  • Butter a 12-cup muffin tin. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Press each slice of bread, buttered side up, gently into the bottom of a muffin cup. Transfer to oven and bake for 3 minutes.

  • Gently press ham into each bread cup. Carefully, crack one egg on top of ham. Repeat process until all bread cups are filled. Season each with salt and pepper; top with 1/2 teaspoon cream.

  • Carefully transfer muffin tin to oven and bake eggs until whites are just set, 10 to 15 minutes. Using an offset spatula, remove bread cups from muffin tin and transfer to a serving plate. Garnish with chives and cheese; serve immediately.

I missed the step with the heavy cream. What do I do with it?

We had a snow day, here in Niagara, so I figured I would try these....while, at first, skeptical, my husband tried them and loved them! I didn't have any cream, so I just skipped that step. They were easy to make and a big success.Will make these again.

Instead of the wheat bread, you could also use those frozen pastry shells that are sold in the grocery store made out of the phyllo dough. I was at a bed and breakfast where they served something like this, only scrambled eggs, in those pastry shells. It was a elicious and very attractive way to serve eggs!!

These were excellent! We dont eat pork so I used turkey sausage links cut up instead. We also tried different cheeses-cheddar and mozzarella, etc. We liked the mozzarella best. My husband loved them. I like the idea that you can make a bunch for guests w/o adding much time. Since my husband and I approved, I will keep these in mind for us and when we have people over. Yum!

The kids and I made them for dinner last night. I substituted the ham for sausage links and used my mini bundt pan, cause i don't have muffin pans. I used red onion and guryere cheese. The kids ate the whole thing. That never happens!!

I guess it would be fine to have soft scrambled eggs in the cups as well? Sounds delicious. Great ideas comes from that Everyday Food bunch.....great job guys!

Sounds good. What about a spoonful of Hollandaise sauce and herbs?
