I've made this a few times now as the first time was a bit of a disaster as I used a regular size muffin pan which my slice of bread fitted perfectly but proved to be to small for the egg, bacon and cream so had to buy bread which is large sliced and used my texas muffin pan for delicious results and for breakfast I baked them so they were still runny but to take on a picnic I baked till the yolk was hard and were very much enjoyed, thank you Bonnie G #2, made for Rookie Recipes tag game.
Bonnie, what a winner of a recipe. This simple to make breakfast treat was excellent. Quick, amazing flavors and textures. I made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. All the flavors blend perfectly together to create a memorable meal. Thanks so much for sharing. My finished egg muffins didn't look so pretty because I had difficulty getting them out of the ramkins I used, but boy do they taste good. Thanks for sharing a recipe that will be made again in my home. This is a second and third repeater.
