I just had a super scrumptious breakfast and I am sad that I never made this before! Hubby just can’t live without eggs for breakfast, so I’m always looking to try new things. And, this also feeds my addiction to baking stuff in muffin tins. Totally can’t get enough of it. Several of the breakfast recipes that I experimented with included separately preparing the eggs and using the “cups” to hold them. I thought, what if I could actually bake the eggs right in the cups? Now that would be seriously much easier and of course create less dishes, which is a gal’s dream come true.
I honestly was pretty surprised that these worked out perfectly. I was concerned that the eggs would leak through the bread, but to my surprise, they didn’t! Of course you’ll want to make sure you don’t have any of those common air pockets in the bread you use. Also, it’s key to make sure you press your bread into the muffin tin firmly and also push down the crusts so that everything is aligned and pressed down within the actual muffin tin. If you have crusts sticking out too far, I’d imagine they would probably burn or cook at a faster rate than the egg. But ensuring the bread and crusts are all contained in the tin, you should be good to go!
Using a few drops of milk on top of the cups should also keep your egg nice and moist. This is a trick I learned recently for baking eggs, it’s definitely a must do to get that perfect cup of eggs and toast! Nom!
So, what is your favorite breakfast to cook or eat?
