Egg Cups

We eat eggs about once a week.  We might have them for a late breakfast on a lazy Saturday or sometimes we make “breakfast for dinner”.  It is usually scrabbled but sometimes we change it up with soft boiled eggs.

I have been seeing eggs made in muffin tins for a while on Pinterest and I thought maybe I will finally get around to trying it for my egg series (this is number 11 if you are counting)!

Here’s how I made mine…  I preheated the oven to 350 and greased a muffin tin with olive oil.  Then I lined each cup with a slice of ham and poured in scrambled egg mixture (one egg per cup).  I cooked them for 20 minutes then topped with shredded cheddar and green onions and put them under the broiler until golden.  They turned out great!  I served them with sliced strawberries and everyone loved them!  I liked that it made cooking breakfast less hectic because I wasn’t tending to eggs on the stove while trying to get everything else ready at the same time.

What is your favorite way to serve eggs?  Please share!

  1. I’ve seen eggs cooked this way and wasn’t sure how they’d turn out. Good to hear it worked…. I’ll have to try it soon.

  2. Happy Easter, Ann! I am going to come back and look at this delicious looking recipe when I decide which frittata/omelette/quiche to do in my pans. Have been holding off on that until I found something special, and this looks great!

    • Oh, yes, eggs in the donut tin! You could serve them with something in the hole, maybe hollandaise! Or maybe perfect for a bagel sandwich!

  3. Most of the times we are having scrabbled eggs, too…I guess the reason why is – it is the easiest way 😉 But the Egg Cups look pretty simple to make as well!
    Pinterest – making me feel guilty I do not experiment enough in the kitchen since I first logged in there! :)))

    • I noticed I was more relaxed when we sat down to this breakfast compared to the rush rush when I usually make eggs.
