Ingredients

6 slices from Panera Bread White Whole Grain Loaf, crust removed

¼ cup melted butter

6 large eggs

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/3 cup finely chopped grape tomatoes

1/3 cup finely chopped red onion, optional

½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, optional

Tip

*If you prefer, you can scramble the eggs then pour them into the toast cups.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat 6 jumbo muffin cups with cooking spray. Brush both sides of trimmed bread slices with melted butter. Press 1 bread slice into each muffin cup, molding it to the shape of the cup. The bread corners will rise out of the edges of the cup. Bake until lightly toasted, about 15 minutes.

Break 1 egg into each toast-lined cup and season with salt and pepper. Add chopped tomatoes and onion, if using, dividing equally among muffin cups. Top with cheese and bake until cheese melts and eggs are set, 15 to 20 minutes. Scatter on parsley, if using.
