Healthy Breakfast for Busy Work Days

These egg cups make for a delicious and nutritious breakfast on busy mornings. It feels like an omelet but with less work and less mess. The muffin tin makes convenient egg cups that you can put on an English muffin for a breakfast sandwich or enjoy all on its own.

The recipe is very flexible, and it's so easy to throw together before a busy work week. You can customize these egg cups by switching up the veggies or omitting them altogether, adding chopped ham or bacon to make them more savory, or adding your choice of toppings.
