Muffin Tin Croque Madames
Ingredients2 tablespoons butter, melted
6 slices of white bread, thinly sliced
6 two-inch cubes ham or bacon, (optional)
6 two-inch cubes mozzarella
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
6 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon parmesan cheese
Preparation1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Brush each cup of a muffin tin liberally with butter.
2. Flatten out with bread with a rolling pin, and then press each piece into the corners of the muffin cups, so the bread reaches over the sides.
3. Place a two-inch cube of (ham and) mozzarella into each basket. Then sprinkle paprika, cayenne pepper and nutmeg onto the cheese.
4. Carefully place an egg in each basket. (Sometimes larger eggs have trouble fitting, but letting out a little of the white first will help.)
5. Sprinkle parmesan cheese onto each, then bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the whites and yolks are set. Pop them out carefully and enjoy!
