  • 6 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed
  • 3 slices nitrate-free deli turkey or vegan turkey substitute, sliced in half, optional*

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 6 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray or lightly grease with olive oil. Lightly press each slice of bread into a round. Fold over and press edges of bread to fit in the muffin cup, if necessary.
  • Brush each slice of bread with olive oil. The back of a spoon can be used if you do not have a pastry or basting brush. Sprinkle the bottom of each cup with cheddar cheese, if using. Add a layer of turkey, folded over to fit if using.
  • Crack an egg into each bread round. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the whites of the eggs are set.
