Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. // Bacon Egg Cups

If you know me at all, you know that I do not like to cook.  Anything.  My cooking skills consist of popping popcorn (which I sometimes burn) and making grits (yes, I like grits.  What can I say, I did grow up in AL & TN).  This was true until very recently.  Like the past 2 weeks recent.  

And while I would not necessarily consider this cooking (or baking), it is a start for a beginner.  And I have to admit I am kinda liking it:)

Anyway, a few weeks ago I saw this photo on Pinterest and immediately added it to my "YUM" board (which you will notice also has yummy men on it as well).

Without further adieu, 

It is seriously so simple and takes all of 10 mins to prepare (depending on what you want to add to the eggs). 

What you will need:
12 pieces of bacon
8 eggs

How to:
line each muffin tin with bacon
fill each tin 3/4ths the way with whipped eggs
bake in oven at 350 for 30-35 minutes

The first time I made these I added kale, tomatoes and bell pepper.  The last batch was made with kale, onion and pepperoncinis.  You can add really whatever you want.  Just think of whatever is in your favorite omelete.   And personally, I believe the more the better.  Anything but the kitchen sink, which is what I like in my Bloody Marys.  

This recipe was made for a muffin tin with 12 individual tins so scale it accordingly.  

The verdict:
LOVE!  Husband was happy.  I was happy.  Just put them in your fridge (or freezer depending on how fast you plan on eating them) and you have 12 quick breakfasts to go!  Cuts my mornings in half which is perfect for those early mornings when I find it extra hard to get out of bed:)

    1. YES! And it is seriously so easy and simple. Like my husband said, and I think this goes for most men who at least eat meat, "anything is better when wrapped in bacon":)
