Happy Wednesday all! Recipe of the day is Sun-dried Tomatoes Pork Cups – succulent meat cups with scrambled eggs with feta cheese and sun-dried tomatoes – lovely breakfast idea or just a snack on the go!
It’s been a whole week without posting! It seems every time I try to be more organised and post regularly something gets on a way. And it’s usually something to do with the kids. In this case, it was chickenpox. At lest now it’s over though. Both of my kids had it, two weeks apart and while my older daughter was really lucky and barely had any blisters, my poor baby had it really bad. But again, I’m so glad it’s over now. Easter is coming so are my new recipes so stay tuned…
And the weather’s been amazing recently! It makes me think of some yummy Spring-inspired recipes. So lots of cooking planned ahead!
Anyhow, the recipe is here now so back to it…
This is and incredibly easy recipe made in a muffin tray. All you need is minced pork, sun-dried tomatoes and eggs and feta cheese. If you’re looking for a filling breakfast ideas this is for you. It’s cheesy, meaty and conveniently shaped in small cups ready to bite. 🙂
I had some pork mince leftovers and wanted to make some scotch eggs which I love but then I thought my kids are not keen on them so instead I made these pretty cups.
I’ve been using lots of sun-dried tomatoes lately and they go so well in my savoury recipes. Whenever I’d like to add more flavour to a meal I open my kitchen cupboard and ,especially recently, reach towards the sun-dried tomatoes. That’s why I always have a jar of these in my kitchen cupboard. 🙂
Here’s how to make the Sun-dried Tomatoes Pork Cups.
Sun-dried Tomatoes Pork Cups
- 300g pork mince
- 1 egg
- 2tbsp breadcrumbs
- 7-8 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
- 100g feta cheese, crumbled
- 1tsp cumin
- 1tsp pepper
- salt to taste
- fresh parsley, chopped
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- In a bowl, combine the pork, egg, breadcrumbs and seasoning. Add a handful of fresh parsley and mix well.
- Grease a muffin tray and shape the mixture in small balls. Arrange them on the tray and press with your fingers to make a hole(so you can fill them in with the eggs mixture).
- Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the egg mixture - in a bowl, simply mix the eggs, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes together.
- Fill the pork cups wit the mixture and place back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until ready.

Happy Sunday all! If you still have not decided what to have for your breakfast you need to check this recipe out – Sausage, Eggs, Feta Cheese and Fresh Parsley all combined in one bite in these simple Breakfast Cups!
Plus today’s weather is perfect for a stay-in-bed breakfast, lunch and even dinner! Or if you simply would like to make your loved ones happy, this is the way(at least for our family). Kids absolutely love these and even ate the ‘green stuff’ (parsley). Now I’m starting to realise that as long as it’s not on its own, spinach/parsley is ok. I mean, when making green muffins or these breakfast cups, there’s no problem eating it. If I offer it as a side, forget it. Feeding kids can be tricky but we need to find a way to feed them the right suff:-) If our family meals are left to my daughter to choose, the menu would be, chocolate, chocolate, chicken nuggets, chocolate and then chips. But on the good side, she loves fruit and veggies. And I’m sure every kid has a stage they like or dislike certain things.
Anyway, back on the recipe…
I love making these small cups/bites because, first there’s no frying involved(I use a muffin tray) and then they just look so cool and appetizing(and they’re really tasty) and of course, the whole process is very simple. Dump everything in a bowl, pour into the muffin tray and leave the rest to the oven. Easy as that! And you can do all that while having your cuppa and watching your favourite Sunday show in bed. That sounds like a Sunday I’d like but the truth is this does not happen very often:-) Life with kids is busy, heh! I’m gonna have to wait till they’re grown ups and maybe one day they’ll make this recipe for me and serve it in my bed:-) That would be super cool! But the thing is I love cooking and making my family happy so I don’t mind, I even like it. Seriously, I’ve tried staying in bed and just doing nothing, but I guess I’m so used to the busy everyday life that I could not do it. I need to be in action, constantly:-) But that’s what busy mums do, I suppose. Who said it’s not a full-time job?
Really, there’s no excuse not to make these yummy cups.
Here’s what you need for them.
- 6 eggs
- 150g Feta cheese
- 2-3 sausages, cooked(just choose the ones you like)
- a bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
- salt and pepper
- butter for greasing
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- In a bowl, combine all the ingredients.
- Grease a muffin tray with some butter.
- Pour the mixture into the muffin tray and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes or until ready.
- Make your cuppa ready, go back to bed, put your fav TV show on and Enjoy:-)
Tip: If you prefer a vegetarian option, simply skip the sausage!
