Breakfast Cups

Now that the schools are back, it's kind of nice getting into our routine again.

As much as I enjoy a long lie, it adds so many more hours to my day getting up, eating breakfast with Agent M then getting dressed to start the day.

Here in Scotland though it's been rather cold of late so I've been wanting to make sure Agent M has a warm breakfast to start him off. That's where these delicious breakfast cups come in.

They are simple to make using a deep muffin tin and you can add many different ingredients to change it up each morning.

I made ham and cheese, since that is Agent M's favourite ... This is how I made them.

You'll need

6 slices of bread
3 eggs
A splash of milk
3/4 slices of cooked ham
50g grated cheese
Fry-light To grease 
Salt and pepper to season

To make
  • Heat the oven to 180c and grease the muffin tin with the fry-light.
  • Cut the crusts off of the bread and flatten it out. Place a slice over a space in the tray and press in. You will need to overlap a little of the bread to make it fit. This will serve as the edible "cup". Repeat for the remaining 5 slices.
  • In a bowl mix the eggs, milk and seasoning together. Pour the mix equally in the 6 bread cups.
  • Shred the ham slices and distribute them among the cups and sprinkle in the grated cheese.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the egg mix has fully set. You can check by inserting a knife into the middle of the cup. It should come out clean when cooked.
There are loads of different ingredients you can use and they don't have to be exclusively for breakfast. Why not make them for lunch with sliced hot dog or fresh tomato and diced onion.
