Bacon, Eggs, and Toast

Do you like bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast? Well, here a twist to it. Make them fun and cute by putting them in muffin tins.
_MG_8734.jpgStart with some bread or toast, since that is what it will become. Use a round biscuit cutter or circle cookie cutter. Cut out little 4 inch circles. Place the bread in the buttered muffin tins. 
_MG_8736.jpgNext you're going to fry up some bacon. If you're like me you forget about it and sort of burn it. You don't want to cook the bacon completely because it will cook some more later. If you think my bacon looks funny it's because it's from the butcher. It's not from anything prepackaged, so it's not uniform, but oddly shaped.
_MG_8738.jpgStick a piece of bacon over each slice of bread.
_MG_8740.jpgLastly you're going to crack an egg over each slice of bacon. How fun, right?
_MG_8742.jpgNow you can either stick the whole thing in the oven, or if you're like me, and you don't use your oven in the summer time, stick on your grill.
_MG_8744.jpgBake or grill them up until the egg whites are white!
_MG_8746.jpgThen take them out of tins and have a cute little breakfast.

_MG_8749.jpgEggs, bacon, and toast! Perfect. If you don't like your eggs like this then I don't think this dish is for you. Add some fruit on the side and serve it up right away. Enjoy.

Eggs, Bacon, and Toast

12 slices of bread
12 slices of bacon, almost cooked
12 eggs
a little butter
1 muffin tin

Preheat oven to 375˚F. With a rolling pin flatten the bread. Then cut out 12- 4 1/2 inch circles. Cut each circle in half. Then press each half into each muffin cup, overlapping them slightly. Brush the tops of the bread with butter.

Cook bacon until almost crisp. Lay 1 slice of bacon on top of each bread cup. Then crack an egg over each cup. Bake until egg whites are just set, approximately 20-25 minutes. Run a small knife around the cups to loosen the toasts. Serve immediately.

The girls told me about this. My mom used to do something very similar when I was a little girl, she called it "Eggs in a Hole". I'll have to share that with you sometime. They are yummy, aren't they?

Linda, we've made eggs in a hole too! You just use a cookie sheet instead of a muffin pan right? Those are good to.

Yum! I'm thinking I'll have to try this on our upcoming camping trip.
