    Slices of bread pushed into a muffin tin, brushed with butter and syrup then baked until done with bacon, eggs, cream and grated cheese. It's a meal in a muffin.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 6 rashers bacon
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
    • 6 slices bread, crusts removed
    • 6 eggs
    • 1 pinch salt and black pepper, to taste
    • 1/2 cup thickened cream
    • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Place the bacon in a large frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble and set aside.
    2. Preheat an oven to 190 degrees C. Grease muffin cups.
    3. Combine the melted butter and maple syrup in a small bowl. Flatten a piece of bread with a rolling pin. Brush the bread with the butter mixture. Line the muffin cup with the flattened bread. Repeat with the remaining bread slices. Bake in a preheated oven until the bread crisps, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    4. Sprinkle crumbled bacon into the bottom of the toast cups. Crack an egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each egg with 1 tablespoon of thickened cream and 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake until the whites are just set, about 10 to 14 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your taste.

    Because I did not want to use maple syrup, I just doubled the butter. I made no other changes. This was so easy--my oldest boy was able to help me make this with no issues. To make the bread easier to form to the muffin cups, I used the top of a drinking glass to cut a circle, then flattened the circle with a rolling pin just a touch. I was worried that the bacon and cheese wouldn't be enough but the recipe was just right for each "cup". It's almost like a shortcut Egg in a Basket. Thanks so much for a new favorite--I'll make these again and again.  -  19 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    These were a big hit for brunch with my family. Like another reviewer I scrambled the eggs because once I toasted the bread cups and added the meat they weren't tall enough to hold an entire egg. I made some with bacon and others with sausage and swiss cheese. They came out fantastic! They were gobbled up faster than the danish and fruit I served!  -  23 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    These were an absolute hit when we made them! My only advice is double the recipe and make 12; not only do many muffin pans have 12 slots, but we ate them way too fast for 6 to have been enough!  -  13 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
