Serve Your Bacon and Eggs in Toast Cups

Easy Breakfast Recipes with Eggs – I absolutely love making breakfast. Of all the meals, breakfast is the most fun. I guess that’s because I normally only make it on the weekend and the whole family is there.

During the week, everyone grabs their own breakfast that varies from cooked cereal with sliced avocado and hot sauce—definitely not my breakfast—to peanut butter and jelly on toast, my specialty, sometimes stretching to toaster waffles with peanut butter and maple syrup.

Even though it’s our family’s breakfast, most of the time it’s actually brunch, so I often serve omelets stuffed with meat, veggies, and cheese.

However, when I want a really special breakfast, it’s appearance plays just as much of a role in selecting it as the ingredients I use.

While family-style meals are great, individual servings seem to make the meal more upscale and special. I’m not talking about serving an egg with toast on a plate either. I want something special that really looks like it took more time and effort than it actually did.

It not only makes your family feel more special, it brings super kudos to the cook—me—and I’m always willing to accept any praise, whether well deserved or not.

The recipe combines all the favorites of breakfast, bacon, eggs, and toast but the presentation is so unique and elegant it will seem more like a gourmet meal.

Just as with any elegant recipe, you have to cut the crust off the bread and add one extra step, roll it flat with a rolling pin.

From that point on, it’s almost business as usual, only simpler. You grease the cups of a muffin tin and line them with the bread, then top those with bacon that’s almost crisp.

Just crack the egg into the center of this and bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven.

Breakfast Bacon and Eggs in Toast Cups

Ingredients

40 minutes
6
324.04 kcal
  1. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  2. 6 slices fresh white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
  3. 6 slices bacon
  4. 6 large eggs
  5. pinch of coarse salt and ground pepper to taste

Instructions

Prep
15 minutes
Cook
25 minutes
Ready in
40 minutes
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups.
  2. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds.
  3. Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
  4. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.)
  5. Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake until egg whites are just set, 20 to 25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.

Notes

Using stale bread doesn't work on this recipe so make sure to use fresh bread because its easier to flatten and mold it in the muffin tray.

  1. I actually made these bread cups before and they were always a hit. I just used the pre-cooked bacon so the only thing to clean up is the muffin tin.

  2. I wasn’t sure what to do with the extra bread crusts after cutting so I made the cinnamon sugar bread crust treats.. Really, really good. I appreciate the idea.
