Easy Pepperoni Breakfast Cups Recipe

I think we all like a nice, hot breakfast on a cold winter day, but we don’t like the muss and fuss that goes with preparing one, especially so early in the morning! So, while I was trying to come up with some Pepperoni recipe ideas, I decided to make a savory, hot breakfast that is also super easy to make. Even if your eyes are still a bit blurry with sleep, you’ll be able to pull this one off.



This Pepperoni Breakfast Cups recipe with Hormel Pepperoni is made in muffin tins and an easy way to make breakfast for a crowd. Two cups is a good amount for breakfast for most (maybe one for a kid or 3 for a big eater), so you can feed about 6 with each muffin pan. Pop two pans in the oven and you can feed a dozen people in no time! Here’s how:
