Fancy Eggs and Toast Cups

This is one of the simplest, most impressive breakfasts ever. It’s a recipe kids can surely put together (with a little help from an adult) to make Mom’s breakfast extra special on a certain Sunday in May (hint, hint).


  • 2 tsp butter

  • 4 slices soft sandwich bread, crusts removed

  • 4 tsp herbed Boursin, or soft goat cheese

  • 4 large eggs

  • salt, to taste

  • black pepper, to taste

  • 4 sliced smoked salmon

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 cup baby salad greens


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Use butter to grease 4 wells of a muffin tin. Place trimmed bread slices into each prepared well.

  • Flatten the bread to hold the shape of the muffin cup (otherwise the egg won’t fit). Crumble 1 tsp of herbed Boursin or soft goat cheese into the bottom of each bread cup. Crack an egg into each cup and sprinkle with tiny pinches of salt and pepper.

  • Bake for 18 min or until egg white is set (it should be opaque and only slightly jiggly when you shake the pan). Remove from oven and use a butter knife to remove toast cups from muffin tin. Place on serving plates. Top each with a folded piece of smoked salmon. Sprinkle lemon juice over baby salad greens and use to garnish each cup.

Not a fan of smoked salmon? No problem. Top egg cups with slices of salty prosciutto or a little shaved ham for a tasty switch.
