Baked Egg Cups Topped With Cotija

I don’t know about you but on a relaxing Sunday I like to get into the kitchen and make something warm and comforting for my family for breakfast. Baked egg cups are not only easy to make and no fuss but they are delicious.

I usually cook one or two per person depending on how hungry everybody is.

You will need a large muffin tin, one egg per muffin and I like to use Bays English muffins because they are buttery and fluffy when they cook, some cooking spray and of course butter.

Also, you can get creative with toppings that you like. Sometimes we like to make homemade tomatillo salsa, chipotle salsa , Cotija cheese or cheddar cheese.

I have also put salsa in the bottom of the cup before I place the egg inside and that is also very yummy.

To make:

In each muffin pan spray with cooking spray and place a teaspoon of butter. Next, place your English muffin, one half, into the muffin cup. You will need to press it down so that it begins to look like a cup inside the muffin pan. Add a half a tablespoon of butter in the center of the cup. Next, crack one medium to large size egg directly into the center of each of the cups. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Them sit for a few minutes before you serve topped with whatever toppings you like.20141012-093718-34638013.jpg
