Golden Bacon and Egg Cups

This is another take on my previous recipe, Bacon and Egg Cups. I made this for dinner today, to go with a cup of creamy soup. I've beaten the eggs with the salt and pepper today, instead of baking the whole egg. Only four ingredients required: bacon, eggs salt and pepper. The spring onion garnishing is totally optional. 

Bacon and Egg Cups
6 eggs
6-8 strips of streaky bacon
oil for greasing the baking tin

Baking Temperature: 180C
Baking Time: 10-15 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven.
  2. Grease and line a muffin baking tin with bacon. Trim if necessary.
  3. Beat eggs with salt and pepper. Pour into each tin, carefully.
  4. Bake until egg is set.
  5. Garnish with spring onion before serving.

Line baking tin.
Beat egg, salt and pepper.
Pour egg into lined tin.
Baked egg cups.

This is more of a handy breakfast/brunch food. The egg mixture is very basic, and can be spiced up with the addition of herbs, chopped vegetables and meat for a frittatta-style mixture. The egg cups puffed up quite a lot right after baking, but once cooled down, the dome shape flattened out. I am sharing this with Bake-Along No. 24 - Theme : Bake with Four Ingredients as well.
