  1. I can’t wait to try these! I have cooked scrambled eggs in the microwave in a ramekin before too (surprisingly they foam up a little and become fluffy). Do you think these can be frozen and reheated later?

    1. I’ve frozen and reheated them slowly (at 50% power). Including bread in the recipe seems to make them work better than other egg recipes.

  2. Ingenious! I’ve made BBQ cups and Pizza cups with a slice of bread at the bottom, but never would have thought of an Egg cup! I’ll be making these this afternoon with the loaf of bread that’s starting to be toast-worthy only!

    1. Ooo, both of your recipes sound delicious! I think food made in ramekins and muffin tins are going to be my new favorite way to cook. It keeps the portions reasonable!

  3. This sounds delicious. We usually only eat egg whites. Do you think this recipe would still work with egg whites only and done in muffin tins ?
    Thanks for the wonderful March menu !! Can not wait to try… need to finish off some food in the freezer first though !!

    1. Yes, you can use egg whites only! You’ll have to adjust the cooking time–I didn’t test the recipe with only egg whites or I’d tell you the exact time. Also, it doesn’t freeze quite as well but it’s still doable. Let me know how it works for you!

    1. Using egg whites help reduce the fat/calories of the recipe but you can definitely use the entire egg…just adjust the nutritional information accordingly if you are keeping track.

  4. These are by far my favorite! Awesome mix of protein and veggies, I heat them up every morning for my breakfast! Thanks for this one!

  5. What other veggies do you guys think would go good in these? We can’t have mushrooms. What about carrots maybe? Or some onion?

    1. Honestly, I think just about any vegetable can be substituted and taste great! Watery vegetables like peppers and onions can get a little watery when frozen but usually are good non-the-same.

  6. I’m new to this, and was just wanting to make sure that I’m clear on the egg instructions. I’m supposed to use 6 eggs, plus an additional 6 egg whites? Also, how do you flash freeze?
