You can easily allow your egg cups to cool and then transfer into an airtight container and store them in the fridge. These will last up to 3-4 days. Then after that, you need to toss them out.
Can You Freeze Egg Cups
Yes. I have frozen these many times to prep my freezer for breakfasts for the future. Simply allow the egg cup to cool from the oven and then place in freezer bags or in an airtight container. If you place them in the container, use wax paper to separate them, as they will stick together.
Then toss in the freezer and store them for up to three months.
How To Reheat Egg Cups
Thaw your egg cups in the fridge overnight if frozen, or pull one from the fridge and reheat in the microwave. Generally, one minute to a minute and a half is all it takes. Depending on the power of your microwave will determine how long you need to reheat them.
