“Looks very attractive on a buffet table. You can line the cups with biscuit dough and get the egg mixture ready ahead of time then with your oven preheated pour the egg mixture into the dough lined cups pop into the oven and in 1/2 hour lovely hot Mexi cups are ready. I like to use a jalapeño stuffed Olive on top and hot sauce in the eggs”
