Jalapeño-Bacon Egg Cups

Baked eggs with bacon are the perfect vehicle for some spicy jalapeño peppers: fluffy baked eggs are the base for the smoky, fatty bacon and little pops of heat that make everything interesting without setting your eyes watering over your breakfast. If jalapeños just aren’t your thing, you could also do this one with regular mini bell peppers, or just add more of the ordinary bell peppers.

Of course, you can also play around with the other vegetables. Add mushrooms or spinach or whatever else you like instead of or on top of the peppers and onions. The great thing about recipes like this is that they’re not set in stone and just about everything is up for rearrangement depending on your test.

Egg cups are a classic for breakfast on the run – throw a couple into a bag or napkin and bring them in the car or throw them in your gym bag to scarf down after a workout. Make a big batch over the weekend and you’ll have ready-to-go breakfast all week.
