Breakfast in One
6 slices bread
6 teaspoons butter
1 cup grated Gruyère or Emmental cheese
1 cup cooked chopped ham or crumbled bacon
Salt and pepper
6 tsp whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Cut the crusts from 6 slices of bread. Roll with a rolling pin. Butter both sides and press each slice into a 6-cup muffin pan (a Texas muffin pan works best).
Bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce the oven to 350F. Put the grated cheeses in the bottoms of toast cups (saving some for topping). Sprinkle ham or bacon over the cheese.
Break an egg carefully into each cup, add salt and pepper, a dot of butter, and about 1 teaspoon of cream to each, then top with more grated cheese.
Bake 18 – 20 minutes.
