Breakfast can be such a pain point in our house! There is so much going on—especially on weekdays—that I really like having prepped breakfasts waiting the fridge for me to grab-and-go with ease. A big favorite in our house are these Herbed Goat Cheese and Turkey Egg Cups! They come together in about 15 minutes are are great heated up or cold straight from the fridge!
One of the things I personally love about these egg cups for breakfast is that they’re a great source of healthy fats and protein. I think getting protein is pretty easy for people at lunch and dinner. That’s when big juicy cuts of meat and bean-filled dishes reign supreme, but breakfast can be a little iffy.
A lot of times, breakfast can be all about the carbs and sugar—which is cool, I mean, I love pastries as much as the next gal, but I know for my body, I need to add some protein and fat to make me feel happy and full through the morning. A slice of toast alone has me headed back to the kitchen looking for more food an hour later, but a slice of toast with some egg cups? I’m ready to take on the day!
I love that these egg cups are versatile. For a fancy Sunday breakfast, I’ll cook them until the yolk is runny and serve them over whole grain toast or a perfectly toasted and buttered English muffin. For a grab-and-go breakfast, bake up a few of them to the hard stage, stash them in the fridge and then just nuke them for a few seconds to take the chill off in the morning. Yum!
Of course, you can pretty much take this concept and do whatever makes your heart happy. We’ve actually expanded our egg cup recipe collection to include four more fun combos—make sure to check those out as well. And enjoy this OG egg cup recipe!
