|Eggs In Collard Green Cups|
I made this stuffed collard green recipe for work (Yes, this is the other recipe I need to put up) and I had a few leftover leaves. I did not want to toss it out so I kept it. I work up on Sunday morning and I thought to myself, "What if I draped the leaves in the cupcake pan and fill it with egg, then bake it?" So that is what I did. I loved loved loved it when it was done. It was like a perfectly boiled egg where the white is just soft and the yolk is silk.
