  prep time: cook time: total time: 30 MIN 

INGREDIENTS


12 eggs
12 slices bacon
12 pieces bread (I like to use whole wheat)
butter, for greasing
salt and pepper, to taste


INSTRUCTIONS


1. Preheat your oven to 375°.  Grease your muffin tin with the butter.  (To do this, I cut off a couple of tablespoons of butter from the stick, hold it with a paper towel, and rub it all around the inside of the cups.)

2. Use a rolling pin to flatten your slices of bread, then cut them into large rounds.  (I used a circular cookie cutter to do this.)  Put one slice of bread into each muffin cup and press it around the edges of the tin so it makes a little cup.

3. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until almost crispy, but still pliable.  Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.  When cool enough to handle, place one slice of bacon into each cup.

4. Gently crack an egg into each cup and season with salt and pepper.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or just until the eggs whites are set.  Use a plastic knife to loosen the cups from the pan and serve immediately.


NOTES


This recipe uses a 12-cup muffin tin.  If you are using a smaller tin, scale ingredients accordingly.

Make sure your bread slices come at least to the top of the cups.  A little taller than the cups is best to make sure the eggs don't spill out.
