We’re all so busy nowadays and most of us have this monotonous routine every day where we don’t always have a chance to think about what we’re feeding our body. If you’ve fallen into that trap and eaten poorly, you probably regret it immediately. Instead, use your time to prep and have a wonderfully healthy meal.
Please let me introduce you to egg cups!
These are a simple and easy to make breakfast that you can make ahead of time for grab and go. These let you be super creative with your recipe and they’re fun to make! When you do make these, you have no excuse not to eat in the morning!
I have two recipes for you. These have less than 5 ingredients and take less than an hour to make.
Bell Pepper & Goat Cheese
1 half of a green bell pepper
1 half of a red bell pepper
Six (6) eggs
First, preheat the oven to 350*. Then chop up your peppers. You can chop them as thinly as you want, but I recommend dicing them in order to give a crunch to your egg cups.
Next, prepare your muffin pan. This can prevent sticking once all ingredients are in the cups. I used a coconut oil spray, but you can use olive oil or butter. Once you have the cups in the muffin pan ready, set this aside.
In a medium bowl, crack six (6) eggs and whisk them. Add your diced peppers, and the goat cheese to your liking. Once all ingredients are in the bowl, stir gently.
Now, add then mixture to your muffin pan. Approximately one (1) egg will go in each cup. Once filled, they’re ready to go in the oven for 25 minutes.
Bacon & Monterey Jack Cheese
six (6) strips of cooked bacon
six (6) eggs
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
First, you’ll need to cook the bacon. We typically cook it in the oven, but follow the directions on the package and cook until it gets to the desired crispiness. Just like in the first recipe, you’ll prepare the muffin pan and set it aside. Get your bowl and follow the process with the eggs. Then, add in the bacon and the Monterey Jack cheese and stir. Add the mixture to the muffin pan and cook for 25 minutes.
Here’s the finished product.

Right: Bell Pepper & Goat Cheese
These recipes are super easy and can be edited based on the ingredients of your choice. This week, we’re going to try spinach, tomato and of course, cheese. Keep it fresh and change it based on your taste buds. Most of all, have fun with it.
