Bell Pepper & Turkey Sausage Egg Cups - Low Carb WLS Recipe

I talk about what I call “egg cups” more than once a day in my office. If I had to pick what my number one question I get asked is…it would probably be “what on earth can I do for an easy breakfast?!”

I’ve mentioned this before on the a recipe I shared using the same idea with mushrooms and swiss. Which is what I love about this- it so so easy to vary the ingredients! Think all of the ways to make a omlette…that’s exactly what we’ve got going on here. Whisk together eggs and add a little cottage cheese (only for baking purposes- you won’t know it’s there in case you have an aversion to cottage cheese…) Then add in whatever ingredients you love in a omlette!

  1. Ohhh! This one looks very nice! I may have to try my first recipe!

  2. Do you cook the turkey sausage before you bake or is uncooked okay!? Can’t wait to try!

  3. I recommend cooking it! I actually use the pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbles…but if you are using raw sausage, cook it first!

  4. I made these today for work and everyone loved them. I added a bit of salsa to my mix but probably didn’t add enough. Also served salsa with it. YUMMY!!!! Can’t wait to try different ideas within my egg cup omletes! :)

  5. @Dana yes absolutely! It amazes me how well egg does. I do try and remove it to the refrigerator the night before to thaw and then heat in the microwave.

  6. I loved this recipe! I made it tonight and will be enjoying the egg cups for the next few days. Going to freeze a few too.

  7. These look great, I have some turkey italian sausage in the freezer that would work perfect. Now that I have had surgery I always have cottage cheese in the fridge. It’s my best friend!

  8. @desertgirl62122 You got it! Sounds like you’ll be enjoying this soon!
