Back-to-school has me totally exhausted. During summer break, I would sleep in till at least 7 or 8 am. Now it’s up at 6:15 and the kids are out the door by 7. And I’m NOT a morning person. The kids however, ARE morning people and love a breakfast that needs to be cooked. I hear ya kids, I love a good warm omelet and some french toast too but on school days, that is just not happening. What we need are quick meals and that’s why I love making egg cups.
Egg cups are the perfect size for breakfast AND they are grab n’ go. The best part is that you can make a couple of batches of these ahead of time, place them in your fridge and you have breakfast covered for the entire week. An entire week of breakfasts made in only 30 minutes! It makes mornings run so much smoother.
I’m a big fan of anything that can be made in muffin tins. It really is the perfect portion size for kids. When making my last batch of eggs cups, I decided to add a bit more to them instead of just eggs in order to make them more like an omelet. I picked up some Butterball® Ground Turkey at Walmart and also got a green pepper and some cheese.
I use ground turkey in place of beef in a lot of recipes as a better alternative than beef. Ground turkey is so versatile and can be used in so many recipes. Butterball ground turkey is all natural with no artificial ingredients.
The recipe for these egg cups is so easy. And what I love about them is that you can add whatever ingredients you have on hand. It’s a great way to use up extra veggies that are lurking in your fridge.
Breakfast Egg Cups
- 12 eggs
- 1/2 lb Butterball Fresh Ground Turkey
- green pepper
- shredded cheese any variety
- salt and pepper to taste
Brown and drain the ground turkey
Dice the green pepper into small pieces
Crack one egg into each muffin tin and scramble
Add ground turkey and peppers to each tin
Top with shredded cheese
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes
Salt and pepper to taste when done baking
I used green bell pepper and shredded cheddar cheese but again, you can use whatever you have on hand. Red bell pepper, onions, tomato pepper jack, colby cheese. All of those ingredients would work and taste amazing.
These egg cups are delicious and the kids are able to grab them out of the fridge and pop them in the microwave on their own. It’s one less task that I have to do in the morning which is always a good thing.
Here are the egg cups before the cheese. One egg is perfect for each opening of the muffin tin. Then just add ground turkey and your choice of veggies.
And top with cheese!

I made something similar just a few weeks ago. They are easy to make and I like that they are not flour based! #client

These look SO good! Eggs are such a great way to start the day with energy!
These look awesome. I need to try them. My middle child LOVES omelets, but they can time consuming on school mornings. These look great!
No need to grease the tins?
They look quite tasty!
Hi Sam! Sorry I left that out. Yes, grease the muffin tins with nonstick spray.
Do you use cupcake liners or just nonstick spray?
Hi Nelle! Sorry I didn’t address that. I use nonstick spray.
Can you substitute sausage for the turkey?
Yes, you can.
How do you store these in the refrigerator? In plastic wrap? Or a plastic bin? I made these and they’re very good.
You can store them either way. Just make sure they are covered.
How long in the microwave?
15 seconds or so or until warm.
