Spintastic Breakfast Cups!

Pin It

Even though I do not have to leave my house in a rush every morning and go to work, I STILL don’t have time to eat breakfast. Are you kidding me?  How does this happen?  The busyness of attending to my children is what life is all about now and I love it! However, I do miss my first 20 minutes of work, sitting down at the computer, checking email and enjoying a little breakfast (and a little me time after the hustle and bustle of the morning).  It was usually a cup of coffee or carton of milk and a protein bar, ahhh!


Even though I love my Easy Eggcellent Breakfast Wrap from a few posts ago, I still don’t always have time to do something so simple in the morning.  A couple of weekends ago we had my family over and I made some breakfast egg cups in a muffin tin.  I ended up with some leftovers and found these to be perfect solution – HAVING SOMETHING READY!  I just grab a couple out of the frig and I was good to go for the morning!  Again, a little time to plan, makes a world of difference!

I love the saying:


So true!

So here we go, I had a few minutes after dinner the other night and made my Spintastic Breakfast Cups.  Spintastic, because I used an entire package of spinach, it may be a little scary for you but no harm, a great way to get in veggies for the morning!  Woohoo!

Start with six egg.


Use my little chopper! Onions and a few sprigs of oregano!  Oregano really lasts for quite awhile, yay! I still have a bunch leftover from my Stuffed Cheesy Peppers (those are great as leftovers, too!)!

Please don’t be scared of all the green, once you add the onion, oregano and cheese – it tastes great! Again, what a GREAT way to get in some veggies for the morning!

I am going to come up with a Mexican version of this soon (so you can decide)! Smile These little cups are a great way to get in some filling protein for the morning!  I pop a couple in the microwave or just eat them cold AND I’m full!
