Spicy Egg Cups

This recipe comes from a Bed & Breakfast place we stayed at years ago. As with the cheesejacks, they are incredibly popular in this house. They're very easy to make in addition to being nutritious and delicious, which makes them an excellent choice for a quick snack any time of day. The nice thing is you can make as many or as few as you wish.

Spicy Egg Cups

Open an egg into a custard cup.
Add a little salsa.
Grate some cheese on top.
Sprinkle on a little parsley or basil, or both.
Pour a bit of olive oil over the whole thing.

Bake at 350º F. for 20 minutes or until set.

  1. Brilliant. I am going to the oven to try this right now! I have been meaning to make these, but kept forgetting to look up the time it needed in the oven:)). Love it!

  3. Oh, yum. That looks delicious. Sadly, I am the only one in the house now who eats eggs. Oh, wait, that means they are all for me!! I will be making this for my lunch this week.

  6. I make something similiar, but put a slice of black forest ham in the cup first as a liner, and I put a dollop of cream instead of the olive oil. And no salsa.
    Serve on a toasted English muffin. I save this for company breakfasts, or Christmas morning, but it is easy enough for anytime.

    Great picture.

  10. Kay, once you get cups you can make custard and chocolate mousse in them, too! :<)
    Colleen, 'cater' is so funny. They really are delightful. Hope you like the egg cups.
