Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups

Serves 2-4


4 slices of bacon
4 slices of bread
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I prefer cheddar)
4 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400° F. Grease 4 wells of a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In the microwave, cook bacon about 3 minutes between 2 sheets paper towels on plate, until partially cooked but not completely crispy. Cut out rounds of bread with a round cookie cutter or drinking glass. Press the bread rounds into the greased muffin wells. Curl a piece of bacon around each piece of bread, positioning it between the bread and the muffin tin to help keep it in position. Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese on top of each piece of bread. One at a time, crack an egg, removing about half of the white, and dropping the remaining white and yolk over each piece of bread, being careful not to break the yolks.

Bake until eggs are cooked through to your liking (about 10-12 minutes) and bacon is crispy. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin well and pop the egg cups out. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
Bon Appétit !
