Layered Egg Cups - A Quick and Simple Breakfast Solution


I don't know about you, but I rarely find the time to make breakfast these days. I have three little people under five to get out of the house, my time in the morning is much better spent arguing with a 3 year old about wearing shoes.

Breakfast seems like a luxury that I just can't afford.

The kids get breakfast, of course, while I whirl around the house like a dervish frantically getting bags packed, negotiating complicated clothing arrangements with toddlers, and trying to keep the baby away from the toilet.

And then it gets to 10 am and I eat everything in the house, most of it unhealthy.

Given that this is a blog for mothers, and we are notoriously time poor, I am sure that I am not alone in my lack of breakfast consumption.

Anyway, I knew something had to change.

This Sunday, after spending most of the day in hospital waiting for X-Rays on Xavier's ankle (all clear - thank goodness), I decided to prepare my weeks breakfasts today, so all I had too do was grab and go.

I created the recipe based loosely on ones I had seen before, but never made, and finalised my plans while quickly picking up ingredients in Coles on the way home from the hospital.

And the result?

Well it was surprisingly good.

So much so that I am looking forward to breakfast tomorrow already. I know I have a tasty option sitting in the fridge.

The layered egg cups took 15 mins to prepare and then only 25 minutes to cook. While they were cooking I got other meal prep completed (and broke up several ridiculous sibling fights).

These are delicious, simple and will keep well in the fridge.

Enjoy!!
