Easy Zucchini Recipes: This Zucchini Egg Cups Recipe Is a Fun Way to Use That Summer Squash

An overload of zucchini and Renee Herren's ham and cheese egg cups were my inspiration for these easy zucchini egg cups. Mix and match the meats and vegetables to make it fit your family's tastes.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 zucchini, cut into thin strips using a vegetable peeler
  • 1/4 pound ham or cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 chopped red bell pepper
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Gouda, fontina, Muenster, mozzarella, Swiss, etc.)
  • red pepper flakes (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Lightly spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. Line the sides and bottom of each muffin cup with zucchini strips. 
  2. Add the chopped ham or bacon (cook and crumble first if using bacon) and red bell pepper on top of the zucchini "crust." 
  3. In a bowl, combine the eggs, cream, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes, if using. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into each muffin cup. Top with the shredded cheese.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 30 minutes.
