I learned of this recipe from Reddit, and since Reddit is often about bacon, and we have a strict bacon ration in this household (I know many of you think it’s lame, but bacon is way too addictive for us!), I don’t get much of my ‘inspirations’ from Reddit. However, every now and then, something of a pure genius just pops up, and you can’t hide that.
Well, bacon cups was one of those times. It seems like something so stupidly simple – to add all your breakfast foods together in a one-pan mega-show. This is exactly what it is. There’s bacon (duh!), toast and eggs – all in a two-bite extravaganza. Now, are you excited?
- 2 eggs
- 1 slice of toast
- 2 slices bacon
- salt and pepper to taste
Coil the bacon and line them on the sides of a muffin pan. I cut mine in halves, then lined both halves in the muffin pan.
Cut the toast to fit the bottom of the muffin pan. Crack an egg on top of the toast. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake this in the oven at 400F for about 10 minutes (if you’re like me and like your eggs wet), or 15 to 17 minutes if you like it semi-set (like in the picture above).
