    Egg in a cup was our Sunday breakfast EVERY SUNDAY and when I have visitors that spend a few days at my house —Egg in a cup is on the table Sunday morning. My Mum didn’t put bread in hers most of the time she would use American cheese in the cup with an egg cheese an a dash of salt then if she had no cheese that’s when she would make toast and break the lightly done toast in with the egg. I loved it and still do!!! Miss you Mum Corrine Mary Ryan gone too soon.

    We had two St. Patricks' Day celebrations and I served this dish for one of them. Everyone loved their egg prepared this way. The only thing I did different was to use less butter per egg. Thanks Bergy. Bullwinkle
