There’s more to be done with Thanksgiving leftovers than jamming them between slices of bread for a no-fuss sandwich.
Make the most of the extra turkey and stuffing by using them to make these genius egg cups!
Combined with eggs and some seasoning, these cups will make your busy post-Thanksgiving mornings so much easier.
These egg cups are great for meal prep since you prepare 12 servings at once.
And after stressing out over a complicated Thanksgiving dinner menu, an easy meal prep to last you for the week is probably exactly what you need!
Turkey and Stuffing Egg Cups
Make the most of your leftover turkey and stuffing by using them to make these genius egg cups!
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- ½ cup onion, finely chopped
- ½ cup celery, finely chopped
- 1½ cups roasted turkey breast (approximately 7 oz.), finely chopped
- 3 cups leftover (prepared) stuffing
- 12 large eggs
- Ground black pepper (to taste; optional)
Heat oven to 350° F.
Lightly coat a twelve-cup muffin tin with spray. Set aside.
Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add onion and celery; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
Add turkey and stuffing; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until well mixed.
Evenly press stuffing mixture into prepared muffin cups.
Crack an egg into each muffin cup. Season with pepper.
Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until eggs are set.
Let cups sit in pan for 10 minutes before removing them. Use a butter knife to gently separate each cup from the muffin pan.
Tip: Make sure to use a whole-grain, lower fat prepared stuffing to make these delicious cups.
If your stuffing doesn’t pack together well into a muffin cup, or is made from whole grains, we recommend scrambling the eggs and mixing all of the ingredients together before adding to the muffin tins.
