Kick off Mother's Day in style with this delicious breakfast in bed dish – crisp toast cups filled with Parma ham and perfectly cooked eggs. It's super easy to make and is sure to impress, you can even get the kids involved!

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Ask your little helper to grease 8 holes of a muffin tin with butter. 
  2. Push one slice of bread into each greased hole, moulding it to fit with your fingers (kids will love helping with this part!) – all four corners of the bread should be sticking up. Bake for 5 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove and leave to cool a little.
  3. Get the kids to put one slice of ham inside each cup, smoothing it out to make a lining for the toast. Crack an egg into each one and season well – best if you do this bit. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until the whites are cooked but the yolk is still soft*. Remove from the oven and ask the kids to scatter over the chives. Serve immediately.
