These Caprese egg cups are a healthy and high protein breakfast option to help you start your day with tomato, basil, and bocconcini cheese in a multi grain cup.
Guys, I love breakfast. It has always been my favourite meal of the day, and I fall more and more in love with it each time I write a breakfast recipe. I also am super busy and that’s where these Caprese Egg Cups really come in handy.
How to Make Caprese Egg Cups
If you’re familiar with the amazingness that is Caprese salad, you know that it’s a combination of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese. When I was in Italy, I pretty much ate it every-single-day. So it made total sense to me to throw all these flavours into a portable crispy wrap egg cup and call it breakfast.
It starts with the base- the tasty edible cup. I use Flatout Flatbreads as my base because each wrap has only 140 calories with a whopping 8 grams of fibre and 7 grams of protein in the Multigrain Flax! They’re delicious all on their own- but I have been known to get creative with them making Bieber Tails, Enchiladas, Pizza and Crepes. I used a cookie cutter about 4 1/2 inches in diameter, but you can totally use a wide jar lid and cut around it to get circles.
Then, we build our Caprese Egg Cups! Simply form the Flatout circles into greased muffin tins, and throw in a few halved cherry tomatoes, some basil, and a few baby bocconcini balls. Crack in an egg, bake away, and hello- breakfast is served! I like these warm from the oven, but they’re also very easy to freeze and then just rewarm in a microwave for busy mornings.
