Eggs, Bacon & Toast Cups

Eggs, Bacon & Toast Cups

Spur of the moment posting so had to shoot this really quick. It shows.

I must have jumped a foot high when I found these brilliant breakfast egg, bacon & toast cups on the Martha Stewart site.

Had to do a little tweaking because the original recipe just didn’t out work for me. Plus, I added some cheese because, well, just because…

This one’s going on our Christmas breakfast table. They’re adorable.

 

Ingredients:

8 slices of white bread
4 medium eggs
4 slices of bacon
grated cheese
salt & pepper
parsley
butter

 

Directions:

Cook the bacon until it’s almost done.

The original recipe says to just flatten the bread with a rolling-pin. I found it works easier if you remove the crust first. She also uses 1 bread circle per muffin tin, for me 2 per muffin cup worked much better.  Fewer gaps and a firmer cup.
 

Use a 4 1/2 inch cookie cutter to cut out circles and push them, slightly overlapping, into a muffin tin.

Sprinkle a little cheese over the bread. Brush the edges with butter and put a slice of bacon on top of the bread gently pushing it down.

The original recipe used large eggs. It didn’t work for me. I switched to medium eggs and reduced the cooking time.
 

Crack an egg in there and season with salt and pepper.

Bake them in a preheated oven at 350˚F (175˚C) for 15 to 17 minutes, until the egg whites have set.
 

I love these cups! I really do.

Kefta Mkaouara

The moment I bought my tagine I knew this traditional Moroccan dish would be the very first meal I’d cook in it. Kefta Mkaouara is a simple, no-nonsense spicy meatball tagine that is to die for. You’re talking wonderfully seasoned meatballs that are slowly simmered in a sauce made from onion, garlic, tomatoes, spices and (in my case) ras el hanout and harissa. These ingredients combined create a deep, rich…
