Easy Breakfast Egg Cups Made at Home!

Breakfast Egg Cups baked and enjoyed first thing in the morning at home! Made with delicious Italian flavours, crisp prosciutto, provolone, creamy ricotta mixed with marinara, fluffy eggs and fresh basil. A breakfast dish the whole family will be happy to wake up to!

There’s just something about crispy prosciutto isn’t there? It’s like inviting you in to break a little off and nibble (not that I know from personal experience or anything). Paired with the melty provolone cheese and creamy ricotta with the flavour and spices of marina and some fluffy but a touch crisp on top eggs and it’s legit amore! (love in Italian…yes that cheesiness just happened!)

I know this time of year, when it starts to get colder and darker my body seems to crave more sleep and it’s sometimes hard to get started in the morning. Sleep ins happen, late starts, less than ideal breakfast choices on the fly.

I know grab and go breakfast is a great option but to me, I actually enjoy eating breakfast at home, where it’s warm and fresh and so I thought I’d give these breakfast egg cups a try and boy are they good! And an even better example that even though you may be short on time, you can still enjoy a delicious warm breakfast at home. Even quicker if you read on to my tip for this recipe!

Low Carb or Not!

I no longer label my recipes by diet but I will mention that these breakfast egg cups are low carb friendly! Add some side avocado and up those healthy fats! Looking for more low carb breakfast options? Try these Instant Pot Bacon Gruyere Egg Bites

Not worried about it being low carb? I find these cups to be very filling with two eggs per cup plus the prosciutto and cheese but if this isn’t going to cut it, go ahead and add some side toast, or maybe a little side salad or some fruit!

Make These Breakfast Egg Cups Quicker!

Shave off some time from this recipe by prepping these egg cups before you go to bed to enjoy the next morning! It only takes a few minutes and the ramekins fit great in the fridge with some wrap over top and just preheat your oven and pop them in while you work on getting ready in the morning.

A small amount of effort for a filly breakfast that actually tastes good and your whole family will enjoy!
