Need a new idea for a healthy breakfast? My friend made this for me for breakfast one morning and I thought it was so delicious and clever — and it only took her about 15 minutes to whip up! It is fun to eat and, with lots of protein and nutrients, a great breakfast to start out the school day.
To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and then line the tins with a slice of turkey. (A good option is to look for organic turkey breast because it is free of antibiotics and nitrites.)
Once you have your tins lined, scoop a small amount of salsa in the bottom. After the salsa, crack one egg into each turkey “cup.” Place the muffin tin into the oven and bake for about 8 minutes or until the eggs have set. Pull the tin out of the oven and sprinkle with a little bit of crumbled feta or shredded mozzarella cheese. Put back in the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted. The turkey cups should come cleanly out of the tins. The result is a delicious, protein rich breakfast to enjoy at home or take on the go!
For bonus nutrition and flavor, serve with fresh fruit on the side!
