Bacon Egg Muffin Cups

This is the kind of breakfast my Wild Boar loves...crispy bacon with the egg yolk 3/4 cooked. When I saw this recipe from Daily Dish blog, I knew I had to try the recipe and true enough, it  was so good that I can't find a word to describe it :)  It is indeed a nice way to present the bacon and egg for breakfast....a wholesome meal indeed.  It is truly a  fun and easy breakfast for the family.  Bake an egg in a bacon laced muffin cup?  Gosh ,it was fun for me and such a wonderful meal to start the day for us.  You may want to try making these delicious bacon egg muffin cups for your family  and I am sure they will love it.

the aroma of baked bacon wafting out from the oven was so good
that I was drooling all the time waiting for the eggs to be cooked

look at the texture of the eggs...you can still see the egg yolk wobbles

we were found guilty of tucking in two of these heavenly delights each !!!

love the egg yolk and the crispy and crunchy aromatic bacon

Bacon Egg Muffin Cups - adapted from Daily Dish Recipes


 6 slices of bread

·      12 eggs
·      12 slices of bacon
·      shredded cheese
       * I added in some lettuce - wash, clean and dry


1.   Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

2.   Heat a skillet on medium-high heat, cook the bacon and only allow it to cook for about 4-5 minutes. You are looking for flexible but not raw. While the bacon is cooking, cut two circles out of each slice of bread. I used a circle cookie cutter to make it easier.

4.   Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Next, lay a circle of bread into the bottom of each muffin cup. Wrap the bacon around the edge of each muffin cup. Lay a layer of lettuce and  sprinkle cheese on top of the lettuce.

5.   Now carefully, crack an egg into each cup or you can crack the egg carefully into a bowl first and then sliding it into the muffin cup. 

6.  Bake them for 10-15 minutes or until the whites have set and the yolk is cooked to your liking (less for a runny yolk, more for a cooked yolk)

7.   I serve these heavenly delights with bread and baked beans.

                                                                     Enjoy !
