Bacon and Egg Muffins – Breakfast in a Cup

Bacon, egg, toast and veggies all in one muffin cup!  Very nice weekend breakfast or brunch.

Great Brunch

I thought this concept was a terrific idea when I saw it on Stumble Upon.

A little fussy but well worth it

It’s not often that I’ll make anything fussy–and yes, these are a bit fussy–but in this case it’s worth it (at least I thought so).

This can’t be repeated enough times, but DO spray or grease your muffin tin VERY well. I had a trial run with these a couple of days before I made what you see in the photos, and I used butter to grease because I tend to avoid cooking sprays as much as I can.  I also used thick-cut bacon because I had a few slices left.  That was not the best choice since it didn’t crisp very well. I also had moderate sticking problems, but my regular-sized muffin pans are not non stick.  They are those galvanized cheapies from the dollar store LOL.  I managed to get them out but I tore the bread base a bit.  Here’s my test subjects–

Test run made with large eggs and thick-cut bacon–which is NOT the best choice

So when I did them “for reals,” I broke down and used spray and I sprayed each cup until it was white!!!  Had no problem getting them out.  I also used medium eggs because large (and anything over) overflowed the cup.  I also used a different brand of bacon and regular, not thick cut. You can of course do this in a Texas–large size– muffin pan, then larger eggs will not present a problem.

I will caution that you watch these very closely after about 10 minutes since the bacon will start to get over-crisp quickly. You want it crisp so the cup holds it’s shape but not burned.
