I don't usually cook. Or maybe more accurately, I can't cook. I always tell people that I'm so inept at cooking that whenever I try I either burn the food, burn the pan or burn myself. I'm not exaggerating.
I think it's also not cooking per se - I'm just not enamoured with the idea of making savory food. Sugar all the way please! The only times I would deign to make something outside of desserts is when the recipe in question is quite interesting and fun to create. Like these toast cups.
The fact that they're so simple to make is another huge draw. Just butter the bread, snip it up into four triangles, arrange or more realistically, smush, the bread into buttered ramekins, put a bit of cheese on top, crack an egg, put more cheese, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake. It's so easily done that I feel almost foolish for typing out a recipe for these but here you go!
P.S. I have instagram so go check it out!
