Egg Cups

by Cate on October 3, 2008

Egg CupsI’m always on the lookout for something new to make for breakfast on Sunday mornings.  Usually it’s pancakes, since Nicholas‘ pancake rut continues, or a platter of eggs, bacon and toast.  Last weekend, though, I took a slight diversion with these Egg Cups.  I found the inspiration on Carmen Cooks’ website and thought they would be a great way to start our morning.

Nicholas is a hard sell when it comes to eggs.  He loves egg sandwiches, and occasionally wants eggs sunny side up, but only to eat the yolks.  And sometimes he pretends he doesn’t like eggs at all.  I figured I had half a shot with these — he’ll eat toast, he’ll eat eggs.  But will he eat them together?

Turns out the answer is no.  He poked at it, turned it around a few times and made some half-hearted attempts at trying it, but he really wasn’t buying it.  That’s ok, everyone else liked them, and I had pancakes in the freezer as back-up, so as Emeril would say, everyone was happy, happy, happy.

Like eggs?  Like toast?  Then you’ll like these.  An uber-quick breakfast that makes it look like you fussed over it.  And I promise you, there’s nothing fussy about it.

I discovered Carmen Cooks from Sarah’s Cucina BellaDine and Dish is doing her annual Adopt-A-Blogger event, and Sarah adopted Carmen, a new blogger on the foodie block.  So go on over and check her out.  Her fried chicken is looking mighty tasty.

Hungry for more egg recipes?
Kitchen Parade has a crazy amount of egg recipes to keep you occupied for quite awhile.
Serious Eats went with a Pasta with Zucchini and Beaten Egg Yolk dish.
And Rasa Malaysia has one of my favorite bakery-bought desserts … Portuguese Egg Cups.

Long time reader, first time commenter. I just saw a recipe like this in a MaCall’s recipe collection from the late 1960s! They look good and I’m going to be trying them myself this weekend!

Looks good. This makes me think of one of the things my little patient said this morning. He’s pretty picky about eating but REALLY needs to b/c he’s so small from cystic fibrosis. I asked him if he was going to eat his breakfast and he said if they bring something I like. When I asked him what he liked he wouldn’t answer so I started suggesting things. When I said eggs, he said yes…but not the kind they bring. I asked him what kind he liked and he said “um……..the kind where you can poke the yellow part!” SO CUTE!

Oh yum! I love love love eggs, and the runny yolk is the best part, especially when there’s toast to soak it up! These look great!

Chrissy – whoa, the 60s? How fun!

Claire – hope they make them soon for him. :(

Thanks, Jenny!

Andrea – my problem is having the right amount of toast for the egg yolks – I’m always short on one side or the other. ;) Like the age-old cereal vs. milk problem.
