What Is The Best Way To Reheat Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups?
You have three different options for reheating your ham and egg breakfast cups.
First, you can use the microwave. This is the quickest and easiest way to reheat your ham and egg cups. Place your egg cups on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, until your breakfast cup is warm all the way through. With my microwave this takes about 1 minute, 30 seconds total.
Second option is reheating in the oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place your meal prepped breakfast cups on a baking sheet. Heat in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until warm.
For the third option, you can use your air fryer. Place your egg cups inside your air fryer basket, and then cook at 330 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes or until warm all the way through.
How Long Can I Store These Breakfast Cups in the Fridge?
Weight Watchers Breakfast Ham and Egg Cups can be stored in the fridge for about 4 to 5 days. Because these breakfast cups store so well, this makes them a great candidate for Sunday meal prep.
I don’t know about you, but I love having breakfast prepped and ready to go, on busy mornings. That way I can stick to my WW points and goals.
What Can I Top These Weight Watchers Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups With?
I have some delicious suggestions for topping your breakfast cups that are all zero WW points.
- sliced green onions
- fresh basil
- fresh parsley
- non-fat Greek yogurt (plain tastes like sour cream)
- Pico de Gallo
What Should I Serve With These Breakfast Cups?
I like to serve my breakfast with a fruit or vegetable side. You can eat them alone also if you would like. I hope you enjoy this simple and guilt free breakfast recipe as part of your weight loss journey.
How to Make Meal-Prep Breakfast Cups – Step by Step Instructions with Photos
Here’s a step by step guide to making breakfast ham and egg meal prep cups.
Gather all the ingredients that you need to make your breakfast cups. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray the muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Once you have sprayed your muffin tin, place a slice of ham in each of the 12 muffin tin cavities, forming a cup.
Add a spoonful (1-2 Teaspoons) of shredded cheese on top of the ham in each cup.
Carefully crack an egg into each cup of ham and cheese, keeping the yolk intact. (If it breaks, it will still be delicious but more similar to scrambled eggs.) Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on how soft or hard you prefer your eggs.
Remember that if you are using these for meal prep and plan to reheat them, you might want the eggs on the softer side since they will cook a bit more during reheating.
Carefully remove your Weight Watchers ham and egg breakfast cups from the muffin tins and serve while still warm.
If you are making these WW friendly breakfast cups for meal prep, be sure to allow your ham and egg cups to cool completely before you move them to a container for the fridge or freezer.
