5 Traditional Egg Cup Recipes
Egg cups make the perfect vessel for serving breakfast, brunch, or even a quick snack. Here are five traditional egg cup recipes that you should try:
Eggs Benedict is a classic brunch dish that features a perfectly poached egg on top of a toasted English muffin and Canadian bacon. The dish is finished off with a generous drizzle of Hollandaise sauce. To make this dish in an egg cup, simply layer the English muffin, bacon, and egg in the cup and top with Hollandaise sauce.
Deviled eggs are a popular appetizer that are easy to make and always a hit at parties. To make them in an egg cup, simply cut a boiled egg in half and remove the yolk.
