Baked Bread Cups

This evening I prepared some baked bread cups for my bento lunch tomorrow. The bread cups are very quick to prepare and are a tasty alternative to quiche.

For each bread cup you will need:

1 to 1 1/2 slices bread
1 egg
and what ever filling you’dlike
salt and pepper
grated cheese
butter or margarine

(I used shallow baking cups that I bought in poundland. You can make these in a bun tin or a muffin pan.)

Cut the crust off the slice of bread.
Roll each slice of bread with a rolling pin until very thin.
Spread each side with butter or margarine.
Press into cup as you would with pastry.
Add your filling and cover with seasoned, beaten egg.

Place on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven, 180 degrees c for 10 to 15 minutes.
Ensure that egg is thoroughly cooked right through to the centre.

When cooled, you can place these in the fridge for lunches or you can eat them hot :)
