Baked Eggs With Variations

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

These are fast to do and you don't have to watch them too much. Mom Florence made these for breakfast. She made the simple ones. I came up with the different variations. There are many variations you can do. You can tailor breakfast to the person. They cook in the muffin tin.

This was so much fun. Instead of muffin tins, I used ramekins, which I greased before putting in the bread. I trimmed the crusts off the bread, and the slice did not quite come up to the top edge of the ramekin. Used ham and two eggs in each ramekin, plus some green onion and sharp cheddar. I ran a knife around the ramekin and the cups came right out. The eggs whites were almost fluffy, really nice. I want to try these with some chorizo and queso fresco or a similar cheese.
