Bacon Egg and Cheese Cups

Breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day. When we’re not rushing to get the kids out of the house in the morning, we like to make a good cup of coffee and cook a good breakfast. Our dishes usually include bacon, eggs, bread, really great cheese and bacon (did I say that already?). We’ve mixed all of these ingredients together in various ways over the years, but the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Cups have been the most fun to eat. It’s simple to make and is delicious.

Ingredients:

  • bacon
  • eggs
  • aged cheddar cheese (do not skimp here, a good cheese will make the difference between good and great!)
  • bread
  • muffin pan and liners
  • salt & pepper

Cook bacon slowly on medium heat. Take the pan off the heat just before the bacon is fully cooked.

 

While the bacon is cooking, use a cookie cutter or a drinking glass to make bread circles.Bacon Egg & Cheese Cups 3

Drizzle a small amount of bacon grease into the bottom of each muffin liner to prevent sticking before placing the bread circles in the pan. You can also use cooking spray.
