    Hmm…I kinda love it! But we only buy whole wheat bread at home. Hopefully this would be just as delicious with wheat toast.

    I made this for Sunday morning breakfast and my family absolutely loved it! The kids thought it was so cool to see the egg “floating” in the bread, and hubby said it was a great way to make a “finger food” (yuck!). But it was a big hit with my family and we will be including it frequently for the morning rush hour as well. Thanks for the recipe!

    I just made this. I’m going to first spray my muffin tins. My bread stuck to the bottoms because the eggs soaked my bread. I put bacon on the top of my eggs before I cooked them as well. They came out just as well if you wait to do this after baking them. I also thought this was a good recipe where I can make these up and freeze them for my lunches.

    These look great and I will try them. Do you think, if you did scrambled eggs, could you add ingredients for an omelet? Add some dices onions, peppers, mushrooms, bacon, sausage crumbles? Have you tried it?

      Brenda – I’m not sure why that wouldn’t work. I haven’t tried it, but it’s worth a shot. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!

    It would probably work fine with an egg mix. I often pour egg beaters into a muffin tin with a few veggies bake them.

    I make these with a layer of sautéed mushrooms and onions, with the tins lined with thin ham cole cuts. I serve them on toasted English muffins and cover with Bernaise sauce. Yum!
