This recipe makes the most of the eggs we always have on hand and the vegetables that we love. It's a great way to get in some extra greens on weekends. It's all a balance, we serve this with croissants and bacon, so don't think it's all healthy.

Easy Breakfast Recipe Scrambled Egg Cups Ingredients

  • 8 eggs (we love Nellie's free range)
  • 1/2 cup 2% or whole milk
  • Sale & Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (we used Cabot cheddar seriously sharp)
  • Fresh herbs (I used tarragon, but chives are also great)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup spinach cut into ribbons

Feel free to customize the ingredients to suit your family. Keep the egg/milk ratio the same and just add in what you like. Some alternative ideas include: cooked bacon or ham, scallions, broccoli, and peppers.

Since we ran out of shredded cheddar, we cubed up some from our big block of Cabot cheddar.
