Since the kids are back in school, I am always looking for easy and healthy breakfast options that aren't full of sugar and will give them the energy they need to start their day. Another requirement was that they were grab and go. These delicious, but simple Egg Muffin Cups are simple to make and can be heated in a few minutes for a quick weekday breakfast on the go. The fillings are just a start to what you can add - mushrooms, shredded kale, green peppers, tomatoes or spinach make for some variety!
Here are the variations at our house as everyone wants different fillings!
And the filled eggs cups (about 3/4 full)!
Here's the recipe:
