2020 is shaping up to be my year of meal prep folks. No more panicking before mealtimes and no more over-sized portions. For me, planning my meals ahead of time is key to reaching my nutrition goals for the year.
Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite breakfast meal prep meals, these Sausage Tomato Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Cups with the help of my friends from Tuttorosso Tomatoes.
If you caught my Stuffed Pepper Soup back in November, you know I’m a huge fan of Tuttorosso Tomatoes. Their products have been staples in my pantry for years.
We all want the meals we prepare for our families to be made with quality ingredients right? I don’t know about you guys, but I want to be confident that what I’m serving my family and friends will be top notch and delicious.
Well, if you’re serving Tuttorosso’s products, you’re serving your family the best of the best. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
For today’s recipe, I used Tuttorosso’s Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano. They’re made with premium ingredients with a perfect balance of herbs and spices. The tomatoes are picked at the peak of ripeness and Tuttorosso’s cans have a special liner that locks in all that fresh tomato flavor. The result is quality you can see and taste.
These sensational cups are jam-packed full of goodness. Tomatoes, chopped baby spinach leaves, pork sausage, fresh mozzarella, eggs, half and half and some cubed french bread.
The prep time is less than 20 minutes and the bake time is around 30-35 minutes. The recipe makes eight 8-ounce cups and you can enjoy them for any meal of the day. I love making them on a Sunday night or Monday morning and then enjoy them throughout the week.
If you don’t have individual ramekins, the recipe with also work with a standard size muffin tin. Just divide the egg mixture among the muffin cups and bake until cups are set and lightly browned on top.
So don’t skip the most important meal of the day guys. Treat yourself to these easy, healthy, high-protein, on-the-go cups! They’re the perfect portion size and totally delish. Enjoy!
A Few Cook’s Notes for Sausage Tomato Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Cups Recipe:
As mentioned above, if you don’t have individual ramekins, you can use a standard muffin pan. The recipe will make eight 8-ounce ramekins or about 12-14 standard size muffins.
I added some fresh mozzarella, but you could also use cheddar, fontina or whatever you prefer.
I used fresh baby spinach leaves with stems trimmed and then roughly chopped.
