A Family Can Gather For Breakfast | Egg Cups

Our data manager, Kathleen, has been on a breakfast tear these days.  Her husband Kevin is currently deployed.  Kathleen knows that sitting down as a family to eat a meal is the easiest way to keep her family feeling connected, cared for, and "normal" during their father's absence.  She also fiercely believes a healthy breakfast is the best start to the day.  Sometimes, her busy schedule as a "single Mom" makes sitting down for dinner impossible so she makes sure her family eats breakfast together everyday.  Here's a taste of what Kathleen is putting on her table for breakfast.  I'll keep you posted when she shares more of her creations.

Egg Cups

So easy!  I have them every morning for breakfast, sometimes with fruit, sometimes with breakfast cookies, sometimes solo.

Cheddar Spinach

2 cups frozen spinach thawed

1 C shredded cheddar, or cheese of choice.  I shred my own to avoid the cellulose

Liquid egg whites (can use whole eggs as well).

That’s it! For this version at least.

I thaw the spinach and shred the cheese. Mix them together.  I also add ¼ C nutritional yeast.  Spoon the mixture into silicone muffin cups, and top with egg whites.  Couldn’t be any easier.

Bake is 350 oven for 30ish mins until the egg sets.

I keep mine in a Tupperware in the fridge, and heat 2 in the microwave for 45 seconds in the morning.

Other additions I’ve tried – avocado (YUM!), tomatoes, turkey bacon (another YUM!).  It all depends on what you prefer in your eggs
