Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups!
p.s. I have a blog post in progress about all the benefits of eating breakfast, and tons of recipes included!
-3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted.
-8 slices whole wheat sandwhich bread. (any brand you like)
- 6 slices of bacon (for a healthier option I prefer turkey bacon)
- 6 large eggs
- salt & grounded pepper
*optional mix-ins* Sausage, turkey bacon, peppers, & even veggies! like spinach, or whatever your preference is :)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups, & with a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly. With a 4 1/4 inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup. Its okay if they are overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to the edge of the cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps, then brush bread with any leftover butter.
2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat setting until almost crisp. (about 4 minutes, flipping once) they'll continue to cook in the oven. Lay one bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, about 20-25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toast. Serve right away! (definitely better warm!)
Enjoy everyone, hope you love it!
