I don't know about you, but in our house there are days we eat breakfast on the go. Breakfast Won Ton Cups are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast solution (shout out to Mysha & Ashley over at Our Creative Nest).
Breakfast Won Ton Cups
You Will Need
- 4 eggs
- 1/4-1/2 cup cream cheese (depending on how much you love cream cheese, you can also trade for shredded cheese, but you're eggs won't be as creamy)
- Breakfast meat of your choice (I use 4 strips of bacon/turkey bacon or 1/2 cup ground sausage)
- 12 won ton wrappers (usually found in the produce or semi-refridgerated section)
- Cupcake tin
1. Preheat oven to 400ºF
2. Start cooking your choice of breakfast meat
3. Scramble the eggs until they are about halfway done
4. Add cream cheese and continue cooking the eggs
5. Once eggs are cooked and the cream cheese is incorporated, add breakfast meat (if using bacon, cut into small pieces so it's easy to mix in with the eggs)
5. Place a won ton wrapper in each cup of a cupcake. I like to lay them flat across each opening and then use my pointer and middle finger on both hands to press it down evenly into the cupcake tin.
6. Place a scoop of the egg/cheese/meat mixture into each won ton cup until all the cups are filled (about 2 tablespoons in each cup).
7. Place tin in the preheated oven and bake for 4-6 minutes until the edges are brown.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a couple minutes in the cupcake tin. When you pick one up, it should hold it's shape, if the cup is still soft, place back in the tin and back in the oven for another minute or two.
9. Serve and enjoy!
Can you use substitutes? YES!! In case you didn't notice, this is not an "exact science" kind of recipe. If you like extra meat, add it in. If you're a vegetarian, replace the meat with some veggies. If you want everything but the kitchen sink, throw it all in! That's the best part about these on-the-go breakfast cups, they're super versatile and can be customized for any eater! Stay tuned, I'll be sharing a Taco Cup recipe soon.
What if I can't find won tons? Check your local grocery store, if they don't have them, ask if they can get them. If I can find them in a grocery store in my small town, I'm sure they'll being coming to a store near you soon if they aren't already there.
Can I reheat these? If you make plenty and have some left overs, just pop them in a tupperware and refrigerate until you're ready to put them back in the tins and reheat and eat (you can also microwave them if you have one, but they won't be as crispy). I wouldn't suggest keeping them in the fridge longer than a couple days.
