  • bacon
  • ham
  • spinach
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • berries
  • broccoli

how to make egg cups


  1. Thank you so much for including my Black Forrest Egg Ham and Cheese Cups! All of the egg cups look delicious. Can't wait to try them all.

  2. I've tried making egg cups before- I put about half to 1/3 of the mixture into the pan and when I bake them they puff up really tall above the pan on the edges but the middle stays sunken. What am I doing wrong?
