Cajun breakfast cups may sound like a difficult recipe, but it is just a small twist to your regular breakfast style.
Instead of toasting the bread and making egg omelets separately, we arrange everything together into small bite-sized cups. These adorable cups definitely bring a smile to everyone's faces.
Another surprising element in this baked breakfast cups recipe is the Cajun seasoning. Its mildly spiced flavors boosts up the flavors that no one can resists.
Added to this, the leftovers can be frozen for later use. You may also make in large quantities and store them.
- Any variety of bread can be used for this Cajun breakfast cups, use whole wheat bread to make this healthy. Here I have used honey wheat bread. Multigrain bread and white bread also tastes evenly good.
- I have removed the brown sides of bread. But you may leave them as it is.
- I used spinach, onion, green peppers, tomato along with eggs. But you can use any choices of vegetables like a mushroom, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
- Sprinkling cheese on the top would give more taste and flavor. But I have not used cheese in this recipe.
- Making single serve Cajun breakfast cups? or do not want to use your muffin tins for baking? use your own oven-safe bowl for baking.
- Add more eggs, if you prefer to. And it does taste yummy as well.
- Chop spinach leaves, if they are large.
