No your usual rich crust to these. These are a good breakfast food. My daughters heat them up in the microwave for a fast breakfast or a snack.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove crusts from bread; spread bread with butter on one side.
  2. Place buttered side down, pressing firmly into muffin cups.
  3. Be careful not to tear the bread.
  4. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, combine eggs and milk in a large liquid measuring cup.
  6. Set aside.
  7. Saute bacon and green onions until both are cooked; drain fat.
  8. Divide evenly between the 12 bread cups.
  9. Pour a bit of the egg mixture over top, allowing it to be partially absorbed, then add more.
  10. Sprinkle with cheese.
  11. Return to oven and bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden and puffed.
  12. Cool and remove from tins.
  13. These do stick a bit but are well worth the effort.

What's not to love? Bacon, eggs, cheese all together in a bread cup to go! Soo yummy!. The bottom is like a savory bread pudding with the fluffy egg. I used fat free half & half and had to finely dice some cheddar/swiss (used both) didn't have any shredded. Perfect breakfast with unlimited variations. Thanks for posting Cullinaryjudge!

I made these little quiches for my kids for breakfast as a special treat. The little toast cups can be made the night before and then the assembling of the eggs goes quicker. It's good without the bacon too.
