Herbed Scrambled Eggs With Cheese In Toast Cups

Beautiful Beginnings:

This week my friend Cathy came for breakfast. I set up a little table in my living room. See the tablescape

I served delicious eggs laced with fresh herbs and cheese in crispy toast cups.

Recipe: Herbed Scrambled Eggs With Cheese In Toast Cups

Recipe:Toast Cups:
White bread

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Butter white bread. I call this kind of bread “bunny bread”.

Press bread, butter side down, into the cups of a muffin pan. Make sure the crust of the bread is arranged in an open position .

Bake cups in oven for 20 minutes.  Remove cups from muffin pan. Set aside.  Toast cups will be slightly browned and very crisp. Cups can be made a day ahead and re-warmed.
Recipe: Herbed Scrambled Eggs With Cheese In Toast Cups
Serves 4
8 large eggs
3/4 cup egg beaters or egg substitute
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper
1/2 -3/4 cup grated cheese (I used sharp cheddar, I had it on hand. Fontina would be delicious)
fresh herbs, finely chopped- about 3 TBS (I use fresh chives and parsley- this is my favorite combo)
2 TBS butter
Break eggs into a large bowl. Add egg beaters and milk. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk vigorously until smooth amd full of air.
Heat butter in a large skillet. Watch it carefully so it does not burn. Add eggs and keep stirring. You want them to scramble and not solidify like an omlet. When eggs are developing into small clumps and there is no liquid eggs in the pan, gently stir in fesh herbs and cheese. Keep on heat just until grated cheese is melted.
Plate toat cups, and over fill with eggs. Let the eggs spill over the cups onto the plate. Top with fresh herbs.

    O.MY.GOSH. !! This looks absolutely delicious. And so pretty, too. I just happen to have every thing on hand EXCEPT the fresh herbs. I want to make this for my hubby in the morning so I will try it with dried spices. Then, when I go to the groc. store, I’ll get the fresh herbs. We have so much snow and ice, it will be awhile before I go. Oh, my….I LOVE the sound of these egg cups. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

    First of all, I adore scrambled eggs. Secondly, I love chives. Now, I am starving! LOL! But I need to blog first.

    This would be the perfect treat for me. My favorite meal is breakfast if I am not the one who cooks it! Sound delicious and the pictures are great!

    It all looks so scrumptious Yvonne! I like that you scrambled the eggs for the toast cups ~ and you cook your bacon JUST the way I like it. 😀

    Everything looks perfect ~ wonderful photos, too!
    2 hours until bedtime and you have me craving breakfast. xo

    Goody! I was so hoping that you would do a tutorial on these. They just looked so fantastic! Maybe it was the china too. These would be so great to serve for a spring luncheon. Do you know that I have gained 5 pounds since finding your blog? Oh well, more of me to love right?!

    This looks terrific. When my kiddos were small we used to cut up toast and then scramble it in the eggs….we called it Egg Toast. They loved it and this looks like a very grown-up version. YUM!! I’m sure your friend felt very special sharing this meal at your lovely sunny table.

    I see you have carnival glass dishes. I love this glass (along with pink and green depression glass, LOL).
    Thanks for the recipe.

    I don’t even care for eggs that much but this recipe & the beautiful photos of it make me crave them!! Hubby will love this next week…he’ll be so impressed with the presentation. 😀

    Your photos make me cry they are so beautiful, Yvonne. I wanna be just like you when I grow up. (although I’m sure I’m older than you…LOL)
    Thank you for brightening my world by sharing yours.
