Pepper and Egg Cups for Breakfast

Breakfast time! Come and get it! Though I rarely actually have to call anyone to the table to eat. These pepper and egg cups are delicious and filling. While my kids don’t care for these, they are against egg, but Hubby and I enjoy having them ready to heat up each morning. Hubby can grab them on the way out the door on his way to work.

These are easy to make, healthy, and they are extremely filling. They taste great as is, along with other breakfast foods, and they are amazing in an English muffin, making your own version of an Egg McMuffin.

What you need:

  • 1 ⁄2 cup Hormel Bacon bits
  • 1 ⁄2 cup uncooked bell peppers
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 ⁄4 cup plain unsweetened almond milk – or your choice of milk
  • 4 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp basil

How to make breakfast egg cups:

  1. Grab a large bowl, crack 10 eggs into it.
  2. Add in your milk, 3/4 of the shredded cheese, diced peppers,  basil, and bacon bits into the bowl too.
  3. Mix everything together really well.
  4. This part is important: spray your muffin tin really, really well with non-stick spray. These will stick. They’ll stick slightly even with spraying well. I get between 10-12 cups, depending on whether I go overboard with peppers.
  5. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  6. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

These pepper and egg cups are perfect for making up ahead of time. Either throw a couple into the microwave or oven to reheat for breakfast on the go. These are the perfect make ahead breakfast for Christmas morning.

I bought silicone muffin liners to see if there was a difference in ease of getting the breakfast egg cups out, and the answer is: yes. And no.

The trick to getting them out without breaking them up is this: let them cool completely. When they are still hot they fall apart. I know how hard it is to just leave them be because they smell so good.
