Baked eggs

My contribution to the New Year's brunch. Eggs baked in a tortilla with mushrooms, shallots, thyme, fontina, parsley.




Here's the recipe/instructions:


Basically, you cut tortillas into quarters, and use two overlapping quarters to line the greased cups of a muffin tin (points toward the center). Add a teaspoonful of filling (I sauteed mushrooms in butter with shallots and thyme). Crack an egg on top (use medium, not large eggs or they might overflow). Sprinkle over shredded cheese, fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Brush the exposed parts of tortilla with melted butter.


Here's what they look like before they go into the oven:


Bake until the eggs are cooked to your liking. I believe I baked mine at 400 for about 12-15 minutes, which cooked the whites but left the yolks a little soft. They can be eaten out of hand, or served on plate with a bigger breakfast. They taste fine even at room temperature.
