Mixing Tools – To reign everything together in this  3-Ingredient Breakfast Cups recipe without making too many dishes, grab a large mixing bowl and a rubber spatula or spoon.

Muffin Pan – A standard 12-cup muffin pan is the ideal tool to make perfectly uniform breakfast cups. You can use a non-stick muffin pan to help you avoid any sticking.

If you have a silicone muffin pan, that is the ideal dish for this 3-Ingredient Breakfast Cups recipe because it makes popping out the finished breakfast cups so easy.

If you don’t have silicone, don’t panic, just be sure to grease the edge of the muffin pan a little and run a knife around the edge of each cup to loosen the edges of breakfast cups.


Chicken Filet Sandwich Topping – This meaty sandwich topping has a lot more potential than just sandwiches! In this tasty breakfast the sandwich topping adds juicy, tender chicken flavor as well as plenty of healthy protein.

In addition to nice lean energy, chicken is loaded with vitamin B6 which is essential for the health of your immune and nervous systems.

Eggs – You cannot have breakfast without eggs and in this dish the eggs are everything! They act as a sort of batter that holds all the other ingredients together. Making these cups so rich and luscious that they are almost like a savory custard or souffle.

Not only do eggs bring an unbeatable creamy texture and taste to this dish but they are also loaded with health benefits. Eggs have lots of protein and saturated fat. Plus they are loaded with iron which helps keep your red blood cells healthy.

Shredded Cheese – To make this simple savory breakfast even more complex and delicious choose your favorite blend of shredded cheese.

Shredded cheese is ideal for recipes where you want a nice melty cheese texture but it may surprise you that shredded cheese is not actually made to melt. Most brands of shredded cheese contain anti-coagulating agents that stop the shreds from sticking together but they also inhibit the cheese from fully melting. That’s why you can still pick out the shape of the shreds after they cook. If you want a truly melty shred, grab a brick of cheese and shred it yourself.

Italian Seasoning – Italian seasoning is a common blend of herbs that are popular in Italian cooking but they can be used virtually everywhere. It contains herbs and spices like basil, oregano, rosemary, marjoram, and thyme, so if you do not have the blend just mix some up with the herbs in your spice drawer.

This delicious combination of herbs also helps to boost your health with plenty of vitamin C fiber, potassium, and more!
