Cheese & Sausage Egg Cups

We have a house full this holiday season and in order to serve some good healthy breakfast options that everyone will enjoy, we pulled together a few recipes from years past and just made some simple variations to the recipes so we had some that were kid friendly. These egg cups turned out really well, and are simple to assemble, especially if you do some prep ahead of time. The eggs are cooked in muffin tins that are lined with wonton wrappers which crisp up nicely as the eggs bake. For the kids we kept it simple and used chicken sausage flavored with apples, and some shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese. For the adults, we used sauteed spinach and mushrooms, chopped green onions, and some shredded light gouda cheese.

 

 
Why Healthy

  • Using an egg substitute and reduced fat cheese eliminates some of the fat from the egg cups.
  • Chicken sausage is a much lighter alternative than the usual pork based breakfast sausage.
  • Adding spinach and mushrooms boost the nutritional value.
