Nothing easier with these muffin cups. I know we usually put more thought, and care more about composition when it comes about lunch or dinner, but breakfast can look posh too. These mini egg toastmuffin cups look amazing and taste even better. You have a gooey cheesy and eggy centre, then crispy bread on the outside.  Heaven!

We all know how hectic mornings can be and most people will simply skip breakfast because they do not have enough time to have a cooked breakfast before going to work. But these egg toast muffin cups can be enjoyed on the go, no need to sit down at the table. You can throw in absolutely anything you like, bacon, chicken, any kind of veggies. Or keep them simple, and they will still be lovely.  These ingredients are enough for 3 muffins, so double up the quantities if you need more.

Bechamel/white  sauce

The Bechamel or white sauce is absolutely fantastic, and can be used in countless dishes, from lasagna, to pasta bake, gnocchi, etc. It’s basically made of milk, flour, cheese, seasoned with salt and pepper, and optionally added Dijon mustard for extra flavour. It’s ready in just a minutes, and apart from some whisking, no great effort goes into it. It’s so easy to  make it fresh all the time, no need for wasting money on a cheesy sauce.

I have used it many times, and it really is a fail-proof recipe. No wonder it’s so popular all over the world, French people really must be proud of this sauce. It works wonders with these muffin cups, making the middle all gooey and cheesy. The cheesier, the better.
