FOR BRUNCH NESTS:

PREHEAT
oven to 375° F. Lightly butter 12 standard-size muffin cups.



FLATTEN each bread slice with your hand. Carefully insert flattened bread slices into muffin cups so they fit snuggly. It’s ok if pieces of bread stick out, it will keep the egg from running over the edge. Brush melted butter over each bread cup.



ADD 1/2 tablespoon of diced ham and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese to each bread cup. Crack one egg into each cup.



BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until egg is set (while baking, start making the cremas). Run a knife around edge of each bread cup to loosen. Serve each with about 1 tablespoon Chipotle Crema or Cilantro-Avocado Crema.




FOR CHIPOTLE CREMA:

PLACE
media crema, chiles and bouillon in blender; cover. Blend for about 30 seconds. Refrigerate any leftover Chipotle Crema in a tightly sealed container.



FOR CILANTRO-AVOCADO CREMA:

PLACE
media crema, avocado, cilantro and bouillon in blender; cover. Blend for about 30 seconds. Refrigerate any leftover Cilantro-Avocado Crema in a tightly sealed container.
