Grab and Go Paleo Egg Cups

These paleo egg cups are going to make us look like we are winning at life. Promise!

Delicious grab and go paleo egg cups! Perfect for paleo meal prep!

You know what I am not winning at? Coping with the end of summer. And how do I know it is the end of summer?

Back. To. School. Photos.

First, these photos are in fact making me so happy! Why? Well it turns out you all have the cutest kids in the world. Gracious.

These photos are also making me all kinds of anxious – because, bye summer.

Related: Why is it the end of August? Why didn’t I eat more junk food and sleep in more and take more trips? WHY?!

Anyway, I decided to calm myself down by making a batch of paleo egg cups for the week. I make them on Sunday and then Jeremy and I grab them in the morning throughout the week for breakfast. This is especially perfect for your super cute kids! A quick but filling, delicious, and healthy breakfast.

But before we dive in (stay with me!) I created something fun for us! An Invitation to Five Days at the Table! When you sign-up you will get:

  2. My go-to favorite recipe that will awe your family and friends (this recipe is not on my blog. Also, I have made it three times in the past two weeks! Also, I am literally writing this post while eating the leftovers of said secret recipe.)
  3. A downloadable print with the quote I have hanging up in my kitchen (different from the one included for people who pre-order my new book Come and Eat). 

The best part? It’s all FREE. Just sign-up here. Let’s keep inspiring each other to come to the table!

Ok, now for the food ; )

Paleo Egg Cups {A Paleo Breakfast}

They are so easy! I make sausage paleo egg cups and ham paleo egg cups.

First we prep the muffin baking dish thing (<—culinary term) with oil because we are trying to make our lives easier. This coconut oil from Trader Joe’s is where it’s at. (But you can use any oil you have on hand.)

For the sausage, I just buy some ground Italian pork sausage. Slice it into patties:

Make little cups by pressing the patty into the muffin tin and molding it up the sides:

Nothing fancy. We’re making this quick and easy.

For the ham, just make little cups with each slice:

I like using deli ham that has no nitrates and has not been processed (to keep with the clean eating):

An egg goes into each cup. Little cuties!

This is the fun part. Add any veggies you have on hand! For the sausage paleo egg cups I used red diced onions and diced tomatoes.

For the ham I used diced bell peppers and more diced red onion.

Then we bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes! The eggs will fully set. So it looks sunny side up (pretty) but fully cooked (for the kids!).
