If your busy family is like mine, you are always looking for nutritious foods to eat on the go. Sometimes you find a winner, but then your kids decide abruptly that they don’t like that old standby any more, and then what?! And then your spouse changes their work and workout routine and all of a sudden is eating a ridiculous amount of protein. The co-workers don’t enjoy the sensory experience that comes with a person eating a large quantity of hard boiled eggs every day.
Behold…egg cups. I was hunting around for something that would do triple duty for the kids’ lunches, my spouse’s need for a second breakfast on-the-go after a workout, and a quick protein snack for me. I couldn’t find quite what I was after, so I invented it. The tricky part for me is making one thing that everyone likes. Even if I find that, it has to be simple, because I don’t do fussy cooking. But egg cups? Nailed it.
