An easy, simple breakfast recipe seems the ideal way to begin a Monday morning. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, but we don’t always have all the time in the world to prepare a fancy and indulgent dish. With this recipe, you can have a great-looking and fantastic-tasting breakfast in minutes with minimal effort.
There is a lot of room for personal additions with this recipe. How about adding cheese? Or swapping ham with pre-cooked bacon or sausage? I find a great big dollop of sauce underneath the egg really helps this recipe and makes it a lot less messy if you’re planning on eating it on the go.
This recipe makes two breakfast egg cups, but it can easily be adapted to make as many or as few as you like.
Breakfast Egg Cups
2 pieces of bread
2 slices of ham
Sauce of choice
Salt and pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 180C and lightly toast 2 pieces of bread in a toaster.
2. Using a round cutter slightly larger than your round mould, cut circles out of the toast and place them in the bottom of the moulds.
3. Dollop some sauce in the bottom of the toast cup and cover with a piece of ham. Crack an egg on top – be careful not to split the yolk! – and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, or until the yolk has set.
4. Remove from the oven and season with salt, pepper and parsley.
