Recipe: Cream cheese cups

Ok, that’s the name I’m using for them. Officially. Cream. Cheese. Cups.
Guys, you are seriously going to rage when you hear how simple these are and how basic the recipe is – *I’m sorry* for taking longer than I said I would to post this. I’m still adjusting to life going from working zero time to full time, plus a 2-hour commute and the gym and meal prepping. It’s a lot. I’m trying my best!
ANYWAY.
This is what I’ve been eating for breakfast lately and they’re the bomb.com.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz neufchatel cream cheese (lower carb than regular cream cheese; check the brand though. Kroger and Philadelphia have ~1g net carb per serving; Great Value brand has 2)
  • 4-6 large eggs (I like 4 lately! Play around with it to see what you like πŸ˜„)

That’s it. End of ingredients.
SEE WHAT I MEAN, HOW EASY THESE THINGS ARE?!

Preheat your oven to 350. Soften the cream cheese, then combine it with the eggs. Mix it up (I use an immersion blender; a food processor or mixer would work too) until it’s like a soupy batter. Pour it into silicone muffin cups (I mix mine in a 4cup measuring cup for easy pouring) or a WELL-greased muffin tin (Note: I haven’t tried that; my old egg cups always stuck so I bought the silicone ones and love them). Don’t overfill! These *will* rise when they cook. I stick to about 1/2 full cups.
Cook at 350 for 25 minutes. Boom. Done.

Makes 12 cups, macros for 1 using my exact ingredients are:
82 cals / 0.7g carbs / 6.5g fat / 5g protein

Now, these are kind of like savory cheesecake taste. They’re not eggy to me, but it’s not like eating a big bite of pure cream cheese. You can totally make them your own – add cinnamon, splenda, spices, cheese, veggies, bacon, sausage, whatever! This is just the base recipe to get you going, and what I’ve been posting pictures of for a while. I haven’t gotten fancy with mine yet; I like the originals too much.

Oh, and – store these in the fridge. I keep mine in a ziploc container and they’re fine for a week. Maybe longer, idk – mine are always gone before that.

  1. These are FANTASTIC! I add a little bacon & sauteed onion – OMG – I could eat them all in one sitting. But that would be wrong… wrong…
