One day when I was walking through the store I saw these:
A week or so later, these showed up in the store:
The regular cost of each of these items in my Meijer runs about $2.89. Periodically they are on sale for $2.50. That adds up fast if you want to buy one for each morning!! I've recently challenged myself to cut our grocery bill down so spending $15.00+ on these little egg cups a week seems excessive!
I realized that I could probably do this same concept at home for less money and guess what? I did.
This seems like such a simple idea but I am true recipe follower (Nope, could never, ever do "Chopped" HA!) so it was a little bit of a light bulb moment when I decided to try this on my own. So, simply, take a coffee mug and add two eggs. Whip them with a fork until well scrambled. I then put it in the microwave for 40 seconds. Next, I added about 1-2 Tablespoons of shredded cheese and 1-2 Tablespoons of breakfast meat (I used leftover sliced sausage links because that is what I had on hand). Mixed it well again and cooked it for 55 seconds more. Next time I'll only cook it for about 45 seconds because it was a little dry. BUT it was super easy and good. Plus, on average, it is about $1.14 a cup. That is a great savings!
