Breakfast Cups 3 Ways

Breakfast Cups 3 Ways | BodyRebooted.com

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!

Weekends are my favorite time for breakfast since I can take my time, but weekdays are a totally different story. There’s never enough time, no matter how early I get up, to make a really great breakfast…until now!

If you are short on time in the morning, these breakfast cups are going to become your best friend. ❤ They’re easy to make, reheat and enjoy and they taste delicious! The best part? You can mix and match to get the flavors and ingredients you love. #TimesaverTip:  Make these on Sunday so you have breakfast for the entire week!

I wanted to show you a few different variations so I made 3 different cups today: MeatLovers, Veggie, and Broccoli Cheese.

To start preheat oven to 400° and spray a 12-cup muffin pan generously with non-stick cooking spray. If you think you have enough, spray some more, it’s that important. Take your cooked and shredded potato (or your packaged hash browns) and place on a paper towel. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can and then place into a large bowl. Pour olive oil on top of the hash browns and add in salt and pepper to taste.

Mix together with hands and place an equal amount into each of the 12 cups. Using your fingers, press the potatoes around the edges of each cup and along the bottom, making sure to leave room for the filling. Spray each cup with cooking spray again and bake for 15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool.

While the potatoes are cooking and cooling, cook sausage and bacon then crumble and set aside. Chop all veggies. Saute red onion in oil for 5 minutes then add broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes and set aside. Shred manchego cheese.

For MeatLovers cups: place equal amount of sausage and bacon in 4 cups and top with shredded cheese. For Veggie cups: place equal amounts of yellow onion, tomato, and bell pepper into 4 cups and add in some diced jalapeno for a little heat (optional). For Broccoli Cheese cups: place equal amounts of broccoli and red onion in 4 cups and top with shredded cheese.

Now comes the fun part! In a small bowl, whisk together 5 eggs and pour over MeatLovers and Broccoli Cheese cups. For Veggie cups – break 1 egg over each of the 4 cups. I don’t have the best luck with breaking eggs so I broke each one separately in a measuring cup and then poured it on top. You never know when those yolks are going to cooperate!

Carefully, place muffin pan back in oven and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Let cool and run knife around outside of each cup to loosen and remove. (This is when the generous amount of cooking spray comes in super handy)! Cups can be eaten right away or stored in the refrigerator. Just heat for 60 seconds in microwave and you’ll have yourself a healthy, quick and easy breakfast any day of the week! Jazz up your breakfast cups with fresh sliced avocado, homemade salsa or green onions!

  3. This sounds really good.

    Is this ok for DDP Yoga?

    My husband and I just started and are on a modified Phase 1 (with a little of Phase 3 in the mix).

    Before making it though wanted to see if it would work or if we should wait until we’re closer to (or at) our goal weight.

  4. Absolutely Lydia! You can mix it up and use the veggies you like – it’s great for Phase 1 and 2. For Phase 3 you’d have to just eat the protein and healthy fat together (so eggs + avocado and maybe some Canadian bacon).
