Cheese and Veggie Baked Egg Cups

Eggs are my go-to breakfast of choice almost every morning. Usually, it’s a quick fried egg or two while I’m getting my boys out the door to school but I get the chance, I love to prep a big batch of baked egg cups on Sunday to reheat all week long.

The method is simple and can be swapped out with any veggies, meats or cheeses you have on hand. Most recently I created a vegetarian egg, cheese and veggie version of the baked egg cups but in the past I’ve used hamsausage and even black beans.

Of course, you can’t have egg bakes without a little cheese. For these, I used shredded Colby jack but feel free to use any shredded cheese you have on hand or even feta cheese.

You can enjoy them warm out of the oven if you’re feeding a crowd or serving brunch. Alternatively, they reheat great all week long. Simply keep them stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
