1 tsp ground sage

½ tsp ground thyme

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

1 tsp brown sugar

¾ cup freshly minced onion and green pepper*

¾ shredded cheddar cheese*

6 eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 400°. In large bowl, combine ground pork, sage, thyme, paprika, cumin, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Mix thoroughly and put equal amounts into 12 muffin cups. Mold mixture along bottom and up sides to form cups.

Add one tablespoon onion/pepper mix and one tablespoon cheese to each cup. Fill with egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes until eggs are set and slightly browned on top.

*Feel free to use whatever kind of vegetables and cheese that you prefer or have on hand.

Hack: To prevent sticking, immediately run a knife around the edge of the cups after removing from oven and gently loosen sides and bottom from cup. Allow to set for 5 minutes and remove from cup.

Hack #2: Eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. To freeze egg cups, place on cookie sheet and put in freezer until firm. Seal in freezer bag or container and store in freezer. To reheat, thaw in refrigerator overnight and microwave at 20 second intervals just until heated through.

Hack #3: Some egg cup recipes suggest that you just crack an egg over the top. Yolks and whites require different reheating times, resulting in (either) dried out whites or unheated yolks. Using beaten eggs will alleviate this problem.

Thank you for sharing this here m this is exactly better for bachelor’s like us who would want to do something quite well and get the perfect fishing right. This is superb to gain access too.

    1. Thank you for your comments, Abel.  Being single myself, I also like to be able to make something nice for a meal without a lot of effort and have some leftover for the rest of the week.  My good friend Penny, who recommended this recipe to me, is also single.  I guess great minds think alike!!!
