Kimchi Egg Cups

I love a simple breakfast.

I really love a breakfast that I can eat over the course of a week.

And if said breakfast also happens to be healthy and satisfying, well that’s just winning.

I prefer a savory meal to start the day, but there are weeks when I’m running out first thing and don’t have time to whip up oatmeal or cook some eggs.

Enter these kimchi eggs cups. I’ll whip a batch on Sunday, and have a protein-rich breakfast ready to eat every day throughout the week.

I prefer them with kimchi – I love the spicy flavor and the added probiotics in my diet. You can easily replace them with salsa, pesto, chopped vegetables, or even black beans and quinoa.

If I’m feeling indulgent, I’ll add some shredded sharp cheddar or a dollop of goat cheese in each cup. And I’m almost always feeling indulgent.

I’ve yet to implement a regular meal prep routine, but you’ll find me making certain meals on certain days – these burgers on Friday evenings, muffins on Saturday with Rho, and these egg cups on Sunday.

Baby steps.

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup kimchi
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a muffin tin and line with aluminum or silicone cups
  • Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, and cayenne until frothy
  • Stir kimchi and spinach into the egg mixture. Fill each muffin cup 1/2 full.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until firm and a toothpick is clean.

I use these silicone cupcake liners for this dish, and cook them in my toaster oven with this muffin pan. This salmon crispbread, egg tacos, and smoothie are my other favorite breakfasts. 

I share a new recipe on Mondays. You can find them all here

Hi.

I’m Hitha. I’m an entrepreneur, author, and activist. I also have an insatiable case of wanderlust that started when I was 5 months old, and hasn’t let up since.

I hope it doesn’t. After all, I still have Antarctica to visit.

I created Hitha On The Go to offer smart solutions so you can live your best life. I want to help you pack faster, work smarter, and live better - while looking and feeling your best.

In addition to running this website, I’m the author of How To Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip. I'm also the CEO of Rho Pharmaceuticals, a company focused on improved formulations of existing drugs.

When I'm not exploring the world, I'm in New York City with my husband and son. You can usually find me creating a new recipe, getting lost in a new book, or cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles during football season.
