These Cheesy Spinach Egg Cups may be small in size, but they're big on flavor! They're completely addictive and we can't stay away from them, So simple to make too. Here's how.
Next we'll melt some butter in a skillet and add the spinach, salt, pepper, and dried marjoram.
Saute, stirring frequently, until the spinach is dry and starts to brown a bit.
Remove the spinach from the skillet and allow it to cool completely.
When the spinach is cool, place it in a blender.
Add the eggs and cheese.
Blend on LOW speed until the mixture is combined and the spinach and cheese are cut up into small pieces.
Don't blend the mixture too much. You want to be able to see bits of spinach and cheese.
Actually, blending more will make your egg cups almost completely green, which kids really seem to enjoy. Would be good for St. Patrick's Day too.
Pour the mixture evenly into the 24 mini muffin cavities.
Bake for 10 minutes. Cool for 1-2 minutes before turning out of the pan.
That's it. Serve warm or at room temperature. I dare you not to eat way too many of these little guys. Enjoy!
