Baked Eggs and Cheese in Toast Cups

I’ve been trying to come up with some breakfast ideas that are healthy and include protein to get my day started off right. I recently received a copy of Snack Girl to review and discovered a super fun recipe that I would like to (with permission) share with you: Baked Eggs and Cheese in Toast Cups.

This breakfast dish is not only healthy, but I also find it super fun for the kids. When I make delicious, fun breakfasts, the kids eat a proper meal to start off their day. It is important to me that they go to school properly fed and ready to learn. This includes serving them a properly balanced breakfast.

Baked Eggs and Cheese in Toast Cups
Recipe Type: breakfast
Author: Snack Girl
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon butter (salted or unsalted)
  • 1 slice 100% whole-wheat bread
  • 1 tablespoon grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Soften the butter in the micro- wave (if using a ramekin, just put it in the dish).
  3. Using a paper towel, butter the dish so the toast will not stick.
  4. Squeeze the bread into the cup, tearing it a bit to make it fit. Push the bread against the sides of the cup to make space for the cheese and egg.
  5. Sprinkle the grated cheese into the bread cup and add the egg.
  6. For a runny egg, bake for 15 minutes; for a half-soft, half-hard yolk, bake for 20 minutes; and for fully cooked, bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Add salt and pepper and serve.

NOTE: If you make a bunch of these ahead of time, store them wrapped in plastic wrap in your refrigerator for up to one week.

    This is easy enough to make, I should do this for myself, I made up a dozen med boiled eggs so I could have a couple everymorning, well my hubby ate them all, so much for making them ahead

    What a great and easy recipe especially for a brunch. I’ve seen bacon instead of using toast but I llike your healthier version more!

    This is a great idea, get tired of the same all the time, I think I would like to mix my egg with some diced up veggies before I pour into the toast, be almost like a baked western

    Would love to see what other recipes are lurking in that cookbook!! I really don’t think I need anymore books tho, it’s one of my addictions I have cookbooks in every cranny and nook in my I have cookbooks that are old and not even looked at and some that are holding on by a thread.
