We are just loving our spring weather.  We have lots of sunshiny days along with some that they call "May Grey" but either way the days are nice, the flowers are in bloom, and everything seems just fine!

When we have a nice sunny morning on the weekend we tend to gravitate toward our patio.  Mornings are nice and cool, and quiet which makes the perfect atmosphere for sitting down with a nice cup of coffee or tea and enjoying some conversation before the days activities start.

Today we are having breakfast on the patio.  A nice special breakfast, something that is quick and easy to make.  So Herbed Scrambled Eggs are in order and I've placed them in Toast Cups.  Toast cups are simply bread that you place in muffin tins to form "cups" and toast them in the oven.  They are so cute when they come out!  The perfect little vehicle to hold your scrambled eggs.

HERBED SCRAMBLED EGGS IN TOAST CUPS

So get out your muffin tin and make these cute little toast cups.  You can even make them a day ahead and just reheat them.  And what's easier than scrambled eggs.  These have some fresh herbs mixed in along with some cheese to jazz them up a bit.  Add some bacon or sausage and your meal is complete.

Toast Cups

French bread slices
Butter

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Butter on side of the French bread.

Press bread, butter side down, into the cups of a regular sized muffin tin. The crust will be sticking out to help form the cup.

Bake cups in oven for 20 minutes. (Watch so they do not brown too much) They should be slightly browned and crispy.  Remove cups from muffin pan. Set aside. 





Herbed Scrambled Eggs

serves 2 

4 large eggs
1/4 cup 2% milk
salt and pepper
3 Tbls cheese, grated ( I used Swiss cheese)
1 tsp of thyme, chopped
1 tsp of chives, chopped
2 Tbls no-salt butter

Heat butter in a skillet over medium low heat.

In a bowl break eggs and add the milk.  Whisk together until fluffy.  Add a pinch of salt and pepper.  Whisk to combine.

Add eggs and allow to set up on the bottom slightly.  Push edges toward the center and tilt skillet to allow liquid to move to the edges.  Continue cooking and pushing edges to the middle until the eggs are soft and liquid is cooked.  Add herbs and cheese and allow to melt.  Stir to combine and then serve in toast cups if desired.
