Bacon, Egg & Toast Cups

We made these yummy guys for breakfast the other day. Found the recipe here via Pamplemousse1983. Super easy and super cute. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups. Flatten bread slices slightly and remove the crusts. Cut each slice in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
  2. In a large skillet (or microwave), cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay 1 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 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.
  • Personal Note: Next time I'm going to try puff pastry instead of bread for more of a light, fluffy crisp.
