Wanna know my little secret to a quick high protein breakfast?? Ham Spinach Egg Cups.

You guys, you should know that egg muffin quiche recipes are my nemesis. BECAUSE
Why do the eggs stick to the tin and not come off?? Ugh.
BUT line the muffin pan with ham, and problems are solved.
Meal prep fan?? I love how easy these guys are to prep. You can see here… line a muffin cup with deli ham or turkey (you want to make sure that it’s thick deli meat– thanks for that suggestion Meaghan!!)… then pop in all your favorites… I chose chopped spinach and cheddar for this recipe and top with an egg!
Oh and this recipe is only made with 4 ingredients!!!
These Ham Spinach Egg Cups take about 20-25 minutes to cook, depending on if you want the egg to be soft baked or more firm like I did in this recipe. Although I do love a good soft baked egg… over a thick and grainy slice of buttered toast, oh YES!
