Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Cups

Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Eggs, asparagus, chives, cheese and bacon tucked into a crispy wonton cup.

The kids and I have a lot of tree work to do today and I needed some ready-made healthy protein and veggies to keep me going, so I thought these breakfast cups would be a good start and snack today.

We’re still cleaning up trees and branches that broke in the ice storm last month. It’s a beautiful day today … I’m going to enjoy working outside, now that I’ve got a good breakfast in my belly.

Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Cups

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 12 - 18 cups

Serving Size: 1 or 2 cups

Bacon Asparagus Breakfast Cups

Ingredients

  • 12 - 18 wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 6 eggs
  • About 2 tablespoons fresh snipped chives
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon Red Robin Seasoning (or your favorite seasoned salt)
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 2 - 3 slices of bacon, fried till crisp and crumbled
  • About 2 cups of shredded Italian blend of cheeses

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, then gently push a wonton wrapper into each cup. Spray lightly with cooking spray, then set the muffin tin into the oven and bake for 5 - 10 minutes or until the wonton cups are just lightly browned and crisp. Watch them carefully!
  3. Steam the asparagus until they are crisp tender, then plunge into ice water to keep them from overcooking. Drain off the ice water and towel dry with a clean towel.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the chives, water, garlic, and seasoning. Stir in the asparagus into the egg mixture, then scramble the eggs and asparagus in a frying pan sprayed with cooking spray, but leave them just slightly wet and undercooked.
  5. Now, take the wonton cups and put a tablespoon or so of shredded cheese in the bottom of each cup. (This is important to keep the bottoms of the cups crispy.) Add some of the egg/asparagus mixture to each cup to fill it to the top, then top with a little more cheese and a few crumbles of bacon. If you have extra egg mixture, you can eat it as is ... or make a few more cups!
  6. Bake for 5 minutes or so or until the cheese on top is melted. Set them on a serving platter.
  7. They are best served fresh and hot, but they are good cold too.

Notes

You can prep the wonton cups, egg mixture and bacon ahead of time (storing the wonton cups in an airtight container and the eggs in a container in the fridge) and then reheat the eggs, fill and bake the cups right before serving time.

  2. These look and sound great! I don’t have any asparagus right now, but I’m sure I could come up with something else, spinach maybe!

    My Recipe Club is having a brunch this month and I think I will take these. They look delicious! In the picture, it looks like you used 2 wrappers per cup, but the recipe calls for just one. Which do you recommend?

    Thanks!

      I would recommend one … if you use two, the cups get kind of tough and chewy. Not an issue if you’re eating them as leftovers because they soften up then, but if you want to serve them crunchy, they will be crunchier if you use just one.
