Everyone enjoyed, but the eggs were hard cooked. Next time I think I will pre-cook the bacon cups 10 mins and then cook the eggs 10 mins so the yolks are not solid. Otherwise great!!!! Big brunch hit!!!
similar to my recipe eggs benedict cups #106668 (I use ham,cream, and cheese). Bacon sounds like a great alternative. Maybe you could put bacon in muffin tin first and prebake 5-10 minutes before adding the egg and all else to make bacon crispier!
These really are delicious,,,I personally dont mind the hard yolk, but I think next time I might try a slice of tomato between the egg and the cheese,,,this might not help much with the yolk problem but it will add another flavour to a really tasty and simple brunch dish
I can't believe I have not rated this! I can't count how many times my family has enjoyed this Recipe. Thank you Bobtail!
These came out great! I scrambled the eggs first and added some salt, pepper and some cheese. To take them out of the muffin tin take a knife and cut around the edge and then pinch either side of the bacon and lightly twist it out. ^^ awesome recipe! Love it!
I really didn't like how this turned out. The yolks would have been perfect after 20 minutes, but the whites were still runny. When the whites were ok, the yolks were overdone (I guess eggs cook differently in a pan). The bacon was rubbery. And they DID stick, badly. Several of the photos seem to have used oversize pans - maybe that would have worked better; I used a standard-sized pan.
This is very similar to how I make my bacon and egg cups. First of all, for those saying the bacon is not cooked through, trust me when I say this: precook your bacon in frying pan first! Only cook till partially done so its still flexible. Drain on paper towels. Then line the muffin tin with the bacon. The results are so much bettter. When I make these, first I spray my muffin pan with cooking spray,then take a slice of bread, and cut out circle with biscuit cutter then pat down on the bread to make it flat. Then slice in half so you have two halves.place one half in tin the the next half so it lines the muffin cup. Use extra flattened bread to fill hole on bottom. Then brush the breads with melted butter. Then lay a partially cooked bacon slice directly in the cup, letting the bacon hang over a bit on the sides. Then crack your egg in the cup over the bacon and bake in oven. Or for those who don't like the hard cooked eggs, whisk the egg in a bowl with a splash of milk, and fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake. Trust me this method is so much better!
Bacon didn't cook through, and eggs hard
The best oven cooking time for eggs is about 8-13 minutes; using fully cooked meats like ham or prosciutto - my favorite - makes it easier to cook the eggs to your liking and still have the meat be safe to eat. Otherwise, partially cook the bacon before lining the cups or before adding the eggs is the best.
