Baked Eggs and Cheese in Toast Cups
reprinted with permission from Snack Girl To The Rescue!
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
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Soften the butter in the microwave (if using a ramekin, just put in the dish). Using a paper towel, butter the dish so that the toast will not stick.
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.
Sprinkle the grated cheese into the bread cup and add the egg. 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.
Add salt and pepper and serve.
If you make a bunch of these ahead of time, store them wrapped in plastic wrap in your refrigerator for one week.
