Breakfast: Cooking With Paper Coffee Cups

Introduction: Breakfast: Cooking With Paper Coffee Cups

Now the obvious thing to use paper Coffee cups for in the morning would be coffee, however having never aquired the taste, we needed to be more inventive.

Again, we are using Extra Large Tim Hortons coffee cups, a franchise in memory of a retired hockey player who died crashing his Pantera into a bridge on the 401 at 120 miles per hour.

Worship at the altar.

In `Tim speak`, this was an Xtra Large black, 2 sugar.

Step 1:

We are going to cook eggs, scrambled eggs, in this cup so first we smear the inside with butter, or in this case, Becel.

Using a paper towel, we liberally smear the bottom and sides of the cup up to just over halfway. This keeps the eggs from sticking.

Step 2:

In the first picture, you can barely make out the two eggs and a touch of milk in the cup.

The second picture shows them stirred with a fork, as I was out of coffee stirrers.

Step 3:

Now this is were saving the top comes in, as it keeps the heat, (and any exploding egg) inside the cup.

Step 4:

And so we place the cup in the `Let`s Blow It Up Microwave`and heat it for just over two minutes.

Step 5:

While waiting for the eggs to cook, we pour our cereal into another paper Coffee Cup.

Step 6:

Adding milk and a spoon, makes this ready to go.

Step 7:

Now for our apple juice, however we are out of paper Coffee cups and have to rely on our recyled jam jars.

Step 8:

And our eggs are ready.

Another triumph in the useful Paper Coffee Cup wars !!!

(damn, we are out of ketchup, or catsup to some of you)

    I want to walk around with a Tim Hortons coffee cup just because we don't have any where I live. Canadians hoarding the Hortons..

    I'd like to see more recipes (brownies, soup?) but so far this is the only practical application I've seen and I love it. Add to it and I hope it wins!

    Mix approximately equal amounts of cake mix and water in a cup, zap for 30-60 seconds, and you have cake.  Brownie mix done this way is really hit or miss, for some reason.  Some brands work, others don't.
