Little cups of heaven

These egg cups are perfect for Breakfast, Brunch or Lunch, whichever you prefer. They are so quick to make and eat. Which is why these are one of the regulars on our weekly meal plans.

Pre heat the oven to 180 fan or gas mark 4

Makes 12 Egg Cups

9 Eggs

Handful of rough chopped Spinach

Handful of chopped Ham

Handful of grated Cheese

Mix up the eggs in a measuring pouring jug and then place a small amount in each muffin case. Add in your ingredients excluding the cheese.

Then top up with the remaining egg.

Add the grated cheese and place in the oven.

Cook for 20 minutes.


The Verdict

So easy to make that a child could do this, they are great for changing the ingredients and also to eat on the go. Only problem is they go too quickly!

The Nerdy Bit

Eggs are great for so many reasons, they give us a source of protein, iodine and essential vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin D, B6, Zinc, Copper and Iron.

Ham is also up there with the protein, along with added Iron. It is also low in fat.

Spinach, well where do you start, it is low in fat and can even lower cholesterol, it is also high in zinc as well as protein, fibre vitamins, calcium, iron the list just goes on.

Cheese, even though it is high in fats, they are good fats and therefor eaten in controlled amounts can help you stay fuller for longer and help you not to snack. It is also packed with protein and calcium. A winner all round in our house.
