Intro: Bacon-Wrapped Eggs for Breakfast

This sort of redefines the term ‘bacon and eggs for breakfast’. Each egg muffin is wrapped with one piece of bacon, and baked in muffin tins. This makes a perfect breakfast for any morning.

See variations on this recipe in the last step.

Check out my other instructables on my profile, or on my NEW FOOD WEBSITE: Michael's Test Kitchen !

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients: (serves 8)

8 pieces raw bacon strips

8 eggs

Sprinkle of salt

Sprinkle of pepper

⅓ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Step 2: Cheese

Shred the cheese and set aside.

Step 3: The Bacon

The goal is to undercook the bacon so that it is still very flexible and not crispy. Preheat oven to 375. When heated, place bacon in for about 10 minutes. Take out of oven.

Step 4: The Muffin Tins

When bacon is cool to touch, place them (as shown) in the muffin tins. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 5: The Eggs

Crack each egg into the bacon-wrapped tins. Sprinkle over with salt and pepper and shredded cheese.

Step 6: Bake...and You're Done

Place in preheated 400 degree oven, and bake for a little over 15 minutes, or until eggs are fully eggs are fully cooked, and bacon is crispy.

Serve warm.

...and, thanks to some of the comments and feedback I've received on this instructable, I've inserted a couple ideas/variations:

1. Make an omelette variation on this: whip the egg with shredded cheese, half and half, and vegetables, or maybe some Feta, and cook it up the same way, wrapped in bacon, for a nice twist on breakfast.

2. For a more full-on variation: Add raw hash-browns to the bottom of the muffin tins, or some...pancake batter, and do everything else the same way.

3. Or you could always do a combination of those two. There are many many ways to change around this instructable.

Enjoy!

I think you should be able to refrigerate them after cooking them, but if wouldn't be that great for the texture of the eggs. Another fresher option would be to freeze the eggs raw, after you pour them into the bacon. But I've never tried that storage before...

This is so amazing, thank you so much for sharing! Do you think that you could substitute out the cheese and it would still taste the same?

Ok... thank you! We like to put the dried yeast on our roasted or steamed cauliflour!

Thank you! You could certainly eliminate the cheese and it shouldn't be much of a change.

Also, you can add mushrooms, onion sharp cheddar and green peppers to the eggs as an omelette version. I make these for my grandkids, they love them. I don't precook the bacon, but I do if they want sausage instead of bacon and use the sausage grease to float them in. Sometimes wet use both sausage and bacon!
