Easy, delicious and perfect for any breakfast! Bacon and Egg Muffins Cups are a sure family favorite!

Ingredients

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 12 eggs
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • shredded cheese

Instructions

  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.
  3. Now take that extra bread and either save it for [french toast casserole|http://www.dailydishrecipes.com/overnight-french-toast-casserole-recipe/] or go tear it apart and feed it to the birds {what we did}.
  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. (I did this part backwards – we did the cheese before the bacon – it made absolutely no difference) Sprinkle cheese on top of the bread slices.
  5. Now carefully, crack an egg into each cup. Megan suggested cracking the egg carefully into a bowl first and then sliding it into the muffin cup. I just did it right into the pan.
  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. Serve with pancakes and fresh fruit – well, we did. And by the way, you cannot eat just one. I don’t care what anyone says, you can’t. It’s impossible.
