What's Cooking - Pinterest Bacon Egg Cups

Awhile back I had pinned a recipe for bacon egg cups thinking it would be the perfect little thing to put together if we were to have some people over the house for breakfast. However, since we live pretty much away from everyone we know, the opportunity to make said bacon cups didn't occur until last weekend when my parents and sister came into town for a visit.

My sister is obsessed with B&B's. I mean, OBSESSED with them. She stays at them all the time whenever she goes up to Maine, so whenever she comes to visit, it's become something of a joke that I try to make her stay akin to staying in one. The first night she was here, I made my special home fries planning on waking up at the crack of dawn to make the bacon egg cups and have this amazing little breakfast spread all out for her when she awoke. I was going to be the best little host ever, she would be amazed by the breakfast, and they all would marvel about the little meal I had just put together.  That. did. not. happen. I slept in the next morning, BUT the next day I was determined to wake up early and wow them with my breakfast skills.  So without further adieu, I bring you- bacon egg cups!

To start- and I can't stress this enough- this is probably one of the easiest recipes I have ever done that tasted absolutely amazing, and looked like so much more work went into it.

Things you need:

Milk ( not included in the recipe, but I added it to the eggs)
Cheese (I had to use Parmesan cheese)
Muffin Tin

All the ingredients
 Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, whisk together the eggs and milk. Then add in the Parmesan cheese or whatever cheese you are using for the recipe, if you are using any at all. Add the salt and pepper and whatever spices you like to spruce up your eggs. This recipe can really be made into anything that you want. Feel free to add veggies like peppers or onions.

All mixed together
 Then, take the bacon strips and wrap them around the muffin cups. Be sure to use some nonstick spray before using the bacon.


 After you have placed the bacon in each of the cups, I put a couple potatoes at the bottom of each cup.

Home fries from previous day. 
 Pour the egg mixture into each cup to about the halfway point.
ready for some oven heat 
 Bake in the oven for thirty to thirty five minutes, until the tops of the egg cups are golden and aren't moving about.

oh my goodness.......
Remove the egg cups from the muffin tin, and serve warm. I used one of my favorite trays to serve up this delicious meal.

So there you have it- bacon egg cups. Easy and delicious! My sister absolutely loved them, as did my husband, and it was amazing to sit outside in our three seasons room and eat them in the morning. It really made for a perfect start for our day.

B&B's ain't got nothin' on me.
