Quick and Easy Low Carb Egg Cups Recipe

Quick and Easy Low Carb Egg Cups Recipe

Want a quick and easy breakfast or a healthy snack that you can prepare ahead of time? This is a go-to!

I call these egg cups because I don’t like to think of my eggs in the form of a muffin, but you will use a muffin tin to bake these.

They are…super easy, super flexible and super tasty. Why wouldn’t you try them? They are great for a quick, healthy breakfast or lunch option. I have added these as a brunch go-to item, as well, when we have brunch get togethers. They are so easy and you can make a few different kinds to choose from.

Also, I could use this disclaimer on many of my recipes, but I don’t always measure my ingredients. Most times, I just wing it and see how it turns out. Experience makes a great teacher 😉

Ingredients:

  • 5 Eggs
  • Dab of milk (I used almond)

*Notes

Get creative with these! You could add a variety of difference spices or ingredients to fit your preferences. My meat-loving husband suggested I add cooked sausage to the next batch so I will try that variation.
