Broccoli, Scallion & Cheddar Egg Cups

I’ve spent a good portion of this AM in the kitchen as I wanted to get some meal prepping in.

These are SO good and easy to both fridge or freeze for later in the week. My kid loves them, too.

NOTE: When I originally crafted this recipe I included 1/2 tsp of pink Himalayan salt, which was added in Step 7. I found that the cheese added enough salt for my taste so I removed it. However, I wanted to note this in case you are more of a salt-lover and want to add some of the 1/2 tsp back in.
