Savory Egg Bites

The first time I tried these cups my friend Rachel made them for our friend Amanda's baby shower. These cups were fabulous! So yummy and flavorful with every bite. I think I might have consumed 3-4! Well recently I had a playgroup get together at my house and I changed up the original recipe a bit to use the ingredients I already had at home. They were a hit! All the kids loved them and so did the mommies.

Last weekend at a baby shower for our friend, Alanna, Rachel made her version of these cups for everyone. So good. And since I didn't take a picture of them when I made my version I just snapped a photo of hers. I hope no one minds.

Egg Cups

* 2 chicken sausage links (I used sun dried tomato)
* 10 eggs, beaten
* 1 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese
* 1 cup Gouda cheese, shredded
* 1 onion, diced and sauteed
* 1 zucchini, diced and sauteed w/ onion

* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt


Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cottage cheese, cheese, veggies and cooled meat. Cover and refrigerate overnight

The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove cheese mixture from refrigerator; stir in flour, butter, baking powder and salt. Spoon batter into 24 lightly greased muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until puffs are slightly golden on top.

Ok I admit it! I ate more than my fair share of the egg cups. They are like crack. New name: Egg crack cups. Great seeing you and E at the baby shower!

So....I finally made these. I took them to our family's potluck Christmas Eve. They were delicious!

I made a few changes....

We have family that doesn't like onions, so I used broccoli instead. More veggies hidden from the younger kids. :)

I forgot to make some of it the night before, so they only 'marinated' for 2 hours in the fridge. Is there a reason I should 'marinate' overnight, or is it just a make-ahead step to make the morning rush not so bad?
