Now we will make the cup to hold our egg filling. Cut the bun horizontally into half. Keep the upper half aside. Now take a fork, scrape the bread of the lower half from the middle. Remove the bread crumbs.

Apply butter using a brush. Your cups are ready now. Repeat the same process with as many cups as you want to make.

Filling & heating

Fill the cups with egg mixture. Please keep them in OTG or microwave & heat for a minute. Doing this will make the buns crispy. Be careful while heating. Make sure the buns don’t burn.


Layer mayonnaise on top of the scrambled egg cup. You can replace mayonnaise with tomato sauce or even white sauce. Garnish with something that you prefer eating the most. However, you can skip the garnishing part.
