Bacon & Eggs Breakfast Cups from How To: Simplify

Ingredients (per muffin cup)

  • 1 slice of bread
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

1. Using a cookie cutter, cut circles out of each piece of bread. Grease a muffin tin and press circles of bread in the muffin cups. Place in the oven and bake at 375 for 5 minutes or until bread is slightly toasted. Remove from the oven.

2. Cook bacon in a skillet until halfway cooked -- about 3-4 minutes. Places 2 slices of bacon on top of the pieces of bread so that they wrap around the sides to form a cup (as seen above). The bacon should cover the bread and the sides of each cup.

3. Crack an egg into each muffin cup.

4. Bake in oven at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until the eggs are set.

5. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over each egg and continue to bake until cheese is melted.

6. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
