Easy, delicious, and such a cute presentation! I was a bit skeptical about these, but they were delicious. Fun for serving large crowds an elegant looking meal.
So easy! You can cook the bacon ahead of time, especially if you are preparing several. That is what makes it a time saver.
You can add different things to them also. Finely (or not) chopped tomatoes, peppers, scallions, mushrooms etc. A little bit of grated cheese on top.
Baked Eggs in Bacon Wraps
12 slices bacon
12 fresh eggs
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven 375 degrees.
In medium frying pan fry bacon to soft transparent stage. Drain on paper towels.
Line each slice around the side of each muffin cup. Ends may overlap. Break egg directly in the center of each muffin cup. 12 cup muffin pan. Slightly salt and pepper.
Bake in oven 15 to 20 minutes. Watch for whites and yolks to begin to set.
Take out with small spatula on a serving plate.
Serve with fork and knife.
If you want the tops to be basted, after ten minutes of cooking, baste each egg once with 1/2 teaspoon of water.
You can fry bacon the night before and drain and refrigerate for morning.
