Breakfast doesn’t get much quicker to prepare than these easy egg cups which are ready in eight minutes. The egg mixture is whipped up in a single-serving portion and spooned into a custard cup or ramekin, microwaved until done, and then topped with crumbled feta cheese and fresh chives for a final punch of flavor. It’s quick, easy, and flavorful. Amp up the flavor of the eggs by sprinkling in some garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or a little crushed red pepper. Pair the egg cups with toast and fresh fruit for the ultimate quick morning meal to start your day.
