Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Cups

     Are you looking for an interesting way to serve breakfast? This is the recipe for you. It's so easy, even my husband could make it! In fact, he did. After his friend made it for his family and passed on the recipe. The original recipe (as posted below) says to crack an egg in each cup, but we scrambled them first since that is how we like our eggs. Our friend who made it said he likes his eggs runny, so he just cracked the egg in it and cooked it for less time so the eggs were a little more runny.
     Basically, this tastes about the same as a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. The presentation is really what makes it a little different.         
     Overall, I would say to just make the sandwich unless you are trying to impress guests or get your kids to eat all the ingredients. My daughter will not eat the sandwich, but ate the whole muffin because  it was a muffin. She loves muffins!

One muffin is pretty filling, so just make enough for what your family will eat.
optional: cheese
  • preheat oven to 375. 
  • Take a slice of bread, use a rolling pin to flatten it. 
  • Butter the muffin pan. 
  • Cook the bacon in a frying pan, but not too much.  It will brown more as it bakes.
  • Put the bread into the muffin tin, then the bacon, then crack an egg in it. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top for the last couple of minutes.
