Time to Assemble The Egg Cups!
- This recipe makes 6 Egg Cups. In each of the empty spots on your muffin tin, assemble the following ingredients. Adding just a little bit of each ingredient: hashbrowns, veggies, deli meat, cheese.
- Next, pour your milk into your egg mixture, and beat the eggs with a fork until well combined. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the other ingredients, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Wash your hands.
- Carefully place them in the oven and set a timer for 18-25 minutes. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and the eggs are set. Carefully remove from the oven, and use a fork to lift them out of the muffin tin. Be sure to turn off the oven and wash your hands. Enjoy!!
- Don't have hash browns? Sub in a few pieces of cut whole grain bread. About 2-3 small pieces per egg cup.
- Add in fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables. If frozen, thaw in the microwave for about 30-60 seconds. This will make it easier to cut into smaller pieces.
