I found these egg cups on a blog I read occasionally, Everyday Paleo. I decided to give them a try for Jeremy and I's Easter brunch. As per my usual, I changed the recipe by adding a few more ingredients and making it more my own. The taste was amazing. I did have trouble removing these from the muffin tin so they weren't as pretty as I'd hoped. However, if you want a fun presentation for a brunch or fancy breakfast, this is definitely a recipe to consider.
SWEET POTATO EGG CUPS
Print This Recipe
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
1/4 cup butter, melted
sea salt to taste
4 slices of bacon, diced
4 mushrooms, diced
3 green onions, sliced
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease thoroughly a muffin tin.
Mix the grated sweet potatoes with the melted butter. Using your hands, press the grated sweet potatoes into each muffin cup making sure the bottom and sides are completely covered. Press down firmly creating a potato "basket." Bake the sweet potatoes for 25-30 minutes.
While potato baskets are baking, cook the diced bacon, drain and set aside. Lightly saute the diced mushroom and green onions in olive oil.
Remove potato baskets from the oven, place a few bacon pieces and some of the mushroom mixture in the bottom of each (make sure not to overfill, just a little bit of goodies!). Top with an egg. Return to oven and bake until the egg whats are set, but yolk is still slightly runny, about 10 minutes. Garnish with additional green onions, if desired.
