  1. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; brush with butter. Top with a another sheet of phyllo; brush with butter. Cut into six 4-1/2-in. squares. (Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap to avoid drying out.) Repeat with remaining phyllo and butter.
  2. Stack three squares of layered phyllo in each of four greased muffin cups, rotating squares so corners do not overlap. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cheese into each cup. Top with one egg. Sprinkle with green onion, salt an pepper. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until eggs are completely set and pastry is golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the salsa ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until onion is tender. Serve with egg cups.

These were wonderful. Since I'm low carbing, I used low carb tortillas instead of phyllo dough, and tried both ham and sausage on top. I make 6 at a time, then just warm them for a quick break...

I made these on a Trip to the Mountains with my In-Laws and these were the Star !! I really was not sure how they would turn out but the were beautiful and delicious. It seemed like a lot of wor...
