Breakfast in a Cup

I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while now i found one just like it in a cookbook last year but it was baked ham cups with a egg in the middle. this one has bacon,toast,egg and cheese! i bought these ramekins from target last year for a dollar! i love them. 

  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked or uncooked ( i used turkey bacon)
  • shredded Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter four ramekins and set aside.

While oven is warming, fry bacon slices in a pan until partially cooked, but not crispy (if using precooked bacon skip this step). Remove from pan and drain on paper towel.

Meanwhile, butter the insides of 4 ramekins and cut crusts from 4 slices of bread. Gently press the bread slices into the ramekins.

Place the bacon slice inside the bread, creating a well for the egg. Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese in the center of each bread cup.

Crack an egg into the center of each bread cup. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Cook for 10-15, to your desired level of doneness. Pop toast cups out of ramekins to serve.
