Baked Egg Cups & Saucy Mama Giveaway

baked egg cupI like a good cooking challenge. When I heard about Saucy Mama's Fabulous with Five contest for food bloggers, I had to give it a shot. The competition required creating a recipe with a Saucy Mama condiment and only five additional ingredients. baked egg cup ingredients Having an abundance of backyard chicken eggs, I devised a simple and healthy breakfast or lunch dish. Each individual serving includes plenty of protein and, thanks to wilted spinach, a good dose of vitamins and minerals.

The recipe is perfect for a family on the go: make a triple batch and keep in the fridge for quick breakfasts or healthy packed lunch protein. It can easily be adapted to include the type of optional cheese and vegetables your family likes best.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, mustard, salt, pepper, and wilted spinach. Don't like spinach? Try steamed broccoli, wilted kale, cooked carrots, or boiled potatoes.

Pour the egg mixture into the prepared bowls and top with your favorite kind of cheese if you like. The pictured dish includes a cheddar cheese topping.

Bake for 25 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature. Store in the fridge for up to four days.
