Bacon ~ Egg ~ Toast Cups

Bacon ~ Egg ~ Toast Cups
Preparation time: 10mins Cooking time: 20-25 mins Easy - for beginners Serves: 3-6



  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 8 slices sandwich bread
  • 6 slices bacon (cut in half and criss-cross to make letter X)
  • 6 large eggs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. 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.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay bacon slices in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, 20 to 25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note Standard muffin pans come in 6- or 12-cup size; if baking 6 items in a 12-cup pan, leave empty space in between. Nonstick pans are nice but not essential. Beware of very thin pans, which often lead to burning. Place pans on a baking sheet to make them easier to get in and out of the oven.
