I wanted to find a recipe I could make on Sundays that would create super easy to grab, protein filled breakfasts for my husband, the kids and me. When I was asked to create a breakfast recipe using Jarlsberg USA cheese and Avocados from Mexico, I immediately thought of breakfast cups. These are easy to make and are a healthy breakfast option full of protein to keep your energy up.
Egg, Jarlsberg and Avocado Breakfast Cup Recipe:
1 avocado (We like Avocados from Mexico)
1/2 lb Jarlsberg cheese, shredded
Phyllo dough sheets – I used 4. I think to make life even easier you could grab some shells already baked.
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350
Shred cheese, pit your avocado and chop it up finely. (I love a non stick knife for avocados).
Crack 6 eggs into a mixing bowl, add ground pepper to taste, whisk briskly, then add your avocado.
Lightly grease your muffin pan, then put phyllo sheets into each muffin cup- I cut to fit. Put about 2 tbsp of egg/ avocado mixture into each cup. Sprinkle with the shredded Jarlsberg. Bake the breakfast cups about 20 minutes at 350.
Here’s the #BreakfastDuos clue I have for you, which might help you win a prize during our Twitter Party on April 16th at 7pm EST: The world’s first avocado was grown and cultivated in Mexico. Kind of cool, no? We’ve been having a lot of fun learning more about avocados, and we are trying to grow avocado plants from the pit used in this recipe. I do hope you’ll join us for the #BreakfastDuos Twitter party- we’ll be talking lots about yummy foods and of course there will be ($100++ value) prizes!
