egg cups

baked egg cups : )
last night i made a super easy (and yummy) dinner for craig and me.  these delicious little egg cups are perfect for breakfast or dinner and are so simple to prepare.

what you'll need...

1 muffin tin
6 eggs
6 slices of cold cuts (turkey or ham)
1/2 small onion
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 slice sharp provolone
cooking spray or olive oil mister
salt & pepper

assembling the cups
1. preheat oven to 375
2. chop onion and saute in olive oil.  add garlic.  season with salt & pepper.
3. spray 6 muffin cups with oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking (fill unused cups 1/3 of way with water).
4. line sprayed cups with slices of cold cuts and crack 1 large egg into each lined cup.
5. season with salt & pepper and then top each cup with spoonful with onion/garlic mixture.
6. divide butter and provolone evenly and top each cup.
7. bake for approximately 15 minutes until tops are lightly browned, but yolks are still a little runny.
8. enjoy!!!  ( may need to loosen edges with a knife for easy removal from muffin tin.)
butter & provolone
serving size suggestions:  1 cup makes for a terrific breakfast with a slice of toast or bagel.  if you're making them for dinner serve with roasted veggies, baked rice or salad - i would eat 2, craig would eat 3 to give you an idea : )

top with butter & cheese
(and for you health nuts out there, they're only 125-150 calories per cup.)


  1. Yum! This looks like a delicious recipe- thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow, this looks delicious! I love eggs for every meal - this sounds easy and fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. Have a great weekend!

  3. This does look terrific! I hope you'll join us at Eat, Write, Retreat - I'd love to meet you.

    Thanks for stopping by Flamingo Musings!

  4. Fantastic idea. I'm going to try them this weekend. Perfect protein meal after a gym workout. Thanks

  5. These look so good! I've been trying to think of new breakfast foods so I will definitely have to try these!

  6. What a great idea. I'm now considering making an egg, cheese, and veggie sausage casserole. Yum!

  7. I just ate one of these. I made it as soon as I came home from the gym. Fantastic. I added a little oregano. I guess it is my "Philly" roots, but combining provolone with ham reminds me of a hoagie and you can't have a hoagie without oregano.
    Cailen, I agree with RJ Flamingo, you should go to Eat/Write/Retreat. I'm signed up and can't wait.

  8. These look really good. I see the calorie count for one but can you really eat just one?
