Smoky Egg Cups

March 15, 2011

Author Notes: This is an endlessly adaptable recipe you can make with different herbs, cheeses, etc., and is so easy to make on any morning. I happened to have Gryuere cheese on hand, and I love the smoky flavor of ham and cheese. The yogurt gives it heft and tang. You could use some cream cheese mixed with a little milk if you don't have yogurt, or even some sour cream. Don't be shy with the smoked paprika.Burnt Offerings
