Turkey And Egg Cups Recipe

This Turkey And Egg Cups recipe is a really good meal prep breakfast idea. You can make a dozen on Sunday, then eat them during the week.

I’m always looking for make ahead breakfast ideas. I don’t mind spending time on a Sunday afternoon making breakfast for the week if that means our Monday (and all the other weekdays) go a little smoother.

This Turkey And Egg Cups recipe is perfect for that.

It is time consuming and the cups take a while to make (well, the way I make them), but it’s worth it. Once they’re done, you can put them in the fridge for the week. Each weekday morning, take one out, microwave it, and start your day.

And you’re starting it with a lot of protein, which is a great way to start off your morning.

How To Make Turkey And Egg Cups:

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Generously spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Turkey slices in the 12 cavities of a muffin pan.

Fill each cavity with a slice of turkey.

Chop the spinach.

Egg, spinach, and feta cheese in a bowl.

In a bowl, add an egg, some feta, some of the spinach, plus seasoning.

Egg, spinach, and feta cheese mixed together n a bowl.

Use a whisk to combine the ingredients. Don’t over-whisk them or the egg cups will come out spongy due to the excess air.

Turkey And Egg Cups Variations

These Turkey and egg cups, with spinach and feta, make them a twist on a Greek omelet. But, you can change up the fillings and make different varieties of these.

Cheese Lovers Egg Cups

Skip the spinach and go with more cheese to make Cheese Lovers Egg Cups. Use chunks of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, plus the feta if you want, to make a cheese fans dream.

Denver Egg Cups

For a twist on a Denver omelet, use ham cold cuts as the outside instead of turkey. Then, beat the eggs with onions, peppers, and cheese.

Turkey Bacon Egg Cups

Instead of using turkey cold cuts to make the outer layer, use turkey bacon wrapped around the bottom and sides of each muffin cavity. Then, fill them with beaten eggs and cheese.

Turkey And Egg Cups: Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use seasoned turkey slices?

You sure can. We use mesquite turkey slices in ours, but that’s more for aesthetics than actual taste.

Do you have to make these one at a time?

When I make these, I beat each egg mixture individually, then pour it into the turkey.

Is that the fastest way? No. Is that the best way to guarantee that the ingredients are equally distributed? Yes.

If you wanted to speed up the process, you could put all the eggs, spinach, feta, and seasoning into the bowl at once, then split the mixture between the 12 cavities of the muffin pan. When doing that, though, you risk the first few getting egg only and the last few getting all the spinach and feta.

I know takes more time to do them each individually, but it makes them taste better.

Can you use a silicone muffin pan to make these?

If you have a silicone muffin pan, you can definitely go ahead and use that instead of a metal muffin pan. If you use one, that means you won’t have to wait for the egg cups to cool before taking them out of the pan. They should immediately pop right out.

Just be careful if you’re using a silicone muffin pan because they’re really flexible. And that can lead to the egg cups spilling when you’re trying to get them in the oven.

So, what I would suggest is that you put the silicone muffin pan on a cookie sheet or in a baking pan (depending on the size) first. Then, make the egg cups as written in the recipe. It’ll be so much easier to pick up the cookie sheet or baking pan and put that directly into the oven rather than trying to put the silicone muffin pan in the oven.

How can you store leftover Turkey And Egg Cups?

Let any leftover Turkey And Egg Cups cool completely. Then, store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They should be eaten within four days.

If you’re not going to eat these right away, you can freeze them in a freezer-safe container. You can store them for up to three months that way.

How do you reheat Egg Cups?

Heat refrigerated egg cups in the microwave for about 30 seconds on high. Be sure to check your microwave, though, as times and temperatures can vary and you don’t want to burn your mouth on these.

You can heat frozen egg cups in the same manner, but you’ll want to double the amount of time in the microwave.

Are Turkey And Egg Cups keto friendly?

If you’re following keto, these turkey and egg cups can be considered keto friendly.

There’s very little carbs in the feta and spinach, and you’re distributing them over 12 egg cups, so there’s not that much in each. The turkey doesn’t have carbs and eggs have very little carbs. So you can definitely consider these keto friendly.

Are Turkey And Egg Cups a Weight Watchers breakfast?

If you’re following Weight Watchers, and you’re on the Freestyle plan (which has a lot of Zero Point Foods), this is a great recipe.

The eggs, spinach, and turkey are all Zero Point Foods. The cheese is not, but 1 tablespoon is 1 point, and you’re not using that much in each cup, so I personally would count it as zero points (which I know isn’t exactly the proper way to count points, but I count with a bit of grace.

What can you do with the leftover turkey slices?

You can go to the deli counter and get exactly enough slices of turkey for this recipe. But, chances are you’ll go to the lunchmeat section of the grocery store and buy packaged turkey slices (that’s what I do).

This recipe won’t use the entire package, so you will have some leftover.

You can use it to make the following recipes:
