These flavorful and filling tortilla egg cups can help you stay energized longer thanks to the protein combined with fiber, which slows down digestion. Plus, the veggies are rich in a variety of nutrients including vitamin C, A, and E, which are immune-boosting and supportive of brain health. Make it your own by adding favorites like spinach and tomatoes, opt for dairy-free milk and cheese, or use gluten-free tortillas.
Bonus: These can be cooked in advanced, stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to seven days, and then reheated in the microwave for 20-30 seconds for grab-and-go breakfasts.
- 6 eggs
- ⅓ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ⅓ cup chopped bell peppers
- ⅓ cup chopped onions
- ⅓ cup diced potatoes, cooked
- 6 large whole wheat tortillas
- ½ cup shredded cheese
- Ketchup or salsa, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add bell peppers, onions and potatoes, and stir to combine.
- Using a large round cookie cutter, cut out 12 x 3-inch tortilla rounds. Place each round in each cavity of muffin tin and press down to form a cup. If you do not have a cookie cutter, use a large cup and trace around the edges with a knife.
- Add the egg and vegetable mixture into each muffin cavity and fill to 90% full.
- Add shredded cheese on top of the cups and bake for 16-18 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and allow the egg cups to cool for 5 minutes.
- Serve with ketchup or salsa, if desired.
Note: Tortilla scraps will be left over from the cutouts, and there are several ways to use them. Cut into pieces and air fry or bake into tortilla chips; make not-so-perfectly shaped mini tortilla roll-ups with cheese or hummus; air fry or bake until crispy then crush and sprinkle over salads for a crunchy topping; cut into strips and make chicken tortilla soup; or eat the leftover tortillas as is!
