Easy Bacon and Egg Cups

This weekend I went to a brunch at my co-resident’s house. I was so excited to spend time with everyone outside of work, but also a little nervous to see how brunch would go with the “gluten-free me.”  I decided that if all else failed..I could have bacon and eggs, a classic breakfast that most people would enjoy. What I didn’t realize was that baking them into perfectly portioned “muffins” was something no one could resist!

 These bacon and egg cups are super easy and other than some simple seasoning, require only 2 ingredients and a muffin tin, it doesn’t get better than that. Plus..doesn’t bacon make just about everything better anyway? In my book it does!

Instructions

  3. 2. Coat muffin pan thoroughly with PAM or cooking spray
  4. 3. Cut 1" off the end of each bacon strip and place it on the base of each muffin holder, then wrap the larger strip of bacon around the inside of each muffin holder
  5. 4. Crack an egg into each muffin holder and top with salt/pepper and a dash of herb seasoning

  1. Egg yolk will appear runny on the top but is more done on the inside of the cup so don't over cook. 20 mins should be perfect.

 I only had a few minutes to snap photos before I could feel the crowd closing in on me…everyone wanted a bacon and egg cups ASAP, and I don’t blame them, they were amazing. I even add a little Sriracha to mine, for an little spice. 

I will definitely be making this recipe again…it’s too easy..and delicious not too. Brunch anyone??
