SunShine Egg and Bacon Cups

Description

Egg and Bacon Cups are an easy grab-and-go, all-in-one healthy breakfast option that will keep you satisfied until lunch.


Ingredients

Scale

6 slices whole-wheat bread
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
6 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cooked bacon slices, halved

Extras (and really, one could come up with endless variations):

• Sprinkle grated cheese between the egg and the bacon.

• Top each egg cup with freshly cut chives.

• Add finely chopped tomatoes on top of the bacon for added flavor and nutrition.


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Prepare jumbo sized muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Trim crusts off bread and flatten each slice with your fingers. Lightly brush tops with melted butter and cut each slice in half diagonally.

3. Place 2 bread halves in each of 6 muffin cups, making sure to cover bottom entirely and allowing bread corners to extend above rims. Place 1 slice of bacon in each cup. Crack an egg into each cup. Be sure to pierce the egg yolk with a fork. Top each with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

4. Bake at 375° for 20 – 25 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Notes

(I use turkey bacon because it is fully cooked. Canadian Bacon, cut in half would also be an excellent choice! If you use another type, be sure to cook it before placing it into the muffin tins).
