Editor’s Note: Since the chilly weather set in the last couple of days I have been in serious comfort-food craving mode.
Whipping out the homemade pastas, soups and snagging warm loaves of fresh bread from the bakery keeps us all feeling cozy and centered as we move away from the sunshine and into Fall.
Bacon ranks right up there in my top 10 comfort foods, right next to eggs. So, it’s no surprise that a household favourite – Bacon & Egg Cups – popped up on my radar.
I ran this recipe a while back. But, it’s so crazy yummy – and everyone is so chilly as we debate turning the heat in the house on for the first time in the season – I thought a hearty, warm breakfast was in order.
Hope you enjoy!
Great breakfasts are about as important as the good times that come with them (I was up at 5:30 a.m. this morning making sure breakfast was baking) and I cannot ring in another chilly Fall day without a
Ken and I discovered this absolutely delicious, piece-of-cake-to-make breakfast a few years ago when my Uncle Larry whipped it out while we were in Niagara Falls for my cousin’s wedding.
We nearly fell on our heads from loving them so much.
And now I must share.
*BACON & EGG CUPS*
- 6 eggs (for 12 egg cups)
- 1/2 C milk
- 16 or so strips of bacon
- Your favourite cheese
- A 12-Cup muffin tin
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees .
2. Take the bacon, split the pieces apart and lightly fry in a frying pan just until the grease starts to show up. Take out of the pan and cool for a minute or two. Then, wrap the strips around the muffin tin cup and use the extra bacon as bottoms to your little meat cups.
3. Combine the eggs and milk (with your preferred spices) to make a bit of a scramble.
4. Fill each muffin tin with the egg mixture and top with cheese
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the eggs firm up on top.
Your family will be wowed with your culinary acumen, or at least love you for not making them eat cereal on these early chilly mornings:).
Enjoy your day!
