Introduction: How to Make Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tortilla Cups

In this instructable I will show you how to make cracking bacon and egg breakfast tortilla cups. These bacon and egg breakfast tortilla cups are great for a Sunday breakfast or brunch but also nice for a Monday lunch or a Friday tea break. They can be shared any time you like. Hearty, salty, eggy yep these are mouth watering delicious.

Four things are important when making this dish: fresh eggs, good quality bacon, wholesome tortillas (these are flour tortillas) and a muffin tin. The preparations of this dish is really quite simple and takes a matter of minutes.

You can use store bought flour tortillas or if you have more time I recommend to make fresh flour tortillas (you can follow this instructable for this).To not waist food you can cut the tortillas in half and fold them in the muffin tin.The tortillas I use are medium size to give you an idea of how big these are. Before you make the tortilla cups use some cooking spray in the muffin tin so they do not stick.

More information and a printable recipe can be found on The Tortilla Channel.

Do not over cook the bacon as it will cook in the oven as well. If you like your eggs runny look when they are about 15 minutes in the oven. If you like your eggs well done leave them in the oven for at least 20 minutes.
