Yesterday we were invited over to one of our favorite couple's house for kind of a "non-Mothers Day"… her and I don't have children of our own, so we decided it was a good excuse to all spend the day together for some great food and great company! She served a beautiful brunch with egg cups that I just have to share with all of you because it was a real hit! The presentation took "eggs" to a whole new level because it was just so darn pretty!
Here's what she said she did...
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a "large size" muffin tin. Line the bottoms with a nice quality slice of ham to form a "cup". Next, layer a slice of sweet potato/yam (she had pre-cooked these to make it super easy), then a slice of goat cheese brie, next sprinkle some dried shallots and green onions, next crack 2 eggs into it, add another slice of goat cheese and top it all off with some bacon crumbles (she had pre-made these also). Depending on how you like the eggs, runny or hard, will depend on your cook time…so you might need to experiment a little depending on your oven. She recommended as a guideline, about 15 mins for runny yolks, and 25 mins for hard yolks. I like mine runny :)
She served the egg cups with Paleo-friendly Banana Bread and fresh berries! This was very tasty, fancy, and would be great for guests or a Sunday brunch. I will definitely be making these in the near future! Our husbands had seconds :) Have fun with it…you can't really mess this up, add or subtract any ingredients you want! Enjoy!
