For my Brunch at the Barn, I wanted an egg dish that would transport well. My friend Eric taught me this egg cup method years ago. I used to make them all the time but I haven’t hosted a brunch in several years. They’re just as delicious and easy to make as I remember and they traveled much better than, say, poached eggs would.

They egg cups have the most fabulous texture – almost like a lazy person’s soufflé! They puff up delightfully in the oven and they will fall slightly as they cool and that’s just fine. They are great served room temperature, making them perfect for entertaining if you love hosting brunch like me!
