quality nonstick pan just like this one. We also suggest using coconut oil cooking spray on the pan before adding your ingredients to the muffin tin.

How long do cooked eggs last? Cooked eggs should last you anywhere from 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

How many eggs is a cup? Around 4 large eggs equals one cup. So, if you’re looking for how many cups 1 egg equals, it’s about 1/4 cup per large egg!

Is it okay to reheat eggs? Yes, you can reheat eggs. We suggest reheating your breakfast egg cups in the microwave on high for around 30-60 seconds.

How should I store my breakfast egg cups? We recommend storing your egg cups in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last you up to 5 days.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.

  3. Transfer browned meat into muffin cups. Then prep vegetables by finely dicing green pepper, red pepper, and onion. Evenly spread out among muffin cups.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.

Bacon Wrapped Eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF and spray a 12-cup, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Next, use one piece of bacon per muffin to create a basket of sorts for the egg. Place the bacon on the inside of each muffin so that it covers the sides completely. Then, use a pair scissors to cut the remaining bacon. Use this excess piece of bacon for the bottom of your basket. Repeat with all pieces of bacon.
  3. Place bacon in the oven at 400ºF for around 7 minutes. Remove before they start to get crispy.
  4. Crack 1 egg inside of each bacon basket. Make sure that you use large eggs as anything bigger will be too much egg to hold in the muffins.
  5. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you like your eggs.
  6. Finally, season with pepper and enjoy!
