Cooking Tips:Grease the muffin cups: Seriously, oil the cups. Or you’ll resent yourself. You can technically bake these in nonstick silicone liners, but I really don’t want to bake in silicone because I’m special like that. Chop well: Chopping everything evenly and small enough does three things:
- it helps distribute all the mix-ins evenly
- it makes the egg cups easier to eat if everything is bite-sized
- everything cooks evenly
WHAT TO HAVE WITH BAKED EGG CUPS FOR BREAKFAST:
These are really versatile! You can make a fully balanced meal, or go low carb/keto with your sides (why though, sadness).
Here are some of our favorite sides:
- some fruit and toast/bread/bagel
- a breakfast salad! no really, a chopped salad of cucumber/tomatoes/peppers is so delicious, but I have this more during the summer
- nuts and cheese, if you need some no-reheat ideas for a to-go breakfast
- avocado is one of my favorite sides with all things eggs – which is also why I put them together in my Avocado Egg Salad
