Mini Egg Cups

I threw out some ideas for brunch this Sunday but none of them excited my fiancé’s attention.

I always love making coffee cake, cinnamon rolls… something sweet with cinnamon please! Like these cinnamon biscuit rolls or these cinnamon and sugar donut holes.

My fiancé is much more of a savory guy. So, per his request, I made these mini egg cups.

Mini Egg Cups
I can't remember where I first saw these, but they have been around the blogosphere for a while now. They are super easy to make and super yummy.

Here is how to make these. First grease a mini muffin tin. I lined the muffin tin with salami. This was the first time I used salami and it really added a nice touch, although they are just as yummy without.

Grease mini muffin tin and line with salami. Scramble eggs, minced garlic and milk. Grate cheddar cheese.
Fill the salami cups with scrambled eggs, then top them off with cheese.

Fill the salmi cups with egg mixture and top with cheese.
Preheat the oven for 425 degrees fahrenheit. Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until done.

Bake at 425 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
I served mine with tater tots and whole wheat toast. I think some sliced fruit would have made this the perfect brunch.

Serve and enjoy!
