Bacon Breakfast Cups combine your favorite breakfast ingredients. Bacon, Eggs, and French Toast. Now who wouldn’t want that for breakfast?
Well, I was watching Harry Potter and checking my facebook when I got a notification. Someone had tagged me in this recipe of Bacon Breakfast Cups. I looked at all the ingredients on the list and had everything to make these. People on my facebook friends list like to tag me in bacon pics, bacon recipes, pretty much anything bacon related. If you scroll down my wall that is pretty much all you see. It’s been awhile since I’ve even posted a bacon recipe so here ya go!
To make these glorious little Breakfast Cups you cook the bacon in a skillet. I’ve been using my cast iron skillet a lot now. At first, I thought it was difficult to clean but then as I read more and more web pages and watched videos on how to clean them it became easier. You do not need to cook the bacon all the way either. Just so the bacon strips start becoming crispy. About 3-5 minutes. While the bacon is cooking you can make the french toast part. Melt some butter and maple syrup in a sauce pan. I used the ring of a jar to cut the little circles so that they fit perfectly into the muffin tin. Dip the bread into the maple and butter mixture and put those on the bottom of the muffin tin mold. This is by far my favorite part. I love getting a slice of bacon with the egg and then the sweetness of the bread on the bottom. Delicious. You aren’t done yet though. Place the bacon around the edges of the muffin tin mold and then crack an egg in the middle. The egg just sits in there perfectly and the bacon strips hold the egg in there. Bake these in a 400 degree oven until the egg yolks are done. Mine took about 12 minutes. Depending on how well you like your eggs done. Your family is going to love you after you make these!Print
- 8 slices of Bacon
