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.

Went to make these wonderful little easy morsels only to discover all the ham had been finished so just put some diced hot pepperoni on top of the egg and then topped with cheese bunged it in the oven for 15 minutes and voila breakfast. My eggs were firmed set all the way through which suited the DM beautifully so when making again will cut the time back to 10 or 12 minutes to have a slightly runny yolk which is what I like unless planning on having them cold then would cook for the 15 minutes. Thank you Dienia B, made for 123 Hits tag game.

Very creative, cute and yummy! I like the idea you can make however many you need. The egg was just right for my muffin tin. Next time I'll use less eggs and mix them in a bowl with add-ins and then fill the cup. My toddler son scarfed these down, thank you for a great breakfast!
