Egg & Turkey Cups

Meagan Olson
"I love making this dish for a number of reasons. It is simple to make, it's nutritionally sound and by baking them in a muffin tin everyone gets to eat together! That and they look so gourmet everyone thinks that I've taken a ton of time to prep them! They will be on the table for Father's Day this year but are simple enough for any Saturday afternoon."
