Easy egg cups

In my bid to eat healthier,  I decided to add more beans in our every day meal  ( hope this is not just a phase..).  So I went grocery shopping and bought a few types of dried beans, processed them and now I have a stack of ready-beans in my freezer.  The scene is quite daunting and it motivates me to find suitable recipes to use up all the beans.  Browse through one of my favourite gardening-allotment book and I found this recipe, by the writer Celia Brooks.   This recipe calls for pea and feta cheese, but you could easily substitute the ingredients with other types of beans and cheese.   You could even use canned beans, just remember to wash and rinse them.   Green bean is packed with nutrition and fiber, too.

My version of the egg cups:

2 spring onions, chopped
200 gm peas
6 eggs, beaten
140 gm feta cheese, crumbled
4 tablespoon cream
Salt and pepper
 
Muffin tin – greased
 

This recipe is so easy.  Its just like making an omelette, baked.   Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.  Do not add too much salt as the feta cheese is already salty.  Combine the rest of the ingredients together and mix well.   Pour into the greased muffin holes.   Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes.  Serve warm.

 

If you don’t have feta cheese, the closest substitute in terms of texture is Ricotta and goats cheese.   But I guess you could just use any cheese you think might taste good with the eggs.  Not much to say about this dish, except that it is delicious and easy to prepare.  Full of  goodness.  Hope you’ll enjoy this quick meal.

This egg cup is something new to me, would be good for afternoon tea too, I particularly like the cheese ingredient in it.

Yasmin says:

Jacq and Emma, yes you should try.. but I suggest to try other cheese than Feta, for that creamier taste :)
