It is I – your King of Baconia – King Teddy
and we’re bakin’ with bacon this morning!
Who says a King can’t cook right? Right! I invade the castle kitchen every single Saturday morning to bring you some fun stuff made with bacon in mind because we all are – after all – BACONIANS!
Today I have an EASY EASY EASY recipe but it’s quick and tasty and my Dad LOVES these for breakfast. Ready??
King Teddy’s Easy Bacon/Egg/Toast Cups
One muffin tin – doesn’t matter if it’s a six or twelve or more size – however many of these eggs you want to make! My Mom uses a 6-muffin size tin – five for Dad and one for her (!!!!!).
However many eggs you want to cook
However much bacon you want to use but at least one strip per egg cup
One slice of bread for each egg cup you’re making
How To Make them:
Preheat your oven to 400. Butter the inside of the muffin tins. Cut the crusts off your bread and roughly fashion into a “sort of” circle and tuck a slice of bread into each muffin tin fitting it to the cup snugly. Put the tin with bread into the oven and let it toast in the 400 degree oven about 5 minutes until lightly browned. Cook bacon until it’s cooked but still “pliable” and drain. Turn oven down to 350. Take a piece of bacon and wrap around the interior of each muffin cup…….then crack an egg into the “cup” – you can top with a little cheese if you want to. Bake in oven about 15 minutes or until the whites are set.
They will just pop right out of the muffin tins onto the plate – You can use a fork or spoon to take them out…….!
Your family will think the bacon fairy granted their wish – these are easy and delicious!
So you just can’t get much easier than this so give it a try. I will also tell you that Mom makes these sometimes NOT using the toast – she will line the muffin tin cups with a slice of ham then add the egg, cheese and bake. Interesting but with the bread it really is fabulous to have everything inside a crusty bit of bread.
Happy Saturday from the kitchen of Castle Baconia!
With Kingly Hugs, King Teddy
On a sad note………….
Before we leave we want to say a final farewell to yet another friend………..Mr. Buttons, from the family of Timmy Tomcat – has taken his final trip to join all the other Angels we all know and love and miss. He had kidney disease and fought a hard fight to stay with his big kitty family and his Dad. If you haven’t left a message for them, you can visit them HERE to leave one. Farewell Mr. Buttons.
