I like this recipe. It's so simple. I usually make this with bread on the bottom but this way it cuts calories. Only thing I would change is baking them directly in the muffin pan. I would use some decorative cupcake liners. It would make for easier retrieval, easier clean up and the decorative cups will be festive for whatever occasion you decide to make these Egg Cups. Like for an Easter Brunch you can use cupcake cups with an Easter theme.
