Bacon, Egg & Cheese Toast Cups
Months ago our friend, Amy, had us over for breakfast and proudly showed us a picture she’d torn out of a magazine featuring bacon and egg toast cups. She thought the kids would get a kick out of eating them.
Amy had already done all prep work of rolling out the bread, tucking them into muffin tins and preheating the oven. When we arrived she popped them right in to cook. Trouble is that Amy and I had quite a bit of catching up to do while our kids were running around like maniacs and our husbands didn’t exactly pay attention to what was going on in the kitchen. The result was some seriously overcooked bacon and egg toast cups. They got thrown in the trash and we feasted on bagels instead. My kid and I finally just got around to recreating them. So glad we did. Now for the recipe…
Bacon, Egg & Cheese Toast Cup Recipe
Adapted from this Martha recipe.
Prep Time: 5 mins Cooking Time:
6 slices wheat bread
6 slices bacon (we used turkey bacon)
4 eggs + 1 tablespoon milk, lightly beaten together
1/4 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a rolling pin to flatten bread. (We removed the crusts, you don’t have to.) Butter one side of the bread and then place buttered side down into a muffin cup. You’ll need to overlap the bread a bit to fit it all the way into the cup. Press against the sides to form a hole in the center. Repeat this for all 6 slices of bread and then lightly spray the insides with olive oil cooking spray. Cook bacon on a paper towel in the microwave for 2 or 3 minutes. The bacon will not be crispy – it will just be par-cooked. Place one par-cooked bacon slice in each bread cup and then pour some egg into each cup dividing evenly among all bread cups. Sprinkle the tops with cheese and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until set. Use a butter knife to loosen bread cups. Serve warm.
Ooooo, a healthier twist on the biscuit, egg, and cheese recipe I got from you! Thanks!
I can't wait to try this. breakfast for dinner tonight!
OMGoodness! Thanks so much for all your post. My little man likes to help cook too and he is a picky eater but it seems when he gets to help he is more willing to try it. I have pasted on your blog to all my friends. You are amazing. THanks again.
this sounds awesome, and so easy I can have the kids help! LOVE that!
This is genius. My kids are too old to want to do anything with me, so I am just going to cook this with my inner-child and have it for breakfast.
John – My kid doesn't like runny yokes, but if you are making it for yourself I highly recommend not scrambling up the egg. Crack an egg into the bread cup on top of the bacon) and then sprinkle cheese on it and bake until the whites are just set.
Just made it with sausage, because we all know everything is better with sausage. Delicious!
What a fantastic idea! I can't wait to try this with my son.
hey lady. made these yesterday with leftover creamed spinach from turkey day. yum!
The back ground on the website makes the text incredibly hard to see. I’ll be looking forward to trying this at home however.
My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for you? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome blog!
